STATE SENATE | DISTRICT 7 | A new campaign commercial from Seventh State Senate District candidate Susan Bonilla features cameos from reitred Rep. George Miller and Contra Costa District Attorney Mark Peterson. It also hints that Bonilla’s campaign views her opponent, Orinda Mayor Steve Glazer, also a Democrat, and his centrist platform as a great strength.

“Susan Bonilla is true to her word and her actions and that’s why Democrats and Republican, local businesses, law enforcement…and thousands more support Susan Bonilla,” says the ad, with Miller delivering the word “Democrat” and Peterson uttering “Republican.”

Although the Seventh District is hardly a bastion of progressive thought, the play for moderate Repubicans is quite a jarring coalition for the large number of volunteers from labor unions currently stumping for Bonilla.

The commercial debuts today and will run through the May 19 special election.
