Nguyen issues victory statement for first-place finish in District 10 California Assembly primary race

With final tallies released this afternoon by the Sacramento County Voters Registration and Elections, Democratic Elk Grove City Councilmember Stephanie Nguyen declared her first-place finish in the highly competitive District 10 California Assembly race. 

Although in a statistical tie of 29 percent each with Democratic Sacramento County City Councilmember Eric Guerra, Nguyen took first place with 26,652 votes to Guerra's 26,193 for a margin of 459. 

After the results were finalized, Nguyen issued a statement thanking her supporters. She also noted the special interest money spent against her in the primary campaign.

"Special interest groups spent over one million to defeat our campaign and to push us out of the top two, but they failed, and we came in first place," Nguyen said in the statement. "They failed because voters recognize that I've spent my entire life uplifting our community."

In particular, Nguyen was targeted by the California Association of Realtors. The group sent out several mailers questioning Nguyen's Democratic credentials and sought to bolster Republican Eric Rigard's candidacy.

Even though Guerra and Nguyen are both Democrats, under California's top-two finisher election rules, both will advance to the November General Election. The third-place finisher was the late Republican Eric Rigard, who earned 27 percent of the total with 24,293 votes.
