I thought Matt Rahn was the RINO? But he got yoooooonyun money! But he was a democrat until 2014? But, but, but Kate Sanchez is the only (barf) True Conservative in the AD71 race!?

Whoops, Kate got $9800 from Kevin Spillaine. Here is Spillane in the LA Times attacking the CAGOP, because apparently the CAGOP leadership are not anti-trump enough.

But acclaim for the president didn’t resonate with all in attendance. Longtime GOP consultant and self-proclaimed “never-Trumper” Kevin Spillane joked that he was a “man with no country,” noting the sharp rise in new activists in the state party since 2016.

“These folks are excited and animated by Trump,” Spillane said, adding that while changes in the party have caused more moderate Republicans like himself to step back, he believes new leader Patterson “is doing her job, which as chairman of the California Republican Party is to support the Republican president and reflect the wishes of Republican activists.”

I have consistently been at odds with Spillane for years. He is pro-choice, supported Gay Marriage and has been known to consult for tax-increase measures. BONUS: He was an Arnold lackey too.

Spillane is apparently so liberal that he does not realize the party leadership are moderates, but when you celebrate every Trump-endorsed candidate who loses as well as re-tweeting Steve Schmidt (who is actually a democrat now, good riddance) your view of the world is polluted.

This is hardly the profile of a double max-out donor that a “True Conservative” would want. But hey, money talks, huh?

However as they say on TV, BUT WAIT! There’s MOOOOOORE!!!

Frances Barraza! She is one of my favorite flaming leftist Republicans. She is a full portfolio Trump-Hater, establishment liberal and SHE WORKED FOR KEVIN FAULCONER!

On his behalf, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s campaign manager Francis Barraza replied in short order as follows:

Hi Gene,

Here’s a quote from the Mayor.

“I am not endorsing Mr. Trump. I reject his divisive rhetoric, including that toward women and Latinos. We need to be building bridges and bringing people together. That’s how we do things in San Diego. Mr. Trump has not earned my vote.”

Thank you, FB

Are you seeing a trend?

And there is Grow Elect – run by trump haters and the squishy Moises Merino on the list too!

Moises is the founder of the Latino Leadership & Policy Forum and GROW Elect, an organization that has recruited, trained, and elected over 200 Latinos to public office. He has served as political director and advisor on a number of high profile campaigns, including Meg Whitman for Governor, John McCain for President, Arnold Schwarzenegger for Governor, and George W. Bush for President.

What a pedigree!!!

Steve is a candidate for School Board.

So if you are curious what the OCGOP was smoking when they endorsed this disaster, it is simple – a bag of dog waste would have been endorsed for AD71 if it was from Orange County. AD71 is 45% Orange and 55% Riverside and that xenophobia and provincialism will be a central theme in the race.

Even with the RINO patrol on her campaign report she raised a whopping… $53,000 year to date. Ouch.

Trump hating squishes vs yooooooonyuns. The Yoooonyuns are probably more conservative than the Kate Sanchez donor list with few exceptions.

Matt Rahn Earns Endorsements Of Mimi Walters and Diane Dixon

ORANGE COUNTY, CA — Today, Matt Rahn announced endorsements from former U.S. Representative Mimi Walters and Newport Beach City Councilmember Diane Dixon who is also the Republican nominee for the neighboring Orange County 72nd Assembly District. As U.S. Representative, Mimi Walters represented portions of the new 71st Assembly District.

“I’ve represented the Orange County communities of the 71st District and I know Matt Rahn is the most qualified Republican to represent Orange County’s local values in the State Assembly. Matt isn’t just talk, he has a conservative voting record on the city council to back it up. I’m proud to support an accomplished conservative like Matt Rahn,” said former U.S. Representative Mimi Walters.

Republican Diane Dixon, the Republican nominee for the 72nd Assembly District added, “We need more conservative voices like Matt Rahn in Sacramento. As a local councilman and Mayor, Matt has saved local taxpayers millions of dollars, that’s the type of leader we need in Sacramento fighting on behalf of California taxpayers. I need Matt to join me in Sacramento so we can bring relief to Orange County’s taxpayers and families.”

