Let’s summarize before you read further: Nathan Hochman has a much better chance of winning than Eric Early.

So let’s start off with the Moderate versus Conservative issue. Today, Eric Early is claiming to be the conservative in the AG Race. I remember not long ago when Early was the Center-Left GOP Candidate in 2018 for AG when Stephen Bailey got the nod out of the primary.

When I was working for Steve Frank in 2021, Eric Early refused to commit to Mr. Frank and join conservatives seeking a voice at the State Party. Given that the CRA has been shunned and attacked by the CRP, I would ask the CRA delegates to at least ask some tough questions of Mr. Early before they endorse him this weekend. The CRA needs to endorse people who will stand for them as much as they do for the candidates.

I have no illusions that Hochman is a solid Republican but not a textbook conservatve. However, my experience with Mr. Early indicates that, in deed, he is not that Conservative either.

Then there is the $1.5 Million and counting that Hochman has. Early won’t have enough money to walk and chew gum simultaneously.

However, the most compelling part of Hochman is his resume. The man has fought criminals for his whole life. Given that he may be the most viable alternative to Rob Soros-Bonta, this has to be the primary consideration in choosing a candidate for California AG.

As a general counsel in private practice, Nathan has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s leading criminal justice defense and tax lawyers. For over two decades, Nathan has represented victims of crimes and defended the constitutional rights of individuals and organizations against governmental overreach.


In the midst of the global financial crisis of 2008, Nathan once again answered the call to service and was nominated by President George W. Bush to serve as an Assistant Attorney General of the United States overseeing the Department of Justice’s Tax Division.

After unanimous confirmation by the United States Senate, Nathan led a team of over 350 civil, criminal and appellate lawyers, bringing cases in all 50 states.

When he returned to California, Nathan continued to fight against corruption as a Commissioner and President of the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission, where he held city leaders accountable for their actions.


Working in the Criminal Division as an Assistant US Attorney, Nathan prosecuted over a hundred cases, from going after corrupt government officials and tax evaders to narcotics traffickers and violent gang members. Nathan also ran the Environmental Crimes Section targeting air, water, and land polluters.

In the 1990s, when California was ravaged by fires, floods, and a massive earthquake, Nathan formed and spearheaded the Los Angeles Disaster Fraud Task Force.  That Task Force went after financial predators who stole relief dollars intended for those most in need. Leading 15 federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, Nathan’s team, brought over 70 prosecutions and recovered millions of dollars for victims.

These are pulled from Mr. Hochman’s website. As Republicans, this should be what we are looking for in today’s world. Having read Early’s resume’ he has a long way to go to catch up to Mr. Hochman.

Eric Early is running for attorney general. The problem is that Early has no money and Nathan Hochman has sucked the oxygen out of the room.

Here you can see the announcement for Hochman passing $1Million raised. As of today, it is the understanding of this blogger that Hochman has $1.4 Million. It has been put to me that he will have $3 Million by Primary Election Day on June 7th.

Eric Early has gotten some Republican county party endorsements due to residual name ID and goodwill.

Eric Early could be a hero to the GOP by providing us with a good and credible option for Lt Governor. There is currently no viable Republican option in the LG race (in fact, there is no Republican at all and the 2018 LG Race was a D vs D runoff).

Ann-Marie Schubert is running for AG as an NPP. With both Early and Hochman in the race, there is a legitimate and significant chance that they split the vote enabling Schubert (an NPP) to make the runoff. This would be lampooned all over the media and used against the GOP in California should it happen.

I have written about Schubert a few times on this blog and I believe she is unfit for California Attorney General. It would be a shame to see non-communists forced to vote for her as the alternative to the Soros-leftist Rob Bonta.

So, here’s the play – let’s get ahold of Eric Early. He has a spot to land for a serious statewide campaign. Hochman should not be forced to spend a ton of money trying to make it out of the primary given how difficult it is for Republicans to raise money and the odds of the election.

Early has a contact form on his website.

Note the generic name on his website, it would take Mr. Early about 30 minutes to flip his online presence and his existing campaign accounts to make it happen.

I have often wondered why Eric Early decided to run for Attorney General, especially after Retired Judge Stephen Bailey got such a head start on him.

