Re: Duncan Hunter (CA-50) and wife indicted for misuse of campaign funds

The local party hacks denied Duncan Hunter an endorsement. The Dems need to put up a strong candidate. Maybe Sara Jacobs, she had a strong showing in the 49th district, Issa's old district. Ironically Jacobs is currently dating Campa-Najjar. http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/local-gop-re...

Re: Retail Bankruptcies

It is not just onlne sales that is sinking retail. People are spending more money on travel and food and less on clothes. Just got back from Yosemite valley, it was a zoo. Saturday was free so it was even worse than usual.

Re: John Robert Bolton, National (In)Security Advisor - Show Started 4/9/18 - Ended in Disgrace 9/10/19

Ordinarily Bolton being fired would be good news. However in today's bizarro world Trump will have no problem finding a worse choice. Bolton will not show the same loyalty that certain Marine generals have displayed. I am about to go off grid for 5 days. Monday morning should be interesting.

Re: California 53rd CD 2020

Jacobs comes from a wealthy family (Qualcomm) but she seems sincere. Friend of mine worked on her campaign for Issa's seat last year. She did very well but Levin was sort of the "Biden" candidate, best odds of beating Issa as he was from OC which is very red. I suspect Sara will do very well in that...

Re: Duncan Hunter (CA-50) and wife indicted for misuse of campaign funds

The man (and I use that term loosely) is not giving up easily. Another Republican will probably replace him. There is some speculation that Issa might actually go after that seat. In any event, this is the right wing of the Hunter family's last hurrah. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/darrell-issa-mu...

Re: California 49th CD 2018 D WIN!!!

I think the big win can be attributed to an amazing ground game by the Flip the 49th group. After the 2016 election a dedicated group of people started protesting at Issa's office in Vista CA every Tuesday. Darrel dismissed them as a bunch of nut cases. Bad move by Darrel, this motivated them to mak...
