I am going to be rather blunt. I got the notification of this event forwarded to me and all I could think of was that it was a tail-covering because Assembly GOP Leadership were content to let Andrew Kotyuk swing because they were too cowardly to take on the swamp that have poured over $1 Million in to Chad Mayes. If Andrew Kotyuk does not make the runoff, the rank-and-file GOP Activists will be livid and Jessica needs to be able to claim she did something.
If Andrew Kotyuk does not make the AD-42 runoff, you can make bank Jordan Cunningham, Tyler Diep and maybe one other bolt the GOP because the NPP Precedent will be set.
Jessica Patterson has helped Kotyuk a bit, but it is clear that Rosilicie Ochoa-Bogh is the total fixation of the Senate Caucus, Leadership, Consultants and the like.
If you care about the future of the GOP – you may want to show up and ask Jessica Patterson whose decision it was to spend $250,000 of the Senate Caucus’ limited resources trying to pick a winner in a primary? (referring to SD-23 where Oil Interests have poured $1Million in to Rosilicie Ochoa-Bogh and the Party another $250K)
Where was the big money for Andrew Kotyuk in AD-42?
Where was ANY help at all for GOP Endorsed Kelly Seyarto in AD-67?
What are you going to do when Jordan Cunningham, Tyler Diep and others go NPP?
What is the plan to avoid a loss of as many as 8 legislative seats this fall?
Please join us and CAGOP Chairwoman Jessica Patterson for Get Out The Vote weekend this Saturday in Yucaipa.
Date & Time: Saturday, February 29, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.
Location: White Rabbit Coffee Company, 35256 Yucaipa Blvd., Yucaipa, CA 92399
We are asking that all volunteers commit to at least knocking 100 doors.
Now is the time to act to ensure that our endorsed candidates make it through the Primary Election.
If you can’t walk but you are willing to make calls, please let me know. I’ll get you setup for that instead.
If you want to carpool, please contact me. I will match you up with other volunteers.
Thank you for your help!
P.S… Check out our list of endorsed candidates here.
Think it through, she called Andrew Kotyuk and basically told him who to hire. The implication was he would not get supported unless he played ball and guess what? Kotyuk got very little support as it is.
While Jessica Patterson may not have had any hand in the decision by party bosses to jam down the endorsement of Ochoa-Bogh and the decision of Matt Klemin / Shannon Grove to dedicate a disproportionate amount of the meager resources of the Senate Caucus in to Bogh, here she is nevertheless leading a precinct walk in a contested GOP Primary.
Meantime, AD-38 Suzette Martinez-Valladeras, nothing. AD-67 Kelly Seyarto, nothing. AD-73 Laurie Davies, nothing. Ling Ling Ling Chang, Scott Wilk and John Moorlach – 3 vulnerable senators who have received less caucus money combined than has been poured in to Bogh.
Make sure you show up in Yucaipa and start asking questions about the decisions being made behind closed doors – because conservatives and real party activists have been almost completely exterminated from Party Committees and having any voice in the decisions at all.
