Humboldt Democrat Endorsed Candidates dominate local elections!


I know some people like to downplay the importance of endorsements and many pick on the local Democrats for their candidates, but you can’t argue with the record. Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee (HCDCC) endorsed city, county, community service district candidates and measures are 45-7 since 2008. 86.5% victories. Over 25 wins in a row! And I know I am missing some. Here is a list of endorsed winners:
