A Fine Republican Evening

I've just come back from a fund raising dinner for Tom McClintock's campaign for Lt. Governor. I've always been impressed with Senator McClintock, and tonight reaffirmed my support of him. The guest speaker tonight was Dr. Laura Schlessinger, who, for a public figure, was surprisingly low maintenance and very gracious to all the dinner guests. I got a picture with her and Tom McClintock. As soon as I get that from the staffer, you can be sure I'll be posting it.

Dr. Laura spoke about her upbringing, how she came into the Jewish faith (she was raised in a secular home), and why she supports Sen. McClintock. She was funny with a speech that was both eloquent and  succinct. She then introduced the senator, who talked about the ills in Sacramento, the courage of the Governor to stand up to the fiscal powers at be, and his plan to change the tide of irresponsibility in politics sweeping our great state. I learned a great deal tonight. I consider myself politically aware and concerned, but I'm not nearly as informed as I should be, as I learned tonight.

I don't know how much I can be involved in the campaign, but I do plan on throwing my full support behind his run for Lt. Governor. I think he would be phenomenal in that position. I don't think he had the charisma, Hollywood charm and money that Arnold possessed, which ultimately doomed his run for Governor, but I think he has a great chance of winning this election. 

I look forward to helping him achieve that end, and I will keep you apprised of all the latest happenings and important issues involving California. Here's to a great run and Senator McClintock as California's next Lieutenant Governor!
