Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Republican Attempt To Remove "Astronaut" from CA-10 Congressional Candidate Jose Hernandez's Description in June Primary Ballot


The lawsuit filed by Republican attorneys to prevent congressional candidate Jose Hernandez from listing "astronaut" as part of his job description in the June primary ballot is desperate, shameless and utterly without merit.
 
What is it about Mr. Hernandez's life story that the California GOP is so afraid of? His story embodies the American Dream, having gone from picking crops in the fields of the Central Valley to being an astronaut aboard the shuttle Discovery.
 
Clearly, California's Republican establishment is worried about incumbent Jeff Denham's prospects and is seeking to besmirch an American hero.
