The race for the Republican nomination for State Insurance Commissioner has gotten really really close after additional late ballots have been tallied after last Tuesday's California Primary Election.
The super underfunded Brian Fitzgerald (who bankrolled a huge amount of publicity from the ever popular "John and Ken Show" on KFI Talk Radio still leads heavy favorite Assemblyman Mike Villines by a little more than 5,300 votes out of nearly 1.6 million ballots cast.
BTW....Fitzgerald was also my pick. See bottom link below.
Here are the raw totals:
Brian Fitzgerald 780,575 50.2%
Mike Villines 775,206 49.8%
Fitzgerald spent less than $5,000 on his entire campaign and has sent a political shock wave throughout the political world here in California. Stay tuned. Turn on John and Ken at KFI each and every weekday afternoon for the latest campaign updates.
