With his amazing failure to make the San Diego mayoral runoff, Nathan Fletcher is down. But not out. No way!
Fletcher has demonstrated his fealty to the Democrat Party — enough that they WILL find an office for him in a suitable district. Think not? Reread his STUNNING labor union questionnaire — seven pages of detailed questions with Nathan answering just about EVERY question “correctly.” Such groveling loyalty is highly valued by the labor union bosses.
There’s always a job opening for such a committed labor union sycophant. Fletcher is a fine package to present for races north of I-8 in liberal-leaning districts. Mark my words — he’ll be back.
In the meantime, Fletcher’s near term financial future is secure. Perhaps he’ll be assigned to some state commission that pays a six figure income for maybe 6 weeks work a year. Or maybe Qualcomm/Jacobs will continue to carry him on the payroll until he wins an office. Or maybe both!
BTW, I’m told that the Libertarian Party is taking defensive measures — publicly announcing in advance that, if he again shifts parties, he will not be welcome in the LP. But it’s just a rumor at this point.
