Pictured, Heather Hadwick in Dorris, CA parade on 7-4-2024. Two Days Later She was in Alturas, CA (7-6-2024). The prior week featured events in Central Siskiyou and Shasta County.

Tenessa Audette was at at least two events outside of AD-01 in the same timeframe, including the fireworks show in Rocklin.

The battle lines are drawn in AD-01. It is going to get uber nasty in the fall, make bank on it. Dave Gilliard who is Tenessa’s Campaign Consultant is ruthless and has a history of over the top attacks, especially when he sees momentum shifting. Gilliard also has a ton of clients in the North State as well, because he is one of the better at this game on the R side in California.

There has already been a whisper campaign being promoted among the ranks of a prominent Northern California Politician, by his staff and other acolytes. The rumor is false, but originated with a deranged officeholder long affiliated with said politician. At the end of the day these people are doing it because of long standing resentments over Brian Dahle defeating the political establishment over a decade ago to gain his first election to AD-01. At a time of my choosing, I will name names and provide specific details if necessary. These sorts of things are common in local politics and the North State with all the small towns (except for the crime riddled City of Redding) may as well be a giant local election arena.

Heather has met with and secured the endorsements of several in the logging/timber industry, while Tenessa Audette has been fighting one drama-filled Redding Council Meeting (while the city burns with crime) after another.

The best most recent endorsement Tenessa secured was a group controlled by long time friends and people associated with Dave Gilliard.

The bulk of Tenessa’s endorsements have been from Republican Groups whose memberships are peppered with people who hate Brian and Megan Dahle. Several never bothered to interview Hadwick. As I track the public appearances of both candidates I note that most of Tenessa’s announced events are with those or similar groups.

Another common thread is beyond the irrational hatred of Brian and Megan Dahle, is the “Heather is not showing up to anything”. That sentence should be re-stated as follows, “Groups who have endorsed Tenessa are complaining that Heather is not going to their events”.

So while Tenessa was at some Patriot Group in Yreka, Heather had a meetings with stakeholders inside AD-01 and was in Alturas for a parade. (see the above comments about Loggers)

These are two radically different approaches from two Radically different candidates.

Heather is a Rancher that lives in Alturas. Heather grew up in Siskiyou County. Tenessa grew up outside of AD01 (think bigger city California), and her carefully crafted biography omits that fact. Heather’s Son is a skilled marksman and Heather has been part of the NRA for years. It is debatable if Audette even owns a gun.

In the coming week, Heather will be at more events inside AD01 and meeting with more stakeholders inside AD01 and Tenessa Audette will be at the RNC Convention off the campaign trail. Tenessa promotes her delegate status to the CAGOP on her website. Welcome to the party Tenessa, I was a CAGOP delegate for 20 years and never once used it to promote myself.

This fall, you will find out which strategy works better – meeting with stakeholders inside of AD01, meeting with disparate groups inside of AD01 or spending the bulk of your time with Republican Party types sometimes relying on them spreading rumors to advance you. Having been a Republican Party Type for years, (see also 20 years around Cent Coms, 15 years as an officer in the CRA, etc.) I can tell you that I agree with Heather’s approach more.

There will be more endorsements coming soon for Heather. These will be beyond the Ag Commissioners, Loggers and Mark Mezzano endorsements of the recent weeks.

  1. I hate it when I don’t hear the rumors. I am hanging out with the wrong Republican gossips.

  2. Question:

    What’s up with Tom McClintock lately?

    (asking for a friend)

  3. And, if you haven’t heard: the DON has insisted on some RNC changes to our party platform.
    Any opinions on that yet?.

  4. It’s MAGA or go home if you want to be elected.

  5. Aaron Melidy, Aaron Melody……………..hmmm.
    Same person.

    All 97 of her delegates will go towards TRUMP.

    Meanwhile, the Biden debacle continues. No matter what is done, he’s toast. The campaign is BS, their covering for him is BS, and no matter WHO talks on his behalf, it’s BS.

    AUGUST—–1st Round Biden. 2nd round—contested Convention. WHO will be the nominee for the DEMO’s?? Speculation is Michelle Obama……Rumors suggest someone from Illinois (see DOLTON for political updates on THAT fiasco)….long odds? Hilary……short odds, Newsome………..unlikely favored? Harris.
    End results? Trump wins.

