From the Republican Party of San Diego County…
A quick update on reactions to the County Supes’ decision to curtail our Party’s ability to elect Republicans…
1) Ron Nehring’s OpEd ran yesterday. It’s a must-read:
2) Today the U-T weighed in and called the proposal “naive and doomed to fail”:
“…the rules are built on an assumption at odds with modern American history: that people who want to use their money to pay for political speech to advocate their interests won’t be able to find a way to do so.”
3) Grass roots Republicans are making their voices heard via email and phone calls to the Supervisors. According to our records…
* Greg Cox received 23 calls in opposition yesterday
* Ron Roberts received 40 calls
* Dianne Jacob received 78 (!!) calls
And Bill Horn has been receiving praise from throughout the county and has received at least 52 calls thanking him for standing with us.
Of course we don’t know about all the calls and we have no idea on how many emails, but needless to say those of us who work hard to elect Republicans to all levels of government are FURIOUS.
So keep the calls and emails going!
By-the-way, at the hearing on Tuesday, there was NOT ONE SPEAKER IN FAVOR. I doubt they’ve received any phone calls or emails in favor since, so this attack on our Party solely rests with Greg Cox, Ron Roberts, and Dianne Jacob.
Hmm… I wonder who’s been whispering in their ears? Tom Shepard and another “brilliant” idea of his? I mean the last couple of them worked out so great for Nathan Fletcher and Bob Brewer after all.
Finally, I’ve already heard of at least one group that has dis-invited one of the Supervisors from addressing them. I suspect it’s just the beginning.
After all, the Supes filed divorce papers with their vote this week. One just wonders if they’ll be finalized or not at the second reading on Tuesday?
Anyway, have a great Friday – and weekend! And thank you for all you do to help elect Republicans throughout San Diego County!
To be continued…

PS. Thank you for the many phone calls and emails in support. Judging from the caliber of the folks reaching out to me I can tell that there is a LOT of frustration with the Supervisors and this latest stunt seems to be the straw that broke the camel’s back.
