Democrat Ken Cooley’s big bucks and political games don’t help him in Statewide Primary Election
Folsom, CA – – The last report from the Sacramento County elections office has set the stage for a competitive run-off election between Folsom Republican Josh Hoover and Democrat Assemblyman Ken Cooley. Josh Hoover bested three other Republicans with a commanding 34% of the vote.
On the other hand, Cooley finished slightly over 50%, a disappointing number considering the resources he expended in the primary.

Ken Cooley and the Democrat Party invested hundreds of thousands of dollars promoting expelled Republican Jeffrey Perrine, Ken Cooley’s preferred run-off candidate, who only managed to garner slightly more than 6,000 votes districtwide. A clearly embarrassing number for Ken Cooley to attach himself to the Perrine campaign.
Below is a flashback of Jeffrey Perrine gloating about Ken Cooley and the Democrats investing $190,000 in his campaign.
The run-off election for the 7th Assembly District will be held in conjunction with the November Statewide General Election.
