Ok Folks – who is going to be the Auburn Candidate?

Kevin Hanley has been mum – no one knows what his plans are.

But, two of Hanley’s colleagues on the Auburn City Council have removed themselves from contention.

Mike Holmes had told several people he is out, Keith Nesbitt told my source he is out.

This leaves Michael Babich is the Auburn Candidate – but not so fast…

Placer County Supervisor Jim Holmes, who is facing the real possibility of having to run against Jennifer Montgomery for re-election as supervisor in 2012 after lines are re-drawn is said to be “seriously considering” a run for AD-04.

Holmes also mulled a run against Tom McClintock for Congress previously.

With the potential entry of the Reverend Karen England in to the Race – we are looking at Nine Customers at this point:

1. John Allard
2. Scott Yuill
3. Ron Briggs
4. Ray Nutting
5. Donald Wilson
6. Michael Babich
7. Jim Holmes
8. Suzanne Jones
9. the Reverend Karen England

Nuts.

Placer County Republican Central Committee Gets Convicted of Fundraising

That’s right – Tom Hudson has engineered the largest fundraiser in the history of the Placer County Republican Central Committee. We get to keep all $32,400 of the money given to us by Assemblyman Joel Anderson

In a letter received just this afternoon – the FPPC has exhonerated the Placer County Republican Central Committee.

An article posted in the San Digeo Union Tribune earlier today said that the Central Committees of Placer and Stanislaus would be exhonerated – but this blogger waited until the actual proof was in hand before posting.

I am wondering how those that promoted this story to the local media in an attempt to discredit the Central Committee are feeling now – not referencing those quoted in the articles. I have detailed how some of the local electeds (Jim Holmes, Peter Hill) who have run afoul of the Committee were all to eager to give quotes to the media –

Meantime – Tom Hudson looks like a genius because the Central Committee now has $32,400 to spend on the 2010 cycle.

I think the Placer Central Committee might consider endorsing Joel Anderson for Senate should he run 😉

P.S. according to the Union Tribune – the Fresno Cent Com and Anderson’s campaign are going to get fined.
