eurospaceFrom Jose Hernandez's mailing list to supporters:
We did it!

Even a California Superior Court Judge agrees, I am an astronaut!

Jeff Denham's despicable attempt to distract you from the real campaign failed miserably.

It's absurd that they attacked me for telling Californians that I'm an astronaut! I was honored to fly on the Discovery Space Shuttle to the International Space Station, it’s one of my greatest memories.

I grew up working the fields in the San Joaquin Valley. I reached for the stars. And, I achieved my dream. I flew in space. I lived the American Dream.

And, today, that American Dream is under assault. It's under assault from people like Jeff Denham who are so desperate to win that they will attack and smear my life story...

Thank you so much for believing in me. Together, we will not only prove that I am an astronaut, we will prove that the American Dream is alive and well.

Astronaut Jose Hernandez loses to farmer in congressional race

California voters on Tuesday (Nov. 6) scrubbed the congressional launch of former astronaut Jose Hernandez, who had been seeking a new mission in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Hernandez, who would have been the sixth U.S. astronaut in history to be elected to Congress, was passed over by voters in California's 10th District, who elected Republican freshman incumbent Jeff Denham, an almond farmer and Air Force veteran, instead.

Hernandez received 46.2 percent of the votes.
