SD-16 Vidak up in internal
California SD-16 Republican candidate Andy Vidak leads Democrat Leticia Perez by 4 points in his internal for their July 23 run-off. He leads by 11 with “high-interest voters." You'd expect him to lead in an internal, especially after winning the primary, but the "high-interest voters" is interesting. The GOP polled “high-interest voters" in 2012 and it gave them skewed results, as far more "low interest" voters showed up than they expected. This is a July election, however, in a very low turnout district. Democrats usually have trouble in summer elections in California. So Vidak could be headed for a win, even though Barack Obama won big here in 2012.
