    In fact, Loretta presented one of the major awards at the annual ECCO Dinner last Saturday.

    ECCO is the big LGBT PAC in OC, and Loretta honored Greg Willenborg, a big progressive activist in Santa Ana...
    In fact, he was one of the "angels" who helped Loretta win her historic victory 10 years ago!

      There is a great hatred in Orange County against latinos.  It's pretty unbeleivable really.  But it's what it is and that's why it's amazing that Loretta is even in congress.  Now as for Mr. Nguyen, while we tend to think of Orange County Republicans as a fairly white group of people, the Vietnamese community tends to be very Republican as well.  I remember a few years ago how that video store owner in Westminster put up the Vietnamese flag and a portrait of Ho Chi Mihn and how it started a near riot and seige.

        And once again, we can (at least partly) thank Loretta for this! She's done a whole lot to endear herself with the Vietnamese-American community, and this is why young Vietnamese-American voters (as in 3rd generation and down) are trending Democratic...

        She's even won over older Vietnamese voters by condemning human rights abuses by the Communist regime in Vietnam.
