Chu’s Zooming Chu? Judy Chu v. Betty Chu

May 21st, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Democratic candidate and AOTW Judy Chu was the top vote-getter Tuesday in the race for the 32nd Congressional District seat vacated by Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, winning 32.5% of the vote. But because she didn’t receive a 50% majority, she’ll face off with Republican Betty Chu, who got 10% of the vote, and some Libertarian dude who’ll be a non-factor, in a July runoff.

Judy Chu v. Betty Chu

The drrrama factor of Chu v. Chu is amped by the fact that Judy and Betty are related by marriage (Betty is married to Judy’s first cousin). And they hate each other! Especially after this election, during which Judy’s campaign accused Betty of trying to coattail on Judy’s name–Judy is the more well-known of the two–and of changing her Chinese name characters, which were printed on the ballot, to more closely resemble Judy’s (Mistasian Identity, Betty…that’s some dirty pool!). To which Betty–who, at 72, is 17 years Judy’s senior–replied, “Believe me, my name has been around a lot longer than hers. I was born with that name.”

BITCHFIGHT!!!

Well, not really, given that the 32nd Congressional District is mostly Latino, strongly Democratic, and expected to go to Judy, but can you blame us for dreaming?
