(Ooops…not ready yet)….Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is not ready to announce.
Tuesday the Orange County Democrat’s office sent out emails to supporters. The emails said Sanchez would be announcing her intention to run for the US Senate seat being vacated by Barbara Boxer. Later, Sanchez’s office released a statement saying the email had been sent as a mistake. They said the Congresswoman had not made up her mind to run or not. Sanchez has been a very good friend to Imperial County, especially on Border issues. Her influence with the Congressional Homeland Security committee is said to have been instrumental in getting funding for the expanding Calexico Downtown Port of Entry included in the federal budget. State Attorney General Kamala Harris is the only official candidate seeking to fill Boxer’s senate seat.
