The Ventura Government Center Tea Party drew together many local conservative / libertarian activists and local Republican politicians looking for their support. This picture has State Assembly candidate Daniel Goldberg and County Supervisor candidate Audra Strickland meeting. Daniel Goldberg posted it online. If you are interested in his campaign he updates his Facebook page frequently with his latest news.
The Republican primary campaign is between him and Strickland consultant Mike Stoker. The winner will be face off against either Susan Jordan or Das Williams in a district that heavily tilts towards Democrats.
Daniel Goldberg started off his campaign by saying he was a moderate that represents a Republican Party that can win in California. Now is trying to appeal to the more conservative elements of his own party.
You can't be a moderate and praise people that say:
"I have no idea whether or not he's a citizen," Bonney said.
She doesn't budge on this. When told that Hawaiian newspapers carried birth announcements for Obama, she counters that Kenyans believe he was born there.
"I don't really know," she said. "That's pure speculation, I don't get involved in that."
She claims to not know if Barack Obama is a US Citizen. Local Tea Party rallies often have signs with the Soviet Hammer and Sickle with Barack Obama. Their website has captions on pictures that falsely smear the commander in chief stating he won't salute the flag.
Does none of that offend you?
By the way, did you mention to them you supported Barack Obama?
This isn't the campaign I expected from you. There is time between now and June to show you are truly a moderate Republican. Use it.
