Carl DeMaio Carl DeMaio Leave a Comment

Mayoral candidate Carl DeMaio today announced that his campaign has received the support of over 1,400 individuals in just the first 14 days of his campaign.

“As other candidates curry favor with entrenched politicians, government labor unions, and special interests, I’m seeking support from the people who really count: rank-and-file San Diegans,” declared DeMaio.

“San Diegans are not impressed by entrenched politicians, labor union bosses, and lobbyists who pat each other on the back and support candidates who will preserve the status quo,” DeMaio noted.

“I’m thrilled to have so many supporters this early in the campaign,” said DeMaio when the total number of early supporters was released. The announcement was made in a video released earlier today on DeMaio’s Facebook page utilizing Donor Tube, which allows supporters to make donations directly through the online video.
