ELECTIONS 2006


Basking in the glory of the Democratic tidal wave that swept the nation this week, Congressperson Lois Capps celebrates her victory Tuesday night at SOhO. Capps was joined in her jubilation by the Democratic candidate for the 2nd District seat, Janet Wolf. As of press time, Wolf appeared poised to take the election over Republican opponent Dan Secord. However, with fewer than 1,000 votes separating them and several absentee ballots still uncounted, both candidates shied away from specific declarations of defeat or victory Tuesday night. Top vote-getters Michael Bennett and Eric Onnen destroyed the incumbent slate in the Goleta City Council race.
