With a left-wing liberal Democrat like Jack Duran winning a supervisor seat in Roseville and the Richard Pan race giving the Dems a foothold in Granite Bay – the socialists that run the capitol are drooling. The Democrats think they can further pierce Dark Red Placer County.
It is the perceived weakness of Beth Gaines that has them salavating.
As it was told to me by a source inside speaker Perez’ office – Beth has had tremendous difficulty raising money from donors historically alinged with Ted Gaines.
As the residency issue alomst cost Conservative Icon Tom McClintock in his 2008 Congressional race, the Nepotism issue seems to be a larger factor against Beth Gaines than anyone thought.
Finally, the Dems are all aware of the cue cards etc and the reticence of the Gaines camp to have Beth Gaines in open format debates or exposed to having to speak at length in public (without questions in advance / controlling the format, etc).
The perception is that the combination of the above as an opportunity.
This is the information as it was presented to this blogger…
… what this means is – Perez still has an estimated $6million to play with. He could easily unload enough of it to prop up Campanelle. They got a terrible candidate Richard Pan (who can’t finish a sentence) elected, why not a 60+-year-old Union Organizer?
It certainly makes you wonder…