    Next Debate scheduled for SEPT 10th. Unless there is an ABSOLUTE reason (and there isn’t that I can think of) Trump shouldn’t debate.
    Predictions IF BIDEN wins. :
    Hamas doesn’t surrender; Hezbullah opens up a second front; Iran/Yemanese direct more attacks into the Straight of Hormuz; Russian socks it to Ukraine; China gets bold in the South China Sea and the Philippines, continuing to test our resolve.

    But that’s just me………

    Oh……..FYI for anyone who gives a rats? The interview with Mr Charlee Simons went from 30 to 55 minutes in length, He’s in, tho not yet 100% comitted….about 90%……….Freedom Riders1776 invited me to speak on 13 JULY 2024………..

    I’m working on releasing a Republican’s Response to Mr Gavins State of the State address before end of month….and may also consider doing a re-release of my candidacy announcement. Lastly, Mrs Sue Frost’s husband is an interesting person and could be supportive (we had a GREAT talk about my running chances)…but they’re both leaving California by JAN 2025. (shame, and I told them so)

    I hope to earn Ms Frost’s AND her husband’s support by end of month.

    Moving right along………………..

  6. Ever heard of typos Lynyrd?

    Can you provide a link for the Charlee Simons interview? He did such a good job for MAGA at KAHI radio that they fired him.

    It’s MAGA or bust for America!

  7. I have to admit that Lynyrd interviews well. Next step is vetting him. The time just might be right for an outsider in CA…

    But you know that we have to get rid of the machines in our election system before he has any chance. Call your County Elections and demand they take a stand and exercise their autonomy as a County. Just like school boards, County government has more autonomy than they want you to know. They have either forgotten how to use it, or are KNOWINGLY AND WILLFULLY (like school boards during COVID) committing a dereliction of duty to the citizenry. They all know.

  8. Meanwhile, while we all bloviate on issues not related to the post. Congressman John Garamendi has been diagnosed with a type of blood cancer and beginning treatment…(according to NewsTalk KFBK)

  9. Chuck is a policeman now. Nice try. It’s all germaine in an open blog comment section.

    It’s just another thinly veiled smear piece on Janessa anyway.

  10. here is a little off topic banter/item:

    California Political Review wrote an article about Chad Bianco……funny, you can’t post remarks onto it. It simply says when you try to comment: COMMENT IS SPAM. Funny, because I didn’t even fill out the form completely. Says the same thing when I DO complete the commentary form as well. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, ….censorship? Forcing a conversation about ol Chad with zero dissent? Ok……doesn’t look good.

    as to THIS topic…….

    Heather v Audette (this for MY purposes) interesting.
    From what I gather, Heather holds a slight lead from last polling vs Audette, about 5.5%.
    If Ms. Hunt tosses in for Audette, Heather loses, so long as Mezzano stays out of it.
    Question is, WHO will voters for Mezzano run to? He held 25.5% of voters. That number tossed into a contested race swings either way. If they split? Heather still wins by 5%.
    On the people’s topic of CASH:
    Heather————> MINUS $13,000
    Audette————> PLUS $10,000
    So, in a SOLID Republican area (so it seems) you are relying on one man’s voters, to swing your way. If he stands down, you’re relying on HUNT to swing your way. Either way, they command a 35% hold of voters. Seems like about 250K are eligible to vote, but barely 175K are voting. Hmmmmm……vexing.
    Barring outside (underhanded) influences, Heather should win by about 3-4%…unless her negative income hurts her. Mezzano HAS to commit to Heather, or it’s either a messy tie or embarrassing loss. The author seems to be on Heathers side. Hmmmm…….
    I wonder what the “smart” people are thinking of this right now……..

    On another note: Congressional District 6 Candidates.
    Berra cash on hand—> PLUS $160,000
    Bisch cash on hand—> PLUS $2,000
    It’s four months left. What was the explanation again?

    For GOV’s race: Kounalakis———> upwards of $9m
    Republicans—————————–> No official challengers
