Annette and Warren

"Warren Beatty scares me," is what Democrat Pamela Anderson (no relation to the movie star) just told OC Register reporter John Gittelsohn. We are standing outside of the rally building where Annette Benning and Warren Beaty are boarding their "BS" Bus (my name) as they go off to shadow the Governor at his appearances in Riverside and beyond.

So far every opponent to the Reform measures that I have met is a paid union employee…go figure!

Arnie’s Bus in LA

Well, actually a empty warehouse in Irwindale.

John and Ken were our hosts. State Senators Tom McClintock and Bob Margett, and Assemblymen Keith Richman and Bob Huff all addressed the crowd. They then asked for the audience to clap for the best speech. Margett took off before voting and, of course, McClintock was the winner.

Despite waiting for the traffic delayed bus, when it pulled into the warehouse — yes it pulled into the warehouse — the crowd went wild.

We need alot more events like this before Tuesday. A Note: Julie Justice McGinity came out of retirement for this one. Nice job.… Read More

From Arnold Rally in Anaheim

Here at Pacific Transformer Company in Anaheim Hills where Governer Schwarzenegger is giving a rousing speech to hundreds of supporters of Props. 74, 75, 76 and 77. The Governor was introduced by Orange County Sheriff (and my boss) Mike Carona.

If the energy here is indicative of the electorate…we may see some big wins this Tuesday!

Well, I’m going to go try and be important and hang out with Assemblywoman Mimi Walters, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, former Party Chairman Shawn Steel and others!

Oh yeah…props to the National Federation of Independent Business for putting this great rally spot together!… Read More

Goings On In San Diego City

Yesterday’s San Diego Union Tribune’s article “Labor Unions and Republicans Square Off” and today’s “Republican Donations Pour in for Two Camps” basically re-enforced what co-bloggers Probolsky, Mitzelfelt, and today Jantz have been writing about – the rise of Republican local county organizations. In years past, the article would have been framed with some segment of the business community or the Chamber vs. the labor unions. But in recent years its been clear that the GOP has become the central organizing body of the center-right’s coalition to take back City Hall from labor union bosses. To wit, the San Diego GOP, with help from local business owners, has raised close to a million dollars in the last month and has engaged in the Mayoral and Council races with hundreds of thousands of dollars.

In the final days of the campaign for San Diego City Mayor big labor has gone on the offensive. They are running a tv ad that morphs Republican candidate Sander’s face into that of former Mayor Dick Murphy, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, President George Bush, and former President George Bush. This may be over the top… Read More

SD Mayor will have Much to Deal With in Aguirre

Although local polling by Datamar shows a tightening in the San Diego mayoral election, most bets are still on former SD police chief and Republican Jerry Sanders to win it on Tuesday, not the least of which is because of the GOP machine Ron Nehring has built in the county. (See just one of the recent news stories.) Fellow FR blogger Duane Dichiara, in the heat of the SD action,will be doing further analysis of the mayoral contest in the days ahead.

Whether the ultimate winner is Sanders or Democrat Donna Frye, the new mayorwill have to deal with volatile San Diego City Attorney Michael Aguirre.

Goodbye CA – Hello Tennessee!

Executives with Nissan Corporation here in the United States may soon be turning in their posh luxury suite seats for Lakers games at Staples Center, and instead be on the hunt for season tickets to Tennesee Volunteer games.

It is reported in the news today that officials with Nissan have (pretty much) said they are going to be moving their offices out California and across the lower-48 to Tennessee.

According to the article:

"Industry observers have said Nissan may be considering a move to save money. A relocation to Nashville would allow the company to take advantage of favorable tax incentives and low cost of living."

Perhaps at some point, the State Legislature will think about trying to help the California Chamber of… Read More

Rohrabacher’s Hollywood Dream

Congressman Dana Rohrabacher from the Long Beach/ Orange County area find himself under scrutiny over his ties to an accused swindler/ producer who gave him a $23,000 option on the rights to his script called “Baja.” Rohrbacher then helped the accused swindler/producer meet various government officials. Read the story here.

I want to be clear about a couple things.

Rohrabacher generally has been a good conservative congressman. Great on immigration. Awesome in fighting Communism during the cold war. Less so on things like homosexual marriage and stem cell research.

I don’t believe Rohrabacher broke any laws. This isn’t a replay of the problems facing Congressman Cunningham in San Diego.

I hope “Baja” gets made. Not so sure a show about Homeland Security Department though. You can imagine the shows. “How Banning Nail Clippers Prevented High Jacking”,”The Ins and Outs of the… Read More