People throw the word RINO around so much it nearly has no meaning.

Once you are done reading about Eric Early, the word RINO will have meaning again.

In the article introducing Eric Early – he clearly indicates his path to victory is Moderate Republicans, Moderate Democrats and a portion of Hispanics. This means Conservatives need not apply.

Early goes on to proclaim himself Pro-Choice and Pro-Gay Marriage, yet somehow we are to believe that he is a fiscal conservative. I’ve never seen that combination work in a politician, why would Early be the first?

In the article, Early also indicates he is a “Former” democrat and acknowledges donating to democrats.

He is fond of pointing out that he voted for Trump, yet a check of his donations does not indicate a single red cent donated to Trump. If fact, on 11/2/2015 Eric Early maxed out to John Kasich for $2700. People know that Kasich has been on an ego-fueled rampage against the President since losing the primary, including a very public love fest featuring Arnold and Chad Mayes.

As your intrepid blogger researched Early’s public donations, we found several checks to the New Majority, a group of liberal Republican Donors famous for their attempts to primary challenge Conservative incumbents or for supporting democrats suddenly turned Republicans in the Primary. See the pattern?

Early’s financial largess included liberal Republicans like Shelly Moore Capito and David Hadley. Eric Early also donated $500 to Stefano De Stefano on 9/29/2017, a liberal Republican that attempted to primary challenge Ted Cruz. Ouch.

We have been told that the number one reason why we need to support Eric Early is that he is a major Republican Donor. Aside from $85,000 to himself and $13,000 (recently) to the New Majority I see a list of donations that would made even the most liberal Republican Party activist seriously reconsider their support for Early.

Let’s have a look at Eric Early’s Donations. $2500 to Jerry Brown! Ahem, were those “meal tickets”, too?

On 9/20/2009 Early donated $300 to Shelly Berkley, then a congresswoman – later the Democrat Challenger to Republican Senator Dean Heller in Nevada.

On 9/27/2011 Early donated $250 to Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth, a progressive hero who is now a US Senator from Illinois voting against President Trump 100% of the time.

On 6/5/2012 Eric Early donated $300 to Senator John Tester – he of the Smear Campaign against admiral Ronny Jackson that has since been eviscerated as a lie. Also, Tester referred to President Trump’s tax cuts as the “Biggest piece of Bullshit I’ve ever seen”.

On 7/30/2012 Eric Early donated $500 to progressive liberal Congressional Candidate Susan Bysiewicz in Connecticut. She is now their Secretary of State.

On 9/28/2014 Eric Early donated $500 twice to Extreme Left-Wing Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley who routinely repeats the “Russia Did It” lie in the national media.

If the above does not have you sufficiently upset, two of the largest benefactors of Eric Early’s largess are Ted Lieu and Brad Sherman. So more than one Republican Statewide candidate is listed as a donor to Brad Sherman – the first author of articles of impeachment against President Trump.

On 4/11/2014 – Eric Early donated $1000 to Ted Lieu
On 4/11/2014 – Eric Early donated $750 to Ted Lieu (the second check of the day)
On 9/28/2014 – Eric Early donated another $500 to Ted Lieu

Apparently, Early enjoys Ted Lieu’s status as the number one troll of the President on twitter as Lieu spouts off insane un-vetted conspiracies against our President.

But Brad Sherman? Eric Early is one of Sherman’s most reliable donors, read on…

10/28/2010 – $240
10/28/2010 – $100
10/30/2010 – $500
3/21/2012 – $1500
8/24/2012 – $500
10/14/2013 – $500
8/25/2015 – $1000
8/30/2016 – $500

Grand Total? $4,840.

When I have found Republican donations from Early, they have 100% been to liberal Republicans or the Presidential Nominee (exception – he donated nothing to President Trump at all). I do not believe that Republican Convention delegates can trust Eric Early as his long extensive record as a democrat donor, as recently a 18 months ago should give everyone pause. While Early attempts to make a big deal out of voting for Trump, his donations suggest that he is anything but a Trump supporter as those he supports are among the chief antagonists of Trump on the national scale.

Eric Early does not deserve the endorsement of any Republican group. I believe he has miscast himself as a Republican Candidate for Attorney General and at best should be running as a left-leaning independent.
