Saturday Morning Political Headlines: Horner’s replacement, and more text trouble

In Uncategorized on September 29, 2012 at 2:50 pm

A very active Saturday.

We’ve got a story on the search for Mike Horner’s replacement. Last week Horner was named in a criminal investigation and chose to drop out of his re-election campaign. Now, the local GOP has to find a replacement candidate to take on Eileen Game, who has gone from an longshot to a favorite in the race for that state house seat.

We’ve also got more drama with text messages and the Orange County Commission. Those stories lead your Saturday morning political headlines.
