Dennis Carpenter's campaign has been solidifying support among Republican Party leaders and I expect we will see more endorsements rolled out over the next few weeks. With both Tony Strickland and Audra Strickland running for office I don't know how involved they will be getting but I expect they will be helping Dennis Carpenter.
It would be interesting to see if they start going after more endorsements from school board members, park board members, and even water boards. Geoff Dean has a large fundraising advantage as of now but I expect that will narrow. Will there be IE committees that will form to support Dennis Carpenter?
Does this force Geoff Dean to look for more support from Democratic groups? Over the coming months I predict Democratic activists will see where Carpenter is getting support from and start working to elect Geoff Dean.
The informed voter poll The Star reported on doesn't influence my view of the race much without seeing the questions that were asked. Sure, it is more scientific than the online polls on my blog but that isn't saying much. My polls are to gauge the intensity of the supporters of a campaign and for fun. So far this poll shows both candidates have very energized supporters.
My general policy is to leave phone numbers out of press releases unless someone requests I keep it in.

California State Senator George Runner Endorses Carpenter
California State Senator George Runner endorsed Chief Deputy Dennis Carpenter in his bid to be the next Sheriff of Ventura County. This is a key endorsement for Chief Deputy Carpenter as Senator Runner is a consistent advocate for crime victims and a strong proponent of law and order. The California State Sheriff's Association, Crime Victims United and the California Sexual Assault Investigators Association, and the Coalition of Chief Probation Officers have named Senator Runner Legislator of the Year.
Senator Runner authored California's Amber Alert Law in 2002 and along with his wife co-authored California's Jessica's Law in 2006. Chief Deputy Carpenter shares Senator Runner's passion for protecting our children and keeping our neighborhoods free from the fear of crime.
Chief Deputy Carpenter is proud to have Senator Runner's support in his quest to become Ventura County Sheriff and he looks forward to forging strong ties with other Ventura County Representatives in Sacramento.
Friends for Dennis Carpenter for Ventura County Sheriff 2010 is a group of citizens dedicated to supporting the election of Dennis Carpenter for sheriff of Ventura County.
