Tonight the Orange County Republican Central Committee decided to endorse Pat Bates over Cassie DeYoung in the fifth district OC SupervisorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s race.
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a blow to the DeYoung campaign since they had originally decided not to endorse anyone in this race since both candidates were considered to be good Republicans.
Why did they change their minds? Read Matt CunninghamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s opinion at the OC Blog.
I hear that tonightÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s GOP Central Committee wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t as exciting as the one back in April when they did a second-chance vote for Sheriff CaronaÃ¢â‚¬â€upsetting a good percentage of those in attendance. [OC Register story]
A friend tells me that only three of the votes were votes against the Pat Bates endorsementÃ¢â‚¬â€and one of those three was Tim Whitacre.
