CRAFTwork

According to yesterday’s Sacramento Bee and the LA Times the day before, a group of GOP honchos with money to burn have created California Republicans Aligned for Tomorrow (CRAFT) whose purpose is to find “candidates that can win elections” to quote Pete Wilson.

I cite this because Larry Dodge, who offered to help dig the CRP out of the financial mess San Diego’s own Ron Nehring has presided over, is a founding member of CRAFT.

Citing “a lack of professional management” at the California Republican Party, he is tuning over his money to this new group which will find and run candidates for statewide office.

I would call it a duplication of efforts, but if the CRA keeps hiring illegals and spending it’s political capital on whining about the Governor’s lack of support, I think CRAFT may have an opening.

It remains to be seen if such a body can find candidates “slick” enough to pass through their own party’s gauntlets at the primary level.

Either way, it looks like another big no confidence vote in the leadership Ron Nehring has brought to the state GOP,

I take it the "Arnold" model of candidates isn't working.

All this talk distracts us from the real issues! Mike Aguirre must win reelection. If not this city will fall into the pit of corruption. We need Mike to stay in office!

Why? So he can do like Ron and destroy organizations for no other reason than ego? No thanks.

Come to think of it, Mike's mismanagement of his own staff is similar to Ron's mismanagement. Does Mike hire illegals as well?

What does this post have to do with Marti, April?

I think the Marti, Mike, and Lumpkin posts are from Reps trying to throw this thread off-course because the original post has hit too close to home for them.

anonymous, how do you tie me and my comments to the Rep's?????? I'm asking people to give money to a Dem. Your assertion is void of thought.

Wow, your really insightful Socrates. You are just a few days behind every major media outlet in the country. I wouldn't worry about Republicans trying to throw your "thread" off course, you do so in your own reporting.

But now i'll ask a question that you don't want to answer...Where's Marti?

What do you think Marti's margin of victory will be? Lets get your guess on the record...
