We did it!


California is super slow in counting votes, so it’s taken a week to declare a victory. As of this writing I have 10,759 votes, a new record for the ASP in a statewide election—and there’s still almost a quarter of the vote yet to count! We should also blow past the so-called Raffensperger Line: “I just want to find, uh, 11,780 votes.”
We could not have done this without your generous support. I thank all of you who contributed to the campaign, all of you who mentioned me to your family and friends and co-workers, all of you who gathered signatures to get my name on the ballot, and of course all of you who voted for me. I was humbled every time I received notice that someone else had shared their hard-earned money in the name of solidarity.
But this election is only one stop in a journey to promote the common good in California. There will be another governor’s race in June, 2026, and whoever that candidate is, they will need all the support you have given me, plus a whole lot more. I pray you will all be as generous and kind to that person as you have been to me.
In Solidarity,
Mark Ruzon
Former U.S. Senate Candidate
