The California Association of Political Centrists ( CAPC ) have released a scorecard on how the candidates they rated in this past election did. Click on continue reading for details.
Because their membership is made up of people from both parties they are frequently viewed with suspicion by people left and right.
When I 1st got an email from Katie Teague talking about her new group a few years ago I immediately googled her name and found out she was a Bush/Cheney volunteer and organizer for Ventura County. Needless to say I was suspicious if her new group was really a Republican front.
Katie, I was wrong.
Anyways, what are the plans for the next year? Do you see CAPC getting involved in the Venutra City elections? What about any other local elections or reforms?
CAPC has been a resource for data for me and I appreciate the work your members do.
