SAN DIEGO — At an endorsement meeting of the Republican Party of San Diego County today, Councilman Carl DeMaio earned the Party’s endorsement.

A 2/3 vote of committee members was required to back a candidate and DeMaio shocked political observers by clinching the endorsement with room to spare on the first ballot.

“I appreciate the endorsement of the Republican Party and look forward to earning the support of Democrats and Independent voters who understand the fundamental need for reform at City Hall,” said DeMaio.

“Today’s vote shows that this Party is united behind the fiscal reform agenda that San Diego desperately needs,” said Chairman Tony Krvaric. “We are committed to advancing reform with a complete slate of candidates and initiatives.”

The endorsement means DeMaio will benefit significantly from the Party’s grass roots volunteer base and financial resources.

“This vote was a reflection of growing grassroots enthusiasm for DeMaio, and enables us to advance our message of fiscal reform in a unified manner,” added Krvaric.

  1. The fact that DeMaio received this endorsement in the first round of votes is very, very significant. As like minds, we need to back the person who will do the job the best and make our city/county solvent.

  2. DeMaio vs. Filner in the runoff. Now THAT’s a race I look forward to!

    Now, if the local GOP candidates and their supporters can just avoid the circular firing squad approach so wildly popular in the Republican Presidential debates . . . .
