In a stunning turn of events, just days before the California primary, Sheriff Gore appears to have embellished his FBI exploits. Statements like “I stormed hijacked planes, I did all that stuff,” could have been exaggerated and needs further explanation.
The emotional aspects of the San Diego County Sheriff’s race may have caused Gore, the current appointed caretaker of the Sheriff’s office, to misspeak or embellish his background as an agent with the FBI.
Remember, we have invited all candidates and consultants to forward their mail PDFs and video or audio advertising clips to us at email@example.com. We will share them all here. Below is a plethora from Jay La Suer for Sheriff (Gore and Duffy are invited to send us what they would like as well)…

You can’t find an intersection in San Diego that isn’t plastered with the name of at least one of the three candidates for the office of Sheriff. The attention given to this race is not surprising since there is no elected incumbent for the highest law enforcement position in the county.
We’ve seen some unusual twists and turns with some interesting endorsements over the last two years. The latest twist is an anti-endorsement, for lack of a better term. A notice has been issued from the lobbying arm of the National Rifle Association, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) authored by Executive Director Chris Cox. The alert does not endorse one candidate over another; rather it implores San Diego voters to “Vote Against Appointed Sheriff Gore!”
From 10News, in case you missed it…
“…in the new poll released Tuesday, Gore had 26 percent of the vote — up 12 points from November … showed former Undersheriff and Assemblyman Jay La Suer at 16 percent, which was unchanged from November. Sheriff’s Lieutenant Jim Duffy, who led the race in November, is at 15 percent — down nine percent.”
- 10News calls this lead by Gore “substantial.” Ten points with margins of error and nearly forty percent undecided is substantial? Funny.
SD Rostra invited the Republican candidates competing in the 36th State Senate District race (succeeding Dennis Hollingsworth) to submit a guest column. The commentaries have been posted in the order received prior to the deadline. Candidate submissions received after the original postings will be added as they come in, but in no case will any additional columns be added if they are written as rebuttals to the initially posted commentaries.

Jeff Stone – A Strong Record of Public Safety for the 36th Senate District
The recent tragedies in San Diego County have shed new light on our parole system and the risks to our children. Citizens are demanding that the system be evaluated, fixed, and overhauled, so that the protection of our children remains the top priority and is never compromised in the policies, procedures, and safeguards put in place. The desire to shrink prison populations along with the pressure of decreased funding in the parolee administration system is at odds with the goal of ensuring that convicted sexual predators can never commit another heinous crime.

Registrar of Voters officially rejects Jim Duffy’s bid to be called “Sheriff’s Lt.” on ballot as he tries to unseat Sheriff Bill Gore.
My sources confirm that is the case, although the letter has not gone from the ROV to Duffy as of yet.

From today’s Sunday San Diego at the FlashReport…
The first competitive San Diego County Sheriff’s race since 1994 enters its primary leg with three hopefuls to appear on the ballot. As well, a challenge has been filed over one candidate’s chosen ballot description.
The pool of anticipated competitors narrowed from four on Friday, when perennial candidate Bruce Ruff dropped his bid in passive fashion, simply not filing any nominating paperwork by the deadline after he campaigned for several months.
The three remaining candidates each have law enforcement experience. Obviously, they want to tout their respective backgrounds. Thus, their chosen ballot designations…
Unless Bruce Ruff plans on walking into the Registrar of Voters, paying his filing fee, taking out his nomination form, and returning with 20 signatures in the next half-hour, he’s out.
Let’s put it this way. He’s out.
For a guy whose campaign kept promising information that would blow the top off the race, Ruff’s campaign ends rather quietly.
It makes things just a little less lively, not having Ruff as the campaign side show.
Count Jim Duffy, Bill Gore, and Jay La Suer left standing.
That said, it’s still significantly early. Name ID can be softened just as significantly with financial resources and momentum. Appointed Sheriff Bill Gore and former Assemblyman Jay La Suer have plenty of time to pick up both. Alternatively, Jim Duffy has the same amount of time to try to translate left-over name ID into something that heads off a closing pack.
KCBQ AM-1170 and Washington Times Radio Talk Show Host Rick Amato recently weighed in on a sheriff’s candidate debate held September 12 in El Cajon….
On Saturday, I had the opportunity to sponsor and co-moderate a debate among the San Diego County Sheriff candidates. It followed the East County TEA Party, where an estimated 1500 people attended. Questions were made available for the audience to ask of the candidates. All four candidates participated.
It was a loud, engaged audience with plenty of sparks flying among the candidates themselves. Here are my observations from the debate.
