Tim Allison, who is running for the Democratic nomination in CA 24 ( Currently Rep. Elton Gallegly), has picked up a great endorsement from State Assembly Member Pedro Nava. Adding this to his earlier endorsements he has a growing list of labor leaders, elected officials, and grassroots activists. I haven't endorsed a candidate and I don't plan to until I know more about each of them.

Many blogs have a policy against posting press releases. I like to post them so you can read directly what the campaigns are sending out. I also like to post them for the grassroots activists that are looking for tips on how to write an effective press release. It is among the tools I make available to grassroots activists and campaigns. I have also posted a list of party registration, contact information, and when a seat comes up for election to help out those that want to get involved. Thanks to longtime reader and commenter Katie Teague for creating that list. Another resource available is the district maps I have posted. If you know a better source for a map that I have posted please leave a link for us.
