AD16: Republican Catharine Baker Poised To Turn Blue Assembly Seat Red

ASSEMBLY | DISTRICT 16 | Republican upstart Catharine Baker may be causing quite a few headaches for Assembly Democrats Wednesday night. The Tri Valley attorney leads Dublin Mayor Tim Sbranti in the 16th Assembly District race by less than four points.

Baker won 51.9 percent of the vote Wednesday morning after 100 percent of precincts in Contra Costa County and Alameda County were counted. Sbranti, a Democrat, garnered 48.1 percent, although more ballots remain to be counted.

The result, as it stands, will certainly be a blow to the Democrat's super-majority in the Legislature and turned the moderate district red for the first time in six years. Assemblymember Joan Buchanan is termed out of the seat next month.

While the demographics suggested a potential and rare battleground for Republicans in the East Bay, special interests money dominated the race over the past few months. Independent expenditures committees backed by labor poured money in support of Sbranti, while Republican activist Charles Munger, Jr. funded an onslaught of ads against Baker's opponent.

Couldn't be prouder of our dear Catharine. Branti conceded almost ten minutes after the polls closed, as well he should.

Really want to thank the Team Baker All-Stars in no particular order: Blanca Nunes--you have courage, girl!; Spencer Johnston, Evenlyn B. Kesterson and so many more. It wouldn't have been possible without all of you.

Dear Catharine returns a voice of moderation to this district and finally puts the people ahead of the special interests.

Our long nightmare is finally over!

Well look at 1:37 the anti union troll is making up names again. She will be vulnerable in 2016. In the meantime we will give you a couple of victories if we win 95% of the races and sweep the statewide ones.

Mr. Maxwell and I couldn't believe how the unions utterly destroyed Steve Glazer last June. We were in complete disbelief. After we saw how that turned out we had no choice but to encourage all of our Democratic friends to support Catharine. As longtime Democrats, if this is what we can expect in the future we will have to decide if we need to re-register. We feel vindicated that the unions got thrown to the gutter where they belong. They needed a good comeuppance and they sure got one.

Thank you so much, Catharine, you will be a fine representative for the people and not the special interests. Glad to see that you will protect us by banning BART strikes.

Thank you again.

I'll call you a liar. I have watch you post on different candidates (dozens of them on this blog) and your success rate is pitiful. You are always foul-mouthed, sexist and anti union. The Democratic party had over a 95% success rate in the elections and so did the Labor Unions. Your conservatives had a even lower rate of success. We swept ALL the statewide races and if you think Reed is the next Governor of our great state you are really mentally unbalanced. Gavin Newsome, Kamala Harris and John Chiang might have something to say about that. You hav also ran for Hayward city council 3 times and didn't even get 5% of the vote. I guess we can also call you a loser.

Our Democrats and a better a candidate ALL won!

Not to worry. I'll be coming back again and again, from time to time, to rub your union slut noses in it. Pumped!

--Assemblywoman-elect Cathy Baker

--BART Board Member Bob Raburn

--Mayor Sam Liccardo



Those were the only three that I was working. Oh, Swalwell back in June. Whorbett went down the drain.

How sweet it is!

I count 3 wins for you. Actually 2 because Alameda county trades unions supported Raburn. Meanwhile, Labor and the Democratic Party swept all the important races at the top of the ticket and almost all the other local races.Looks to me like you were destroyed.

Boy, you sluts sure try to backtrack and pull out victory from the jaws of defeat. All were wins, while you lost bigtime!

First, learn how to count.
Second, learn how to spell: m-o-d-e-r-a-t-i-o-n!
Third, practice repeating: ASSEMBLYWOMAN CATHARINE BAKER; CONGRESSMAN ERIC SWALWELL; BART MEMBER BOB RABURN; and MAYOR SAM LICCARDO.

All are Democrats save Cate, and some would persuasively argue that she's closer to one than that radical has-been Branti.

The sweet smell of victory!

Well let's see 9:44. You lost every statewide race, most local and county races, and by my count only won 4 races in all of the Bay Area. I like those odds and percentages.

Swalwell has a very liberal voting record, and had many liberal endorsements. More unions backed Raburn than backed Tam, and Raburn has admitted to bringing in the wrong labor negotiator that helped cause the strike. Liccardo has already promised to try and patch up his discord with the employees, and Baker will probably lose in 2016 when there will be a much larger and progressive turn-out.

But I'm glad you are happy about your very small success rate. The sweet smell of victory was ours, and I think you know it, unless you are delusional.

Absolutely amazing. This from the bitch who was determined that ol' Whorbett was going to win, win, win!

Worth posting yet again:

You couldn't give us the time of day if your radical life depended on it. WE TOOK IT--ALL!!!

If union whores continue to think they are better than their masters--taxpayers--then they will continue to lose big time.

The people's choice candidates were ALL winners!

We love Eric Swalwell. He's Israel's best friend!

Not like ol' Whortney Stark.

The unions had a 95% winning record in the Bay Area. Thank you. Swalwell has a very liberal voting record, and had many liberal endorsements. More unions backed Raburn than backed Tam, and Raburn has admitted to bringing in the wrong labor negotiator that helped cause the strike. Liccardo has already promised to try and patch up his discord with the employees, and Baker will probably lose in 2016 when there will be a much larger and progressive turn-out.

But I'm glad you are happy about your very small success rate. The sweet smell of victory was ours, and I think you know it, unless you are delusional.

The People's Choice candidates had a 100% winning record in the Bay Area.

NOW you support Baker, Raburn, Swalwell and Liccardo? We don't think so. Lest you misunderstand, we're continuing to rub your little nose in it.

