Gotta love Republicans. This time the moderates are doing what Conservatives are famous for – all jumping in to a race, pointing the fingers at each other to get out, then assuring the victory for the candidate none of them like.

A deputy DA from Sutter County joins Pizza Manager Tim Core, Liberal Republican Supervisor Kim Dolbow-Vann Vann and -34 in the CA-03 race – his name is Tony Carlos.

Mr. Carlos like Vann and Garamendhi (who happens to be the Dem Incumbent) supports open borders.

Heck, maybe the Lake County Undertaker, the Yolo County Dog Catcher and the Western Sac County mugwump manager will join the race, too? At this point, David Reade could use some of the money he’s made over the years undermining the Republican Party to run…

The Willows Journal had the announcement.

Note that Carlos sounds like a Ron Paul guy – absolutely no mention of the social issues. I’ve seen enough of those in my lifetime.

CA-02 (Herger) – Herger has three primary opponents. Herger will be entering his 30th year in Congress next year and does not appear to be in serious jeopardy yet. He will be forced to actually do some campaigning and spend some money, however.

Expect Herger to retire after this term to hand the seat off to Doug LaMalfa in 2014.

CA-04 (McClintock) – The RINO challenge has not materialized with the Consultants coalescing behind Liberal Republican supervisor Kim Dolbow-Vann in the CA-03 race. Vann uses the same consultant as McClintock’s rumored opponent – who decided to stay in his own, new district.

CA SD01 (No One) – Ted Gaines has not moved yet. He will. He will also be left to deal with Shasta County Supervisor Les Baugh. Baugh announced last weekend.

CA SD04 – (LaMalfa) gets a free ride and does not have to run for re-election until 2014 (see the note above). He can spend the next 2+ years continuing his jihad against Rick Keene supporters, or doing something useful for the citizens of California… his choice.

CA AD-01 (No One) – Dan Logue Moved to Lake Wildwood. He is the prohibitive favorite. For some strange reason, Redding City Councilmember Rick Bosetti decided to enter the race. Dumb. (Even worse when you consider that Logue only has 2 years left before Prop 34 ends his tenure)

CA AD-05 (No One) – Rico Oller is running for his last term. Kevin Hanley and Ray Nutting endorsed Rico Oller. Country-Club Liberal Republican Frank Bigelow apparently missed the memo and is continuing to run (while talking about open borders and tax increases to pay for high speed rail).

CA AD-06 (Beth Gaines) – As of now, it is Beth Gaines only. No known opponents. This district is very compact and relatively easy to cover. It includes, Lincoln, Rocklin, Roseville, Granite Bay, Loomis, Fair Oaks, Orangevale, Folsom, El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park. That’s it.

We will have plenty to do next year in Placer.

Congressional Race Updates: CA-02 Stiglich to Take on Herger Again? CA-03 Draws Another Customer

CA-03: I am still waiting to see the entire field. Rick Tubbs is going to run for Congress again – after taking aim at George Miller in the district he used to be in, Tubbs, from Solano County is going after Garamendhi. I don’t know much about Tubbs at all.

Tubbs will join Conservative Retired Marine Colonel Charlie Schaupp and Liberal Republican Supervisor Kimm Dabrow-Vann in the race against John Garamendhi for CA-03.

CA-02: I detected a recent blog post from Shasta County super-activist Cherrill Clifford about Colonel Pete Stiglich. Stiglich is a long-time antagonist of Wally Herger’s and ran against Herger in the Primary of 2010. This becomes interesting as Placer County is now in CA-02.

Check out the Shasta Conservative Blog here for more on the Stiglich redux.

BTW – Stiglich is the President of the Shasta County Republican Assembly – the CRA endorsement in CA-02 will be an interesting sidebar to this tilt.
