More GOP Candidates Reject Log Cabin Club Endorsement

 

by Jon Fleischman - Publisher (bio) (email)(print)

 
5-2-2008 11:19 am
Sue Horne is locked in a neck and neck primary with Dan Logue in Assembly District 3 -- and was caught completely off guard when, unsolicited, she was endorsed by the state's Gay Republican organization, the Log Cabin Club of California.  Similarly, in Assembly District 71, which straddles the Orange/Riverside County boundary, Neil Blais is in a blowout primary with opponent Jeff Miller.  Blais, as well, was the subject of an unsolicited "drive by endorsement" by the Log Cabin Republicans.  Neither candidate went after the endorsement of the group, and as it turns out, neither candidate wants it.

Below is the text of a letter sent to the Log Cabin Republicans from Sue Horne...
Log Cabin Republicans of California

Director James Vaughn:

I am writing to let you know that my campaign for the 3rd Assembly District Republican nomination is neither seeking nor will accept an endorsement from the Log Cabin Club.

As you may know, I have taken a strong stance in defense of traditional marriage, and I believe our party must make traditional marriage a permanent plank in its ongoing platform.

This, of course, puts me in direct conflict with the interests of the Log Cabin Club.  Please forgo any consideration of my candidacy for possible endorsement.

Sincerely,

Sue Horne

If you click on the link below. you can actually pull up a .pdf of the letter that Blais sent to Vaughn.

I guess this would be the lesson learned -- don't endorse candidates for office, if you are a controversial organization, unless they ask for it,

Or the lesson might be, if you want votes be grateful no matter where they come from. We just told our members who might be marginally better. We endorsed her because of her stance against taxes, government red tape and the like. If she is actually in favor of higher taxes and more red tape on business then by all means let us know. We'd hate for our members to vote for a liberal in CRA clothing..
