Does the March 3 election determine the winner of the 37th State Assembly seat? Or do the top two candidates go on to November?

For those interested, there will be a debate on February 19 at 6:30pm inside the University Club downtown.

Can someone point me to a link giving more information about the February 20th debate at the University Club? My Google search has been unsuccessful as I tried to confirm the details.

@9:52 Do you subscribe to Nextdoor? There's talk of the event there. The Debate will be held at 6:30pm at the University Club (1332 Santa Barbara St). It will be moderated by Jerry Roberts, former editor of the Santa Barbara News-Press.

Will Socialist anarchist Jonathan Abboud get 50.1%? Das’ paid District 1 Staffer Darcel Elliott is out at UCSB pushing votes for Isla Vista government payrolled Abboud, who is endorsed by SB Chapter of Democratic Socialists of America. Abboud supports open borders, amnesty, Medicare for All, along with Salud. Exciting election. UCSB students are a force! VOTE! SB207 is law: register, RE-register, change your address at the polls for a valid ballot — not a provisional one. Unlimited potential for fraud

Mr. Abboud is a principled young man who is defined by the enemies he has made on Edhat. If Murrillo didn't have 100% support of the unions he would have a good chance at this election. I predict he will have a long career in politics because he is off to such a good start.

A is for Anarchy. A is for Abboud. A is for Abboud inciting the foot-stomping, shout-down SBCC's Pledge of Allegiance protest to make it national news. A is for Abboud's arrogance threatening to unleash the IV vote on the rest of us. Abboud is just one more young man in a hurry. We don't need another one.

In California, primary races do not determine the outcome of an election except at the local level. So even if a candidate receives more than 50% of the vote, the race will be on the ballot in the general election in November. In this case, with six candidates, the likelihood of getting one getting 50.1% is pretty nearly 0 anyway.

How can someone as openly biased as jerry Roberts moderate anything?

Translation: for every three people in SB county, two might be Democrats and one might be GOP. With our dismal voter turn-out rates, it means GOP candidates can have a fighting chance if they all don't stay home.

8:09: Welcome to the world outside your own blue bubble. From Santa Barbara County Elections Office - 2016: HILLARY CLINTON DEM 107,142 votes-59.90% --- DONALD J. TRUMP REP 56,365 votes - 31.51%. There are a few more GOP here besides Randy and myself.

JR seems balanced compared to most. How many conservatives/moderates are there in Santa Barbara, and how many have been asked AND accepted to appear on Newsmakers? This is the question! But I think that Randy Rowse counts (he's basically the only Republican left in SB).

Roberts doesn't even know there is life outside his blue bubble, so he is incapable of forming unbiased questions, let alone follow-up question when faced with regurgitated Democrat party lines. Engaging fellow, writes well, but basically a nicely paid shill for this one-party town. Nothing more than a smug local elitist in what is becoming increasingly a NASCAR nation. If he was a authentic political pundit, he would sense the changing political winds expressed even here. This would make his day job more interesting, and bust up his current intellectual laziness.

Jerry Robert’s is a blue blooded Dem with obvious biases. His questioning aligns with his thinking. I like that he’s open about who he is. When’s the last time you viewed a JR Newsmaker show segment of interviews with conservatives and moderates on any topic?

What's his bias? Everyone has a bias but it seems to me, watching his program, that he works hard to be fair and open to a variety of opinions.

Jerry Roberts will moderate a debate open to the general public at the University Club on Wednesday, February 20th, from 6:30PM to 9:30PM. The University Club is at 1332 Santa Barbara St. In answer to your question only the top two candidates with the most votes will be on the ballot in November.

Unless one of the 7 candidates gets more than 50% of the votes. Asking
