Manh Nguyen Edged Lan Diep for Second Place

The official results barring a recount request indicate that  Diep lost to Nguyen by 13 votes.   The runoff in June will be between Manh Nguyen and Tim Orozco.

Nguyen already called Bob Dihllon to ask for his endorsement.  So far, Dhillon politely brushed him off.    Nguyen also had his Vietnamese supporters calling Lan Diep to pressure him to give him the endorsement.  The message to Lan Diep was if you want to be a viable candidate and get the Vietnamese-American votes next time around, you better endorse Manh Nguyen.

With only about 4,000 registered Vietnamese-American voter in D4,  Nguyen knows that he will need to get the votes outside his ethnic base.   LSI has not reviewed the final numbers yet, but from the returned absentee ballots,  about 3,000 Viet-Americans went to poll in this election.  The high turnout is much better than the average 25% turnout for the whole D4.
