Torrance City Councilman Pat Furey won a resounding victory and will be sworn in on July 15th as the next Mayor of Torrance. He defeated two of his council colleagues handily. And although a non-partisan race, he proved that “Republican Torrance” can be won by a Democrat. Bakersfield City Councilmember Russell Johnson moved on to the November General Election in his bid to be Kern County Assessor-Recorder. Johnson was very nearly the top vote getter despite being in the race for just three months.
Teresa Pineda Magno and John Morris, both LA County Deputy District Attorneys and virtual unknowns, were successful on Tuesday night. Magno secured her seat as a Los Angeles County Superior Court Justice (Seat #97) and Morris will move on to the November General Election in his bid for LA County Assessor, despite neither candidate having any name recognition prior to their campaigns.
“To win 100% of our races in back-to-back elections, is a tremendous feat. It not only says a lot about the quality of the candidates we are working with, but also the quality of our work, ” said Patrick Furey, Co-Founder of the up-and-coming political consulting firm. “Our direct mail – from design, to printing, to data, to timing – has been superior across the board. And our online marketing has really set our candidates apart from the rest. This is evident in our two voter guides as well.”
In addition to their campaign victories, Liberty also saw increased popularity in their two voter guide slate mailers – California Justice Voter Guide and Parents for Progress. Over 83% of candidates featured in the guides were victorious on election day, despite featuring underdogs throughout the state. In some areas, the voter guides again featured a 100% win rate.
