I just wanted to let my readers know that as a Conservative Christian, that the candidates I like the least are those that abuse their faith for political ends. CA-08 Grifter Tim Donnelly and CA-12 Grifter Deanna Lorraine are God-soaking their campaigns as well. (CA-XX = XX Congressional District in California)

Your intrepid blogger has learned that Feucht is something of a musician who likes to take overseas trips for short term missions. Neither of these are a bad thing, but grifting in to a Congressional Campaign to sell some CD’s is ridiculous. (At least I did not type records)

I am alternatively getting treated to Sean’s Jesus-told-me-to-tell-you emails and solicitations for his Non-Profit. Send me ‘yo monaaaay.

Sean Feucht lives in Redding – smack in the heart of CA-01 (LaMalfa) – thus requiring him to grab his amp and his gheetar and go to CA-03 whose extreme northern boundary is 50 miles away in sparsely populated Glenn County. However, the population center is in Vacaville/Fairfield – both 150 miles away.

I am reticent to call Feucht a fake Christian or a Narcissist as some of his detractors have on twitter. I’ll have to investigate him further, but at this time I see a lot of indicators that suggest Sean’s campaign for Congress is not what it seems on the surface. Having grown up in the Church and seen my fair share of pseudo-religious movements and just plan religious manipulation – Mr. Feucht has my antennae up.

He started his campaign by staging an event at the Church of his Republican Primary Opponent Tamika Hamilton (who I am supporting) without disclosing to said Church he is running for Congress against her and it also appears he is church hopping mixing ministry and politics in a manner that may be a violation of applicable campaign law.

Sean Feucht for CA-03: Grifter Alert Issued.

This is America and this is the GOP – Tamika Hamilton is an American success story. Some people I trust have also endorsed Tamika and are excited about her candidacy against John Garamendi.

Check out Tamika Hamilton for Congress.

Tamika Hamilton was born in Calvert County, Maryland in 1984. Estranged from her father and born to an underage mother, Tamika was fortunate to be raised by her grandparents who she credits with first instilling in her the importance of public service. Tamika’s grandmother, Geraldine, took on extra work cleaning houses, while her grandfather, Francis, worked two jobs to help provide for Tamika growing up. Tamika says she is so fortunate to have had role models in her life that taught her the importance of hard work and service to her country. Tamika’s grandfather, a Purple Heart recipient for his heroic service in the Vietnam War, was the first to encourage Tamika to serve her country in the military. Within a month of graduating high school Tamika arrived at basic training for the United States Air Force.

Over 14 years of active duty in the Air Force, Tamika has been stationed at five different bases and two deployments in the Middle East as part of Operation Enduring Freedom, the United States Global War on Terror. During her 14-year military career, Tamika was awarded the Air Force Achievement Medal, Joint Service Accommodation Medal, Air Force Meritorious Unit Award, and Air Force Good Conduct Medal. Two years ago, Tamika chose to become an active Air Force reservist so she would not have to deploy with with young children at home.

Tamika and her husband, Ray Hamilton, live in Dixon, California with their four children Kaedyn, Gabriella, Ryan and Beau. Ray is also a veteran (US Navy) and continues their family’s public service as a local police officer. Both Ray and Tamika are active in their local church and volunteer with local community groups. It was Tamika’s experience with her homeless ministry, particularly her work with homeless veterans, that caused her to take a stand for her community and run for Congress.

Tamika’s district is a very dynamic and diverse cross section of California with farming, viniculture, urban population centers and two Air Force bases. As a candidate for office, she is focused on core issues that will actually impact the daily lives of her constituents.

There is a stark contrast between Tamika Hamilton and any of your other choices in CA-03, depth of knowledge, connection to the actual district and a real resume of life experience. By any objective measure as a Republican Tamika Hamilton should be your choice for Congress in CA-03 as well.

Congressional Fundraising Numbers In California – Mixed

 CA-03 Race, CA-07 Race  Comments Off on Congressional Fundraising Numbers In California – Mixed
Feb 032014
 

Dan Logue Vs John Garamendi – Logue has a net $125k and Garamendi has a net 215K.

The fact it is that close should have the DCCC in a tailspin. At +9 dem, this should be a hold for the dems. Garamendi from what I am told is not as popular as he should be in that district.

Or, maybe he’s lazy.

in CD-07 – the Fraud Doctor is sitting on $800k+. When you’re the number one target, it is easy to get the kool-aid drinkers out there.

Doug Ose’s report is lackluster and is quite a bit lower than I and others had expected. We expected him to be in the 750k range.  Ose did the usual paper $250k thing to inflate his number – but the net $230k on hand tells the whole story.

Igor Birman sits with a net $106k on hand.

The closeness of Birman to Ose is going to draw fire from the heavy-hitting IE groups in my opinon.

A Review of Ose’s reports shows that he has gone to a lot of his low-hanging fruit. A lot of the donors read like a who’s who of beneficiaries from his votes in Congress.

Elizabeth Emken is sitting on -6k net.

Moderate Republicans Jeff Denham and David Valadao look to be doing just fine in their upside down districts.