Thank YOU!

The people's candidates were the union and Democratic candidates as shown by the huge 95% success rate. Since we know you have posted against, and said you worked against so many of the winners in your posts, your success rate was less than 5%, just like the % of votes you received when you last ran for Hayward City Council. What a loser you are!

p.s. My union supported Swalwell and Raburn, not Liccardo and Baker, although they have both reached out to us and offered to work with us in hopes of getting re-elected.

The only one who has lost touch with reality is Anon 11:11. The pro-worker poster was right. Almost everywhere in the State of California and especially the Bay Area pro-worker candidates won far more races than they lost. That's a fact.

Baker should lose in 2016 when there will be a much larger, younger and more progressive turnout.

Anon 9:13, I too agree with the 11:12 post. Since you were 10:19, it is surprising you would agree with 11:12.

Regarding your 10:19 post: Consider limiting each blurb to a single entry. When you post the identical screed many times, it looks very much like a broken record sounds. This will lead people to conclude that you’re either inept at posting, or deliberately obnoxious. Remember, most people see posts like yours as small piles of vomit that they can quickly step around. But when the same vomitus post appears multiple times, you force my friends here to slosh through a virtual lake of spew. Ironically, this will not only make more people like you even less, it will decrease the odds that someone might actually share your world view. LOL

Wishing our dear Catharine, Sam, Bob and Eric all a very happy Thanksgiving. We are blessed to have you all as our representatives. Mr. Maxwell and I are very pleased that the union whores returned to the gutter where they belong.

Wishing the hundreds of local union and Democratic backed candidates in the Bay Area who were victorious, happy holidays. I'm sure we will have even more success in the Presidential year elections in 2016 when even more conservatives will be kicked into the gutter to join the above poster who lost his own race by a large margin. ;)

Wishing our People's Choice candidates--Sam, Cathy, Eric, and Bob great success. They will be laying down the law with the whores and working for the people, as it should be.

Happy days ahead, ya'll!

Wishing the over 95% union and Democratic party backed candidates great success. They were the People's choice and the sexist above knows it. In 2016 we will have an even higher success rate with a more liberal turn out. Happy days are indeed here.

We love you Cathy, Bob, Eric, and Sam. You are the People's Choice All-Stars!

The following wet dream brought to you by the losing union whores. EVERYONE of the winners mentioned above in 11:11 lost big time. They poured their 'hearts,' souls--such as they are--and shitloads of dirty money into those elections and came up losers. They had their asses kicked clear out of the county.

Ladies and gentlemen of Alameda County we give you the unions stellar record: Whortney Stark/Ellen Whorbett, Lena HO Tam, Tom Shitbranti, and as a special bonus, Dave Whortese. The people came, they slew they union sluts, and they conquered. Long may the people rule.

I've been writing this for more than two years, and our hard work paid off. Union whores came up 0, and we love it! Not to worry. I'll be returning from time to time to remind them of their marquee losses at the polls. They got so fucked up, it ain't even funny!

The problem with the poster who is anti-union above, IS as the unions shrink, so does the middle class. We need the good wages and benefits the unions provide to keep our economy strong. Congrats to the over 95% of the union and democratic backed candidates that won in our area. They were the People's Choice!

Wishing the hundreds of local union and Democratic backed candidates in the Bay Area who were victorious, happy holidays. I'm sure we will have even more success in the Presidential year elections in 2016 when even more conservatives will be kicked into the gutter to join the above poster who lost his own race by a large margin.

To the wet dreamers, hey, we took everything we concentrated on. Always working for independent Democrats who stand up to the union whores. Next up, State Senator Steve Glazer in 2016 and Governor Chuck Reed in 2018. Democrats of whom we can be proud!

The All-Star Team of Cathy, Eric, Bob and Sam say have a great holiday season, ya'll!

To the 11:31 poster, are you really that stupid? Chuck Reed wouldn't have a chance against Gavin Newsome or Kamala Harris and Glazer came in third in his Assembly race.

Also, clean up your language if you want anyone to take you seriously. From what I can read in the above posts the Democrats and the unions are very happy that they won almost all the races in our area and so am I.

Thanks for the truth! May the union whores do 'as well' as they did in Dublin, San Jose, Pleasanton, Wisconsin and elsewhere in the new year. I'll continue to do my part by taking a dump on them each and every time. Woo hoo!

My husband and I also could never bring ourselves to support dirty union whores. We don't believe in robbing the taxpayers' pockets to line those of filthy special interests.

Our sincere thanks to the person who continues to defend us over the larded union sluts. Our household is solidly behind Governor Chuck Reed and our next state senator Steve Glazer. As life-long Democrats, we had no trouble supporting clean Cathy Baker over the dirty incompetent who went down to defeat. Thanks to the independent-minded voters in the district clean politicians who are not beholden to the corrupt union whores will rule the day for decades to come.

Thank you to the People's Choice winners!

The People's choice winners were the Democrats and Unions with a 95% success rate. We love the Bay Area!

The voter turn out in 2016 will be much larger and much more progressive. This spells doom for Baker who won in an extremely low turn out year with a much higher percentage of conservative voters. I know my spouse and I will be voting in 2016 and will be voting for Tim Sbranti if he runs.

Amen brother or sister. Don't let the anti union poster throw out misleading facts. Most of us are very happy that the East Bay is both a Democratic and Union stronghold. Looks like a majority of the State is too, which led to the sweep of all the Statewide offices. Tim Sbranti in 2016 will be a favorite to take out Baker.
