SALINAS – Assemblymember Anna Caballero released the following statement today regarding the status of the vote count in the 12th Senate District:
“I want to thank the hundreds of volunteers who knocked on thousands of doors across the 12th Senate District to deliver our message. As a result of their effort, and the enthusiastic response of thousands of voters through the District, we finished election night with a slight lead.
“But Tuesday night’s results also made it clear there are still a significant number of votes to count in the 12th Senate District.
“Our campaign is prepared to monitor the vote counting in each of the six election offices in the counties which make up the senate district including, Fresno, Madera, Merced, Monterey, San Benito and Stanislaus counties.
“We look forward to the final result and are cautiously optimistic, based on Tuesday’s results, that the vote count will conclude in our favor.”
