Republican Party Chairman Tony Krvaric has taken a keen interest in who is communicating for Nathan Fletcher.
On Thursday, Krvaric tweeted to Rachel Laing: “Just to be transparent, you’re now advocating for Nathan Fletcher in a paid capacity, right?”
Laing recently left Mayor Jerry Sanders to take a job as communications director at Public Policy Strategies. Tom Shepard, who is running Fletcher’s campaign, is listed as a strategic advisor at Public Policy Strategies. He works in the same office, running Tom Shepard & Associates.
The Republican Party recently endorsed Carl DeMaio, one of Fletcher’s opponents for San Diego Mayor. Shortly after the endorsement, Krvaric switched his Twitter avatar to a DeMaio campaign flyer.

GOVERNOR PERRY WILL BE DOING A
“MEET & GREET” OPEN TO ALL SAN DIEGO
REPUBLICANS ON WED, SEPT. 7th AT 9 PM
Republican Party of San Diego County provides unique opportunity
for San Diego Republicans to hear from Governor Perry in person.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6th CONTACT: TONY KRVARIC
SAN DIEGO — The Republican Party of San Diego County will be hosting a “Meet & Greet” with Governor Rick Perry on the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 7th, following his participation in the Republican Presidential Candidates debate at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley.
Yesterday San Diego CityBeat’s John Lamb posted this on Twitter:
“(johnrlamb) X’s fingers @TonyKrvaric continues his meatball/beer/mashed-potato/beer/boiled-egg/beer/boiled-potato/aquavit-chaser diet. #strokeofgenius”
Ayn Rand once asked: “So you think money is the root of all evil. Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?”
Primary races boil down to two very basic survival needs: money and endorsements.
In truth, they’re about as closely related as identical twins. A candidate strong in both shows viability. They have something important to tell voters (“I’m supported by people whose opinion you value”) and the means in which to communicate their message with good consultants and volunteers through campaign mailers, advertising, websites, social media and campaign signs.

Courage Or Cowards? Exposing The Left’s Fear Of Congressman Issa
Wednesday, March 2nd
As you probably know, local congressman Darrell Issa is the new chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and is about to shake up the “business as usual” culture in Washington D.C. on behalf of hard working taxpayers and the American people by rooting out waste, fraud and abuse.
Needless to say, this has the far left in this country rather concerned and they have thus launched an unprecedented campaign against him and the important work he is about to embark on. This is how the modern left operates; personal attacks and sham organizations and websites.
As much as I loathe the California Democratic party, I have not been impressed of late with its Republican opposition. Temple of Mut has the goods on the latest move by the county GOP, and quite the move it was. Tony Krvaric appears to be the quintessential self-serving ethically challenged businessman type that often gives the Republican party a bad reputation. Temple of Mut’s article is filled with details about the unseemly conduct and ethical lapses by Krvaric in vacating GOP Headquarters at Griswold Corporate Center for an address identical to that of his personal business. She independently confirms a number of aspects of the story by CityBeat’s John Lamb.
I’m not exactly the most devoted GOP meeting attendee. But I’ll be there tonight to hear the recap of the wildly dead-on pollster John Nienstedt and Nov. 2 success-story consultant John Hoy.
I had the honor of working with both men on Proposition A – which crossed the finish line easily with more than 70 percent of the vote. Conversely on the difficulty scale, Hoy also consulted the hard-won race for Councilwoman-Elect Lorie Zapf.
Last month, I heard Nienstedt give some quick, off-the-cuff predictions that were eerily correct virtually across the board from the governor race on down to Proposition D.
San Diego Rostra has a friendly working relationship and much mutual respect with our left-leaning pals at San Diego City Beat. I don’t think we share a lot of readers on our respective blogs though which is a shame. City Beat’s blog is lively, entertaining and informative even if only in the “keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer” scheme of things.
City Beat’s crew recently bet Republican Party of San Diego County chairman Tony Krvaric on the outcome of Carl DeMaio’s ill-fated managed competition initiative. Tony went down in flames. He paid the bet off this week with good humor and generosity, winning much respect from his City Beat tormentors. Read what City Beat had to say about it in their (self-proclamed) “Last Blog on Earth.”
Reaction to the suggestion floated by San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders about putting a half-cent sales tax increase on the November ballot has drawn a stunningly swift reaction from numerous fronts. The San Diego County Taxpayers Association, Republican Party of San Diego County, Lincoln Club of San Diego County, San Diego Tax Fighters, Stop Taxing US, and City Councilmembers Kevin Faulconer and Carl DeMaio all issued news releases quickly denouncing the idea. T.J. Zane, CEO of the Lincoln Club, referred to councilmembers as “deadbeat relatives” asking for a handout, then upped the stakes by calling them “drug addicts” needing a money fix.
This is a bit lengthy, but worth it…
Let’s start with the biggest, and perhaps least exciting, races for the county (state races to follow tomorrow). In the 50th Dem Primary Francine Busby was selected as the Democrat nominee to lose to Brian Bilbray once more. I don’t think Busby was celebrating her victory, I searched for police reports and couldn’t find any so I guess she called it an early night.
From the local Republican Party…
SAN DIEGO — Just when you thought you had seen it all, Lorena Gonzalez’ Labor Council hits a new low with a disgusting, race baiting ad on Spanish language television designed to scare voters into voting No on Proposition G in Chula Vista.
The ad claims that the Arizona law just passed will result in people getting arrested if they look like they’re from Mexico, and implies that Proposition G will bring that type of discrimination to Chula Vista, essentially tying the faulty assertion of the first with the equally faulty assertion of the other.
Today’s Board of Supervisors was well attended, by citizens and media alike. The main topic was the launching of an investigation of local ACORN voter registration activities last year. Supervisors Bill Horn and Pam Slater-Price brought the item to the agenda, and during discussion it was discovered that on top of a nearly 1-in-6 error rate in registration cards turned in by ACORN, 76 actual cards were turned over to Secretary of State Debra Bowen nearly a year ago, with no resulting outcome or prosecution.
