Capitol Frog Jump Winners

Sacramento, CA – The Calaveras County Fair was in the spotlight Tuesday at the State Capitol in Sacramento.

27 frogs were entered in the 36th annual Capitol Frog Jump.

Secretary of State Debra Bowen’s “Tad-poll Worker” took first place in the Statewide Officers’ Category by jumping 8′ 10.” In the Legislative category, Assemblyman Jim Nielsen’s “Smooth Operator” leaped 8′ 8″ and KFBK’s Bob Moffitt’s “Gordon Jump” took back his championship trophy with a jump of 6′ 4″ in the Media/Public category.

Senator Dave Cox’s “No Tax Max” was a bit overtaxed himself this year, turning in an unenthusiastic 4′ 9″ jump. Cox was again the host of the event that is designed to promote the Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee.
