Final endorsements

For U.S. senator we recommend Carly Fiorina. It’s time to replace Sen. Barbara Boxer. She has stood in the way of equipping our troops with the best equipment and protective gear, she has stood in the way of creating jobs  and she has tried to grab more land for wilderness in El Dorado Country. She has blocked Valley farmers from getting water for their crops. The former Marin County supervisor is out of touch with the needs of California and this country. Replace her with someone who is going to vote to lift this debt and onerous health care legislation off the backs of Californians and Americans.

For state senator our endorsement goes to Assemblyman Ted Gaines. He will hold the line against new taxes. That is key. Both he and Assemblyman Roger Niello have accomplished worthy things in the Assembly, as much as the Democrats will allow, but our support goes to the one who voted against the increase in sales and income taxes. That person is Ted Gaines. Because this is just a Republican primary for this office, Gaines is also running for reelection to his Assembly seat. Should he win the Republican primary for the Senate and then the general election in January, a special election would be held to fill his Assembly seat. We endorse Ted Gaines for reelection to his Assembly seat and also to the Republican nomination for the state Senate.

For lieutenant governor we endorse the appointed incumbent, Abel Maldonaldo. Between him and Gavin Newsom, the mayor of “sanctuary” San Francisco it is no contest. We support a farmer, Abel Moldanaldo for lieutenant governor over the man who is mayor of the biggest homeless population in California.

For the rest of the statewide offices we support Republicans for their inherent fiscal conservartivism: Damon Dunn for secretary of state; Tony Strickland for controller to replace obstructionist John Chiang; Mimi Walters for treasurer to replace a political hack, Bill Lockyer; Steve Cooley for attorney general and not the Democrat from San Francisco who would turn the office over to tort lawyers and tie the entire state up in environmental knots. For insurance commissioner, Mike Vilnes.
