Like that Pete Petersen is running for State Controller. A lot can be done in that position by a man willing to do it. The Assembly race is one the the Republican can win, Pastor Mc Coy would no doubt be a force to be reckoned with in Sacramento, he is to make the pun ‘The real Mc Coy”. We walks what he talks.

Charles has some interesting questions. May I suggest that an abundance of the quetions would be more approriately answered by a more in-depth look at the candidates he mentioned.
That is not a critcism of the reporting. After all, you can only report on this meeting, not make an in-depth study of all candidates. That can happen with individual meetings with each candidate.
In the case of Pastor McCoy, other than Huckabee, when was the last time you heard of a Minister in politics? It’s not the usual thing you see and some additional comments may be appropriate here.
As the election season commences we may want to go into more detail on all candidates credentials. Who know’s, maybe a person of the cloth might just be what we need. After all, we’ve had a lot of people without his credentials running govenment in a fashion that has put us in our present situation.

Thank you for writing about this. Doesn’t seem to be a lot of coverage of the primary, which is just as important as the general election. Your article raises almost as many questions as it answers.

When was this event held? Why was there only one statewide candidate there? Why does “Pete” want to focus on cleaning up the voter rolls? Isn’t that the task of the Secretary of State? Bowen is doing a terrible job at that. Are the Republicans running anyone against her? If so, why the heck wasn’t he/she at this “forum?” How does “Pete” intend to reduce corporate filing fees? Doesn’t the legislature set those? Is he going to do anything else significant? Help balance the budget, catch fraud, misappropriations? Anything? Does he have any financial credentials?

Didn’t The Republican Women/moderator take any questions? Or was it just another hack show and tell?

I assume that Dagnesses is running for Congress, although you didn’t say that. One might assume that since Brownley is the incumbent and last I heard she was in the U.S. House of Representatives. What does he plan to do there, if on some remote chance, he wins? Or is he just running on “identity politics?” What is Gorell going to do, besides hand the country over to illegal immigrants and empty the treasury to pay for entitlements? Are there any significant differences in what they vow to do between him and Brownley? Dagnesses?

Did they run DePiedra to split the vote or what?

And what is “Pastor” McCoy supposed to do in office? You wrote nary a word about that. Is that because he said nary a word about it or because you are just fascinated by the idea of a cleric running for office?
