I don’t care what people say, political nick-knacks can be very effective. Especially when those same nick-knacks are utilized brilliantly. Apparently OC Republicans definitely agree, Congressman Ed Royce and Supervisor Janet Nguyen came to the Garden Grove Strawberry festival and politicked the place out. Nearly every adult in the festival was a “fan” of Ed Royce, as his political fans cooled the crowd from the hot morning sun. Janet Nguyen did just as well, by handing out tons of balloons to kids along the parade route.
This brings me to the main point of this blog. Where is our challenger for the 40th Congressional District? We need another Krom to take the fight to them for once. I mean I know this is a “safe” republican seat. So safe that it hasn’t gone to a Dem since its inception in 1992, but seriously folks all it would have taken for you to compete with Ed Royce today at the GG Strawberry festival would have been $392 for 1000 similar fans, and a smile.
I’m calling out the Dems in the 40th Congressional District, to find a good prospective candidate, and not just one that the party is sending out as a sacrificial lamb. This defeatist attitude that is all too often held by Dems in OC is disgusting, ridiculous and the very reason this is a “safe” seat.
I, and a small group of dedicated Anaheim Young Dems pledge to volunteer to walk every single block of the 40th that resides within the Anaheim City Limits , as well as put together a Anaheim Resident Fundraiser, when and if a good candidate “not just a party sacrifice” comes forward.
Let’s make this soon people; we only have 17 months left.