Tony Strickland is carrying the $400k he raised for CA26 in to CA25. Buck McKeon was hoping to pick his successor.

In CA26, neither Republican has a whole lot of money for a dem seat. Liberal Republican Jeff Gorrell has $100k in the bank.

in CA45 – I am wondering why Greg Raths and John Moorlach are running. Mimi Walters is burying both of them in money on hand, by over 11 to 1 in both cases.

Gary Miller in CA31 has a warchest

Raul Ruiz has a warchest to defend against Moderate Republican challenger Brian Nestande. This is the seat lost by liberal Republican Mary Bono-Mack.

The most bizarre info of all – is CA-09. Tony Amador who announced with much fanfare has $1200.

This is old news. That’s ok because my spin on it is not.

First off – the incredible article from the Marysville Appeal-Democrat.

The quotes are a consultant’s dream – if you’re Dan Sharp or Kim Vann:

I’m first and foremost a Marine, and a Marine puts country first,” Schaupp said. “In this case, it’s time for Charlie Schaupp to step aside and do what’s best for the country.

She’s proven to me she’s trustworthy and knows what she’s doing,” said Schaupp

It’s clear to me Vann is the one who should represent the party.

Charlie Schaupp ended Rick Tubbs’ hopes of getting anywhere past 5% of the vote.

Tubbs had arrogantly thought that he could muscle everyone out of the race and position himself as the conservative alternative. Tubbs has two problems (other than a cronic lack of money) his wife and himself.

Having seen Tubbs in action, he is a used car salesman who has little if any substance to what he talks about. (EDIT – sentence deleted)

Kim Vann deserves better and the GOP deserves better than to see a targeted Congressional Race be subjected to the bizarre sideshow of the Tubbs campaign.

Do I think Rick Tubbs will suspend his campaign for the good of the GOP? I doubt it.

However, as reported back to me by people who were there… Rick Tubbs looked flabbergasted that Charlie endorsed Kim Vann. The most flabbergasted person will be John Garamendi in November when he realizes that he is out of office for the first time in 30+ years.

One of the most telling things I heard about was when Charlie confronted Garamendi. Garamendi could not regain his composure the rest of the morning – it is amazing what happens to career politicians when they are forced back in to the real world.

Kim Vann is going to kick John Garamendi’s butt – and with a Marine’s Size-12 helping him off the side.

P.S. I deleted a disparaging comment about Kristy Tubbs – she is not the candidate, Rick is and as such, I should have left her out of it.

I got to see H.L. Richardson speak – wow. At 84 years of age, he is amazing, still. I did not know that Sam Paredes is H.L.’s son-in-law.

The attendance at this dinner was phenomenal and I took note of a Monument that the Knights of Colombus placed on the Church Grounds. The Catholic Church where the event was held was built in 1880, and the multi-use room was built in the 1940’s in my best estimation as Marysville has been repeatedly screwed by building codes, Sacramento budget cuts (all the money goes to LA and welfare) and the economy that the enviros have decimated…

The Monument said “Dedicated to the Children, known only to God, who died from Abortion”.

This is stirring in light of the presence of Doug LaMalfa and Jim Nielsen at this event and their roles in the attempt to decimate the Republican Party Platform.

Doug LaMalfa hung around the fringes of the room and attempted to introduce Bob Williams from Tehama County to people. Williams is a supervisor that Nielsen / LaMalfa recruited to run (along with David Stafford Reade) against Dan Logue to try and bleed him of money in preparation for a battle for LaMalfa’s Senate Seat. Jim Nielsen also stayed on the fringes.

This is only possible if LaMalfa beats Sam Aanestad.

LaMalfa spoke in generic terms, but did fine.

Don Logue was like a rock star as Yuba is his home county.

Jim Nielsen was bizarre at best – he rambled and then sounded like he was a revival preacher quoting scripture and the like. It was hard to sit through.

Of note – Sutter Supervisor James Gallagher was working the room. It is apparent that Team Reade/LaMalfa/Nielsen expect Dan Logue to stomp Bob Williams as they have been warming Gallagher up in the bullpen for a while. Expect that if AD-03 comes open – Gallagher is the heir apparent for that seat.

Of course, they tried that with Herger anointing LaMalfa, we’ll see if Aanestad has something successful to say about it.

The CA-03 Race was the real highlight of the night – the crowd was a decidedly Pro-Charlie Schaupp Crowd. He knew most everyone in the room. The sideshow was reserved for Rick Tubbs and his wife.

Kim Vann was present and did her best to meet a few people – but had to leave early with Dan Logue, Jim Nielsen and Doug LaMalfa for a Police Awards event somewhere in the area.

Kristy Tubbs was entertaining as she worked the room and Rick Tubbs looked like a used-car salesman.

Kim Vann had with her an accordian file of important papers etc. What a contrast in candidates – Vann is on a mission with her campaign in order and Tubbs is out selling cars.

Charlie Schaupp – he is so real, it is astounding. A Marine, in Yuba County…

… to be continued.
