It’s a tragedy for California – really sad.

 

No Republican running has the:

1) Money

2) Collected data of potential voters

3) Is able to properly market with a professional digital and targeted direct mail campaign.

4) Get Out the Vote campaign (GOTV)

 

Without those four elements, their efforts are a waste of time.

 

This means two very bad candidates will run against each other – Dianne Feinstein and Kevin De Leon.

 

There are 32 candidates. I know many personally.

For example, Arun Bhumitra, a successful businessman and Herb Peters, a Libertarian Christian and a warrior for liberty running as a Democrat.

 

Conservatives needed one candidate to get behind to come in #2. They don’t have it.

 

The top candidates to oppose Feinstein and Kevin De Leon are:

  • Tom Palzer is great on the issues and very active in the political process. I rated him a “4” out of 5.
  • Erin Cruz is the favorite of the Tea Party and is better than all the others for her energy, enthusiasm, and communication skills. Therefore, I rate her a “5”.
  • Paul Taylor is awesome on most of the issues and is trying to bring Christians together. I rate him a “5”.

 

With all their good intensions and hopes of supporters, any coming close to the #2 would be a miracle. So, in researching candidates, it’s not intelligently “strategically limiting evil” by going with a viable candidate.

 

So, in this case, we have given Paul Taylor a 5-star rating and endorsement. I wouldn’t have a problem recommending Paul or Erin – and would in a second if they had money to compete.

Here is the current polling the money each candidate has:

Kevin De Leon8%$1,006,056
Tom Palzer0%$18,106
Paul Taylor0%$8,493
Erin Cruz0%$16,616

 

 

Incidentally, it would have taken about $800,000 for one of these candidates to come in #2 to take on Feinstein.
