Patty Hughes: Congressional Candidate Jose Hernandez Wins in Court! “Astronaut” Ballot Designation Stands!

Congressional Candidate "Astronaut" Jose Hernandez has won the right to use "astronaut/scientist/engineer" as his ballot designation in his run for Congressional District 10, in the heart of California's Central Valley.

JOSE HERNANDEZ STATEMENT ON COURT VICTORY
Statement from Congressional Candidate Jose Hernandez in response to his victory in court defending a lawsuit challenging the validity of his stated occupation of Astronaut/Scientist/Engineer on the California ballot:
“I was never in doubt that I would be able to use Astronaut on my ballot.  From the age of nine it was a dream for me to go into Space and I look forward to trying to help others from the Central Valley reach for their dreams as well.  I am glad that common sense prevailed and we were able to defeat this lawsuit and get back to talking about real issues.”
