Several interesting questions arise from the controversy over Tan Nguyen's clumsy (at best) letter to foreign-born Latino voters questioning their right to vote. One is the impact on his own race - does the letter's backlash raise Latino turnout or is there a backlash-to-the-backlash resulting in exposure he never dreamed of (John&Ken, etc.) and an increased volunteer and voter base from anti-illegal immigration activists.
Another good question is the impact all this has on the Daucher-Correa race in central county. Will more Latinos vote, and vote for Democrats? Do more Vietnamese turn out and vote Republican, which they tend to do?
My curiosity tonight is what impacts the TAN Nguyen controversy has on OTHER Vietnamese candidates this year, especially the ones named "Nguyen." There are no less than SEVEN other candidates named Nguyen on the ballot in the Garden Grove area. Will Latinos vote against ALL of them (they are all Republican)? Will some Anglos vote against all of them out of disgust for Tan Nguyen's tactics and confusion over which Nguyen is which?
