In his 2006 bid for the U.S. Senate, Aptos resident Connor Vlakancic placed last in a field of 1o candidates.
Santa Clara County was a hotbed of support, delivering six votes for the self-described technologist with the slogan, “Elect none of the above.” “I believe I can get elected this year,” Vlakancic said. “I believe I should be elected. But I won’t pretend that I will get elected. … I’m showing the two-party system needs to go.”
