Supervisor Silva seeking to be Senator Silva?

Dear Sir or Madame,

I went to an event over the weekend where I overheard two electeds conversing about the possibility of a Jim Silva candidacy for the 35th Senate District. Apparently, he's going around swishing the endorsement waters with his feet. He's trying to see what that race would look like.

I guess bankrupting Orange County with fee and pension increases isn't enough for the guy. The State is his oyster.

The Secretary of State's website has his COH at a little over $260 thou' which could make for a start on the Senate, but I think poses far more of a threat in a lower house race. Silva would spend a lot of it just trying to differentiate himself from the other liberal Republican in the race: Harman.

Thank you Cox. What a shake up this has been. What entertainment!

Virtue, Liberty, and Independence,
