The Irvine World News columnist, pollster and Republican Party operative Adam Probolsky is advocating that failed US Senate candidate Chuck DeVore launch a bid for Irvine’s mayor against the popular and effective Suhkee Kang.Â Probolsky tweeted this yesterday and his column yesterday amounted to an ad for the Republican politician.
Probolsky wrote: “Supporters of making DeVore mayor say that his experience in Sacramento, where he battled a Democratic majority, makes him perfect for the job back here at home. The city’s budget deficits, while nowhere near the level of the state, is a major problem that DeVore could help fix.”
Let me remind Adam, DeVore has no record of accomplishment other than voting straight party line which is only a problem if you’re a Democrat.Â Probolsky’s column last week, a profile on Beth Krom, included a question about Krom not being a rubber stamp for the Democratic majority in Congress.Â Why that’s important to Adam when John Campbell is clearly a rubber stamp vote for Republicans seems a tad hypocritical.Â And since Adam and Beth recently appeared on the Rick Reiff program recently, let’s see if the Congressman takes Adam’s advice and doesn’t debate Krom.Â It’s clear Probolsky fears the outcome of such a debate.
But back to Chuck for a moment.Â Besides being largely ineffective in representing this district, in particular, ineffective at helping our schools gain any new ground in funding just to get us to the start average, Chuck has some issues to clear up about charges he used his paid assembly staff to help run his senate campaign.Â Be honest, Chuck needs a job that can pay the mortgage and the stipend paid to the Mayor of Irvine just won’t be enough.Â
The comments in Probolsky’s column are largely against DeVore’s candidacy.Â And since Carly Fiorina doubled Chuck’s tallies in Orange County, the appeal of Chuck by mainstream Republicans in Irvine may not be what he thinks it is.
