I don’t know what to make of this vacuous statement from California Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring:
SACRAMENTO – California Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring today issued the following statement:
“The California constitution calls for the Governor to appoint the post of Lt. Governor should it become vacant.
“I urge the Legislature to put aside politics and fulfill their constitutional duty to confirm Governor Schwarzenegger’s nominee to the Lt. Governor vacancy.
“The legislature should move immediately on the confirmation of Abel Maldonado as Lieutenant Governor.”
Maybe the folks in the Legislature know Abel’s Character and don’t want to confirm him? I didn’t think confirmation was automatic?
But, more importantly, why would Nehring issue a statement urging the confirmation of someone who has routinely sold out the GOP to serve himself? Why would the Chairman of the California Republican Party advocate for a Republican more liberal than Arlen Specter was?
Things that make you go hmmm…
