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.

Charlie Schaupp’s CA-03 Announcement Gets Some Press

Contrast this to some of the quotes coming out of incumbent politicians:

“Garamendi does not fit this district,” he said. “This district needs someone who will represent farmers, military and small businesses.”

He’s not shy about where he comes from and how he wants the government to change.

“I am a Reagan Republican and believe in the principles of limited government and self reliance that made our nation great,” he said. “I am pro-life, pro 2nd Amendment and believe that local governments, not the huge fiscally irresponsible bureaucracies of the federal government, are best suited to solve our problems.”

“The federal government needs to do an about face,” he continued. “They need to restore fiscal responsibility. If the government had to earn their money, they would spend it more judiciously.”

Thank you to the Vacaville Reporter for the story.

Two days earlier the Woodland Daily Democrat also gave Charlie some love:

“I believe that we should ‘Restore Congress’ which means we must restore ethics, honesty, fiscal responsibility, common sense, personal accountability, trust and restore the values and principles of our Constitution.”

Schaupp’s family settled in the Hungry Hollow area of Yolo County more than 130 years ago and his family still farms 3,000 acres of various crops north of Esparto.

“For five generations, my family has worked to protect our community’s way of life and our agricultural heritage,” he said. “I also fought to protect our nation’s defense for 28 years in the U.S. Marine Reserve. I am not finished serving my country.”

Ladies and gentlemen – we have a race.

CD-03 Update: Tim Core will File / Eugene Ray Announces

In a blow to the Rick Tubbs effort to clear the field – Tim Core has confirmed to friends that he is “In the race to stay”. Core is an assistant manager at a Domino’s Pizza in Yuba City. I’d gather that Mr. Core won’t be on Kristy Tubb’s Christmas list again.

I have a soft-spot for Domino’s Pizza as I used to be able to toss a two-tray in less than 5 minutes and could even bust out a large Pepperoni in 41-45 seconds.

In a further blow to Rick Tubbs – fellow Solano County Resident Eugene Ray announced that he too is running. This puts 7 customers on the ballot for CA-03.

Eugene Ray was covered by the Fairfield Daily Repbulic – despite being denied an opportunity to speak at the Solano GOP Lincoln Day Dinner.

Eugene Ray is a Realitor and some sort of martial arts guru. I’d love to see him get the drop on a mannequin of John Garamendi.

For those of you scoring at home:

Tony Carlos – an open borders advocate from Sutter County
Tim Core – Pizza Guru from Sutter
Kim Vann – Colusa Supervisor annointed by the establishment
Charlie Schaupp – Marine / Farmer from Yolo
Rick Tubbs – AutoMall Sales Rep / Air Force Desk Jockey from Solano
Eugene Ray – Realitor / Martial Artist from Solano

John Garamendi – Socialist from Sacramento County

Counties not represented thus far: Lake, Glenn, Yuba. Don’t worry, there is still time.

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.

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.