Matt Rahn, the top vote-getter in the Primary Election is widely considered the frontrunner to win the new 71st Assembly District in November. Former U.S. Representative Mimi Walters and Newport Beach Councilmember Diane Dixon join Republicans across the District and California in supporting Matt Rahn, including notable leaders such as Congressman Darrell Issa, Congressman Ken Calvert, Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher, former Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron.

Tick Tock Kate.

Kate Sanchez lied. Darrell Issa is not dual endorsing, endorsing her or even giving her the right time of day. She made these absurd claims in a vain attempt to deceive the OCGOP into endorsing her. 

Darrell Issa knows what the rest of us do – Kate Sanchez is a stalking horse candidate who has 10 donors and a resume as thin as almond milk. Worse for Sanchez, Issa knows her better than many as Sanchez lasted just a few months in his office as an intern. I am sure there is a story there as well. Anyone with information email aaron@rightondaily.com you can remain anonymous.

Faster than I can gag on Avocado Toast, it looks like the hounds are coming for Sanchez. It’s party time in AD71.

It would be really fun and simple to think that Jessica Patterson, David Stafford Reade, et al put Guerra and Brown up to this.

I was informed that Dan Brown was a key booster of Jason Empty Hat Paletta, he of the coup attempt against the Placer GOP and the man who is anti-everything now that his quest for office was vanquished. Brown was making calls and attempting to wield influence on behalf of Paletta.

Then, later we received this. Michelle Guerra sent out an invitation to a film called “Rigged”. Sounds Good, huh? I mean Donald Trump was robbed, right?

Wait a minute – this is a different kind of “Rigged”.

So, last week the Solano GOP had a free screening of a far-left movie about attempts to suppress the black vote. This farcical lie is pushed by the Left to argue against any true election security measures. Did Michelle even understand the movie she was supporting?

So now, we have some further evidence that both suffer from impaired judgement. Why would team Jessica even bother with these two? #FACEPALM

Jul 182022

First of all, the General Election is in 3 1/2 months. The CAGOP Officer elections are not until March of 2023. Question one – why so early?

Secondly, I have been getting conflicting reports about Dan Brown’s allegiance to conservatives for years and Michelle Guerra has established her self-serving pattern. She stabbed conservatives in the back and was rewarded with Choice Committee assignments by her majesty after twice betraying the conservative opponent to Jessica Patterson.

Therefore, any reasonable person would look at this email sent by Dan Brown and Michelle Guerra to a handful of county chairs and ask what the hell is going on. Several of the most staunch conservative chairs were not on the list, but stone-cold Patterson loyalist Cathy Kneer made the list. (You will recall the establishment drill that was run to elect her in Shasta County and then they filled the empty committee slots with moderates and donors)

I can only assume that Fred, Mark and Randall were put on the email in order to attempt to lasso conservatives to co-opt the movement early before the opposition organizes against the Oligarchy of Controlled Failure.

Have these two have gone on a complete ego rampage thinking they can gain election to major CAGOP office, thus betraying Jessica Patterson? Or, have they been dispatched to engage in this operation to disrupt the opposition to the Oligarchy of Controlled Failure?

Another context clue is point three. True leaders do not talk in terms of controlling people, that is what the establishment does.

The syntax of this email also suggests that these two are attempting to mimic the messaging and organizing of the previous two Chairman campaigns against Jessica Patterson.

Given the pattern of these two – I am open to the more conspiratorial suggestion that David Reade / Andy Gimmecandy put them up to this. One major consideration is that Dan and Michelle would lose their plum committee assignments. However, I can not discount their pattern and the potential for a double-cross of Reade/Gimmecandy/Jessica and crew.

The last thing to mention is if this is indeed a hubris-fueled drill, will the establishment just laugh at them or will they retaliate against them? (Or both?)

Ever wonder why the CAGOP can’t walk and chew gum? The people in charge have failed miserably as the CAGOP loses market share and the opposition is full of people that pull stunts like this.
