Marginal US Senate Candidate Richard Ramirez whose campaign literature indicated that he is a self-admitted “longshot candidate” got endorsed by the California Republican Assembly.
I am not going to focus on Greg Conlon or John Borat(sp) who got no votes, nor will I focus on Orly and Nachum Shifren, both of whom who had boutique followings.
Conlon is a liberal. Borat is an idiot. Orly is Orly – You should have seen her campaign literature, it was amazing to say the least (in a really, really bizarre manner similar to what you’d see in a psychological manual).
Nachum Shifren is running, in my opinion, because he enjoys the attention of being a candidate. I like Nachum, but a US Senate Race in California is not the place for him.
Elizabeth Emken (who I support) finished in third. Her speech to CRA had the most content in it by far. However, Emken had received the CRP endorsement in the star chamber which basically sealed her doom in the CRA.
Emken met with several people during the day on Saturday – but she was the main target, especially of Richard Ramirez.
Dan Hughes was the biggest loser in my opinion. I actually feel sorry for him. Hughes has four people stealing his money from him under the guise of this campaign. They should all be sued for malpractice. Buttner, Franklin, Spillaine and there’s that name again, Dave Gilliard.
I said stealing – what has Dan Hughes gotten for the damn near $140K? He couldn’t get the time of day from the CRP or the CRA, no one other than Chuck DeVore is supporting him and he has gotten a bunch of email out that are copied from others or full of grammatical errors and typos!
Since I have lived with and am living with Dave Gilliard’s “ethics” – I get why he’d be taking a candidate’s money basically for nothing.
Dan – please do not put that $150k into the campaign. It will only go in to the pocket of the people who haven’t done a damn thing for you! Your Chuck DeVore endorsement couldn’t even get 25% of the delegates in CRA!!!
Richard (Al) Ramirez spent the entire weekend at the CRA Convention. He ripped in to Elizabeth Emken hard all weekend – which played well to an audience of people looking to crown Elizabeth Emken the “boogie-man”.
And it worked. But, not on this blogger – I did not vote for Richard (Al) Ramirez once.
Ramirez doesn’t have a pot to piss in and he will get 2% of the vote – the CRA will get nothing out of this endorsement other than sticking it in the Eye of the CRP.
Richard Ramirez for U.S. Senate – the CRA just slashed the CRP.
