What do you get for dropping out of the City Attorney's Race?

Well, I guess if you are Republican William Gentry and you bow down to the right wing, you get appointed judge.

Isn't it amazing how the right wing works? They decided the wanted the field clear for Goldsmith, so they bribe Gentry out of the race with a judicial appointment.

I just wonder if Chula Vista City Councilman John Mcann feels a little cheated. When he was asked to bow out of the 78th for David Bejarano, he was just sent packing with his tail between his legs. Then, when Bejarano took a pass, the Republican establishment asked him to come back in as sloppy seconds. Maybe McCann should take a negotiating lesson from Gentry.

Maybe Brian M. will follow in the footsteps of Dick Murphy. Don't forget Dick left his city council seat in the late 1980's to become a superior court judge before eventually running for Mayor. Something tells me that Brian will drop out to become a judge too.

You have to hand it to the Reps in this town, because they sure know how to pay people off. The Dem party should call for an investigation into the appointment of this guy.

good luck. appointments are entirely at the governor's pleasure, right? Just the way it is... does it surprise you though with the Republicans?
