  1. As an Orange County resident and Derailer of the Fairgrounds Sale, I’m sticking with Hector De La Torre for Insurance Commissioner – just as good a candidate as Dave Jones, but he did a LOT of work helping to stop the sale, for someone who doesn’t even live here!

    Right, we got TOO MANY good people running for AG. Why does everyone want to do that? I’m going with Kamala.

  2. Apparently the Young Democrats are unaware of Tom Daly’s record of incredible incompetence, cronyism and waste.

    And of course that Lorri Galloway lives in the Third Supe District.

    Either that or they don’t care.

  3. these young democrats are exactly that young.

    infantile and generating a democratic party member exodus

    amongst other reasons for this trend

    1. Just in time,

      Remember when they endorsed Pulido over Michele Martinez in 2008? That was so odd. I mean, she IS a young Democrat…

  4. Ceci is young and has the new energy and respect for her future constituents and for this congressional seat.
    The incumbent simply reeks of decay and apathy.

  5. These younglings spend their spare time brown-nosing–why not just merge with the oc dems—I mean they are not representing anything different from them.

    and yes not endorsing the Young democrat in 08 was quite a shock.

    1. Just in time,

      I think it was Phil Bacerra’s fault. He attacked Martinez throughout 2008. Now there are rumors he is going to run against her in Ward 2. I hope he does. It will be great returning fire…

  6. Really??? Tom Daly??? Did they notice he quit the supervisor race? Why would they vote for a quitter?? That is the reason I wouldn’t vote for Palin. She quit her governorship when the going got tough. When the going got tough Tom Daly ran!!!! Dont endorse quitters!!!!!!
