I received an email that someone got a live phone call from Govern for California Action Committee. It went out about 11:00 AM today.

They paid for a live phone call to people in #AD06 attempting to chase absentee ballots and touting Kiley’s only campaign playing cards.

Govern for California PAC is funded by the same Obama Bundlers that Kiley has been hammered for accepting $250,000 from. Govern for California is also the intermediary that is responsible for raising at least $200k, maybe as much as $250k of Kiley’s Warchest. Click the hyperlink to see the notation on Kiley’s Campaign Finance Report of an Intermediary. Whose candidate is Kiley, anyway?

Tench Coxe, David Crane and John Scully highlight the list of donors to this PAC. Click the above link. The three of them all gave Kiley $4200.

As of right now – the PAC has not declared the independent expenditure. However, they are supporting democrats exclusively in other districts.

I can safely say that this was in the plan since last May when Kiley declared his candidacy and when he took to social media on 5/28/2016 to complain about being lit up for his liberal views and Obama Bundler donors – then this was a signal for the cavalry to come in. He knew he had an intermediary raising a ton of money for him and that they could also come in from the outside on his behalf.

It is also clear that Kiley has made these Bay Area liberals promises and is also willing to say whatever he has to in order to win.

SD04 Senator Jim Nielsen headlines the impressive list of state-level representatives that have stepped up for Bill Halldin.

“I trust hard-working, conservative business owner Bill Halldin to protect taxpayers from the Sacramento big spenders. Bill will work with me to stop the early release of criminals and to ensure consequences for those who continue victimizing our communities. I enthusiastically endorse Bill Halldin for State Assembly.”

Jim Nielsen, State Senator

Jim Nielsen is currently fighting attempts by Placer County Supervisor Jack Duran and others to turn Placer County in to a giant pot farm. (Speaking of Very Important Issues)

AD03 Assemblymember James Gallagher, whose District Borders AD06 to the North also joined AD05 Assemblymember Frank Bigelow whose District shares the largest border with AD06 of any Assembly District:

“Bill Halldin is a natural leader. We need leaders like Bill Halldin to join with me and the other conservative leaders in making the tough decisions in the State Assembly. Bill’s proven success at creating good paying, local jobs and owning a successful business for 17 years make him uniquely qualified to serve. I am proud to endorse Bill Halldin for Assembly.”

Frank Bigelow, Assemblymember

AD33 Assemblymember and assistant Republican Leader Jay Obernolte just joined the team recently. He said this:

“Bill Halldin will fight to create jobs and stop tax increases in the Assembly. Bill will bring to the Assembly the practical experience of running a business for 17 years and a deep commitment to public service. He will make a great representative for this district.”

Not to be outdone – well respected former State Senator Tim Leslie has endorsed Bill Halldin along with popular former Assemblymember Roger Niello:

Bill is a successful business owner, with deep knowledge and experience in our region. He is exactly the kind of leader we need in Sacramento to improve the business climate in this state and create jobs.”

Now – this is what it means when Republican Leaders are uniting behind a candidate for office.

No other candidate for AD06 has more than two state level endorsements. The above list includes 4 active members and 2 well-respected former members of the State Legislature.

IMG_4238_2 (2)I have written before that I think young Mr. Kiley has potential. That time is not now as his youthful lack of discipline and campaign integrity are overshadowing his talent.

There are several reasons why Kevin Kiley’s seemingly bizarre campaign is making more sense now. All he has is Pete Wilson, who barely polls anymore.

Kevin Kiley is not a Deputy District Attorney, he is a former Deputy District Attorney. He is no longer on the state Payroll. This is deceptive. He is unemployed and his job is running for office, this is not a good place for a candidate to be in.

Kevin Kiley is 31 and 4 years removed from law school. This suggests that he is inexperienced in life, let alone business.

Kevin Kiley left the AD04/AD06 area for 12 years. He returned on or around May 14th 2015, and declared his candidacy on or about May 27, 2015. This suggests he moved back from the Bay Area specifically to run. In fact, he is renting the house he lives in.

Kevin Kiley has been overheard saying conflicting things depending on the group he is in. This is a classic case of either dishonesty or an undisciplined candidate. (A common failing of a first time candidate)

Kevin Kiley is a social liberal. He is anti-prop 8 and has criticized its’ author for writing and defending it

Kevin Kiley said in a Sacramento Bee Interview that the issues of Legalizing Weed, the Delta Tunnels and High Speed Rail are very unimportant to him. This suggests the influence of his Bay Area donors, where the Tunnels are a non issue, but legalizing Weed and HSR are popular. This is called trying to split the baby.

Kevin Kiley is funded by Bay Area Liberals. His donors include a who’s who of Obama bundlers and donors to the Democrat Party.

Kevin Kiley has little, if any support from inside #AD06. His mail has implied an endorsement of former Sheriff John McGuinness who has given quotes and photo opportunities to at least 3 of his opponents.

Kevin Kiley claims that more than half his donors are from inside #AD06. This is deceptive again as 77% of his money has come from outside the district, with the overwhelming majority of that from the above-mentioned Bay Area Liberals.

Because Mr. Kiley is young and inexperienced, when exposed to scrutiny, experienced political people understand he is not ready for the Assembly.

Kiley’s major endorsement, Pete Wilson, appears to have come as a result of his hiring the Son of Wilson’s long time legal counsel to be his campaign manager. The youngster was falling asleep in trailblazer training sessions.

Kiley’s other major endorsement has been revealed to be a fraud.

I have seen other evidence that his campaign is a classic “Potemkin Village Drill”. This is a term us old grizzled warriors use. He has been able to get away with this because of the crowded 11 person field.

True to form in a Republican election, all the candidates are fighting like hell to be unique. The pity is that several good people are wasting their money in a fruitless effort.

CAAAAAAN YOOOOOOOOOU FEEEEEEEEEEEEL THE LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Tonight...It looks like I have been given a dual promotion… I am now the official campaign blogger AND Campaign Manager of Bill Halldin for Assembly. I am honored that YOU are here to share this moment with me.

Then I realized that it was Kevin Kiley that gave me the promotion. Maybe it was as real as his volunteer base, but I digress…

Young Mr. Kiley is proving that he does not have what it takes to be an assembly-member.

It is also clear that it is indeed Young Mr. Kiley that is starting to buckle under the pressure of a hotly contested campaign for Assembly.

The other problem for Kiley – other than being a liberal financed by Bay Area Obama Bundlers – is that he in his own words deemed Pot Legalization, Delta Tunnels and High Speed Rail as “Unimportant”. All three are disasters for the State of California. #EPICFAIL

So, yes – let’s get back to the challenges that are facing California. As Young Mr. Kiley has missed the train on several of them…

Leave us also not forget, Kiley has a handful of unknown endorsements locally. Bill Halldin has over 70 recognizable Republican leaders supporting him. When Kiley sends several pieces of mail asserting that Republican Leaders are unifying around him in a deceptive attempt to confuse voters, it is at best a stretch and is most likely a bald-faced lie.

I am not the only one that took exception to Mr. Kiley’s deception, I have been made aware of a host of local recognizable Republican leaders including Mayors, Supervisors and Partisan elected officials who took exception to Young Mr. Kiley’s tactics. There is a price to be paid for making such moves within a campaign. (scorching the earth)

Now that Young Mr. Kiley has been called out on his campaign rhetoric, he is attempting the classic victim pivot. #EPICFAIL
