48th CD special election set for Oct. 4

Bea TiritilliFrom the valuable daily Roundup of California political news, I learned this morning that the governor has set October 4 as the date of the congressional special election in Orange County. Technically, Schwarzenegger set December 6 as the election date, but the first round, an open primary, is Oct. 4.

Green Party member Béa Tiritilli has already started campaigning in the district, which is considered a Republican stronghold. Tiritilli has a thoughtful platform that includes a call for a six-month withdrawl of the American troops in Iraq and a nuanced position on abortion (Tiritilli is Catholic and has two adopted children).
