    Now I’m very happy to see that Dalati is now a Dem…
    BUT WHAT THE HECK IS LORRI GALLOWAY DOING THERE?

    Lorri sold out our party to endorse REPUBLICAN Lynn Daucher…
    So will she be reregistering as a Republican while Dalati becomes a Democrat tomorrow?

    Easy there, folks.

    Lorri is still a Dem. She made a very bad decision regarding Daucher/Correa, but she is STILL A DEM.

    No, Lorri is NOT A DEM…
    At least, not in the eyes of those of us who work so hard to get good Democrats like Lou Correa elected!

    No, Lorri threw us under a speeding truck to kiss up to her new GOPer friend, Lynn Daucher.

    Yes, I’m glad that Lorri WILL NOT be at tomorrow’s press event.

    Yes, let’s hope that Dalati remains true to his principles…
    And NEVER follows the example of politicans, such as Lorri Galloway, who sell us out over petty political fights.

    I have to agree that Lorri G should have no role in welcoming Dalati to the Democratic Party.
    Didn’t the Democrats recently try to pass something that would allow them to censure Democratic electeds who endorsed non-Dems?
    Didn’t John Hanna lose out on the party endorsement because a current congressional candidate was angry about his previous support for Ed Royce?
    The party needs to do something to create a sense of party discipline and make candidates and electeds think twice and have a very good reason to endorse non-Dems.
    Lorri G’s support of Daucher might be enough to tip the scales in the hottest Senate race in California. It looks like it will be THAT CLOSE!
