Assembly District Race shows Catharine Baker in lead

Original post made by Anonymous on Feb 4, 2014

I was excited to learn over the weekend that Catharine Baker, the only woman and only Republican is leading her three male Democrat opponents in polling on the race for Assembly District 16. Polling ordered by the Tim Sbranti campaign revealed Catharine Baker in first place with 26%, Sbranti in second position with 23%, Steve Glazer in third with 13% and Newell Arnerich a distant fourth with 5%. Undecided was at 29%

Pleasanton small business attorney Catharine Baker is getting support from across the district. In other weekend news, fundraising reports show that she outraised her opponents during the last six months though they have been in the race longer. Catharine Baker is the only parent of school-aged children in the race and is actively involved in schools making effective public education one of the main platforms in her campaign. Clearly voters would like to see more balance in Sacramento and are skeptical of one party rule in the legislature.
