Note: This entry is part of a series of recorded interviews with non-judicial candidates in contested Democratic primaries. I am also doing written Q&As with judicial candidates.
I don't really have to give an introduction to Rick Noriega, or an accounting of why I support Rick Noriega, or to note Rick's crossover appeal, do I? Suffice it to say I was glad when he announced, I'm glad he's running now, and I expect to be glad to be on his side when Election Day arrives. But of course, before we get the chance to vote for Rick Noriega in November, we have to get him on the ballot in March, and that means making sure he can beat back the name-recognition nihilism of Gene "the Undead Dancer" Kelly. When you vote in this primary, please cast that vote for Rick Noriega, and please encourage your friends to do so as well. This is the first step of that thousand-mile journey, so let's do it right.
The interview is here. As with most of these other candidates, I expect to do a followup later in the campaign.
