Veteran political consultant George Gorton, the subject of the fascinating and award-winning profile that my esteemed colleagues Andrew Donohue and Kelly Bennett wrote earlier this year, stopped into Election Central to watch the tallies and rub elbows.
“In my lifetime, this is the most interest I’ve ever seen,” Gorton said, later adding, “My own son turned 18 and for years we’ve wanted to get young voters interested — now he’s really excited about voting.”
But it wasn’t all sunshine for the political legend: Gorton also lamented the “incompetence” of the California secretary of state as the election results slowly trickled in.
