Dahle clobbers Bosetti in assembly race
Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012 — Way back in 1964 the Beatles pitifully wailed, “Money can’t buy me love” — and, at least this time, it apparently can’t buy you a seat in the state house either.
Don’t look now, but a Lassen County farmer easily prevailed over a former big league baseball player, mayor and Redding City Councilmember supported by a $300,000 totally discredited 11th-hour radio and mail advertising campaign funded by a political action committee in the contentious race for a seat in the state assembly.
Lassen County District 4 Supervisor Brian Dahle handily defeated Rick Bosetti in the Tuesday, Nov. 6 election for the District 1 Assembly seat. This election marked the first time two Republicans challenged each other for the seat under new rules that pit the top two vote-getters in the primary election against each other in the general election.
Dahle thanked his supporters from Lassen County who voted overwhelmingly for him. Dahle collected 6,236 votes in Lassen County (77.48 percent) to Boestti’s 1,813 (22.52 percent).
District wide, the numbers were nearly as high — with Dahle garnering 83,557 votes (64.5 percent) to Bosetti’s 45,919 votes (35.5 percent).
Dahle said the real work begins now as he prepares to go to Sacramento to reduce government regulations that stifle business, to help create more jobs and balance the budget.
