This individual ran for governor during the California special election as part of the 2003_California_recall (which ultimately resulted in the stated being terminated). Out of 8,000,000 votes, Georgina Russell received 2,000; this works out to be about %0.025 of the vote, if my math lessons serve me right. Are all people who run for public office noteworthy enough for inclusion on Wikipedia, regardless of the outcome? GRider\talk 17:24, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Keep also on cover of USA today INTERNATIONAL edition and National edition
Keep She got more than one article, try 100. Check out her website where you can see she was covered in Germany. She also was one of the first to throw her hat in the ring. And the recall wasn't a "minor" election, as InShaneee suggests.
Delete - some very minor candidates could be notable - for example, if they had a substantial impact on the race, or were otherwise unique in some way. The article presents absolutely no evidence that this was the case here. CDC(talk) 18:02, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)
More than 100 people ran for governor then. I think the major candidates, and those few who were already famous deserve articles, but gathering 65 signatures and paying $3500 does not make one notable. Nor does an interview at Slashdot (pay attention, Slashdot trolls). Delete. -R. fiend 18:24, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Keep. She was one of the few minor candidates to recieve media attention outside of California. --Carnildo 20:58, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Delete So now you don't even need to win a minor election to be noteworthy? --InShaneee 21:39, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Keep, and expand. Megan1967 23:58, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Comment. Being from California, every minor candidate was given at least one interview by a local paper, web site or TV station. Zzyzx11 01:38, 18 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Delete. Minor party candidates, and/or those with no chance of winning, must present other evidence of notability that is not given here. Meelar(talk) 02:36, Feb 18, 2005 (UTC)
Concur with Meelar. DeleteRadiant! 12:27, Feb 18, 2005 (UTC)
*Keep, media notable. JamesBurns 11:19, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Merge and redirect to 2003 California recall; it's mostly there already. If anything is broken out of the article (which is admittedly fairly long), it should be the list of candidates as a whole. —Korath (Talk) 14:12, Feb 28, 2005 (UTC)
Keep Over 16,000 google hits, on cover of major newspapers, appeared on nationwide networks (at the least NBC). After Arnold and Gray Davis she was the first, as far as I can tell, to join the race. This isn't some high schooler that is promoting herself and there is no precedent for deleting this. Review [Wikipedia is Not] and search for the bullet this falls under
