Fresh off a victory in his run for the 16th Senate District seat, Andy Vidak said Friday on "First Look with Scott Cox" that he's ready to be sworn in and get to work.
The Republican and cherry farmer from Hanford won after Tuesday's election against Democrat Leticia Perez, a Kern County supervisor.
Simulcast host Scott Cox joked with Vidak, who called in to the show, asking if he's bought another suit; Vidak said he needs to do so.
"Take it from me you need two or three of these things," Cox said.
Cox noted Vidak will have to run for re-election to the new 14th Senate District in less than a year, and in that short time people may wonder how much he's accomplished.
"I'm just going to go to work," Vidak said. He also said, "Hopefully we get some common sense in there."
As Vidak has said before, he noted that water is a big issue for him and the 16th district, and a priority as he heads to office.
