How are FReepers voting this coming Primary?
My ballot shows a bunch of R's I've never heard of:
SEC'Y OF STATE
STATE BOARD OF EQUALIZATION
None of these people are running in Alabama. ; )
I think I voted for Donnelly for Governor, but it doesn’t matter. They ALL stink.
I’m stuck between Neil and Tom for gubnor.
What difference does it make? None of them will get elected.
Shows what a great job the Republican Party in California is doing eh. Never heard of any of these people, and we are supposed to vote for one or the other.
No wonder this STATE is in such a state.
Uh, me too!
Nobody really worth a hoot here and the Dims will win everything. The CA GOP is worse than dead.
Bumpety....I be just as curious.
I voted for Robert Newman, No Party Preference because he declared: “I am pro-God, pro-life, pro family.”
Lt Gov, Ron Nehring, assuming he’s conservative, as I couldn’t vote for the others.
SecState, Roy Allmond because he quoted the end of the Declaration of Independence.
Controller, David Evans, as the only one anywhere near a conservative.
Atty Gen, John Haggerty, because his statement appeared to me to be more coherent and focused than Orly Taitz, who’s also running.
I can’t go on....
The two leaders for Gov are TIM Donnelly and Neel Kashkari.
Donnelly is a conservative and by far the best choice. He is in the Assembly and has pushed back against the Dems hard. Further, he should win since he is leading in the polls.
Kashkari’s only claim to fame is that he headed the TARP program under W, which I think is a disgrace. He has never held elected office and is an official dyed-in-the wool RINO. He admits that he voted for Obama in 2008.
Unfortunately, the GOP establishment is spending millions on Kashkari and he is coming up in the polls. He is backed by RINOs such as Pete Wilson, Darryl Issa and Charlie Munger. Just like in the other primaries around the country this year, Kashkari, the RINO, is putting up tons of ads saying he is a true conservatives and the low info voters are apparently buying it. Donnelly does not have enough money to go on TV in the huge media markets like LA so he is relying on grass roots support.
Let’s face it, no Republican has a decent chance to beat Moonbeam in the general election. But with Donnelly at the head of the ticket we might be able to get more conservatives to vote to keep the RATS from getting a 2/3 super-majority in one of the houses of the legislature. This is critical to keep the RATS from putting up ballot initiatives to gut Prop 13 and raise taxes to pay for the government employees’ pensions. Once there, the unions will spend hundreds of millions in ads and they have a scary chance of passing.
