The Democratic Party of Orange County passed a resolution last week that called for Democratic candidates to refrain from negative campaigning in the primary.
The Republicans could have used something like thisÃ¢â‚¬â€Tom Harman is just pulling himself out of the bloodbath that was created in the primary fight between him and Diane Harkey.
This resolution was created and directed at the 34th State Senate Primary where Suprevisor Lou Correa and Assemblyman Tom Umberg are running in a close, well-funded race. Umberg has already brought Correa to court, and hopefully the PartyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s resolution will cut out some of the viciousness.
Speaking to members of the Democratic Party Central Committee before the vote, Chris Prevatt said; Ã¢â‚¬Å“It is fine for us to support different candidates in a Primary contest, but what unites the Democrats in Orange County is that we do not approve of the negative personal attacks that have recently dominated close primary races for both the Republican and Democratic parties. This resolution sends a strong message to the candidates in the Democratic Party that we do not approve of such tactics in our Primary contests.Ã¢â‚¬Â
