Angelica Amezcua, a kindergarten teacher, has won the Santa Ana City Council election for the Ward 3 seat.

People like Molly Munger spent tens of millions of dollars on their campaigns, but money doesn’t always have to drive politics.

In a local race in Santa Ana, a city council seat wasn’t won by someone with tons of campaign cash and publicity, but just $200 and a handful of signs.

Elementary school teacher Angelica Amezcua took the lead in a six-way race, and she explains how her shoe-string campaign ended up on top.
