GOP Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is in Orange County today soaking up some sun and sponging Republicans here for cash and the OC is an ATM for GOP national candidates. Even if Romney is the eventually GOP nominee, he has a snowball’s chance in hell of taking California in November.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
DPOC Chairman Frank Barbaro put out the call for OC Democrats to dig deep.
Here’s his email:
Did you know Mitt Romney is in Orange County today raising big bucks for his presidential campaign?
This is the same guy who supports the new GOP budget proposal that includes even more tax cuts for the wealthy while making additional cuts to Social Security and ending Medicare as we know it.
Even more disturbing is the fact that 5 out of 6 members of Orange County’s congressional delegation are in support of this plan to gut the middle class. Only Representative Loretta Sanchez has been a voice of reason in this debate.
Are you as mad as I am that these people represent you and me?
We know a lot of people are asking you for support and that all of our pocket books are stretched, but your contribution will help us build the infrastructure we need to take on the right wing and elected more Democrats here in Orange County.
There are over 517,000 registered Democrats in Orange County. We have the ability to change the number of elected officials and make this county more blue but we can’t do it alone.
