Congratulations, Abel, now get outta here

On the day that former Republican state Sen. Abel Maldonado conducted his formal swearing-in ceremony and is hosting Capitol-area receptions to celebrate his taking the office of lieutenant governor, he received a not-so-pleasant greeting today from his former colleague, Sen. Tony Strickland.

The campaign of Sen. Sam Aanestad, who is running against Maldonado in the GOP primary for lieutenant governor, issued a press release announcing Strickland's endorsement. In the statement, Strickland calls Aanestad "a principled conservative that voters can trust."

As opposed, perhaps, to Maldonado, who competed against and lost to Strickland four years ago in the GOP primary for controller.

Strickland joins his former boss and Senate seat predecessor Tom McClintock in endorsing Aanestad in a classic Republican Party matchup pitting a conservative against a moderate.

Over the last 25 presidential elections, Ventura County voters have backed the winner 24 times, or over 95 percent of the time. It is one of only a handful of counties in the nation that has been such a predictable bellwether.
