Irvine city council member Beth Krom and former Assembly candidate Melissa Fox will host a fundraiser for Fullerton Mayor Sharon Quirk-Silva’s AD-65 candidacy in Irvine tonight from 6-8PM.
The the race for Assembly shaping up to a two horse race between Quirk-Silva and Norby, Republicans are putting a lot of pressure on Norby to crush Quirk-Silva in the primary. Quirk-Silva is taking a longer term view and focusing on November instead of the June primary. Here are the details for tonight:

Meanwhile, there are some interesting going-ons with the Facebook account of Norby’s wife Marta. Greg Diamond of the Orange Juice blog has a post about this, but to drop the other shoe, those who know Mrs. Norby well say this is her Facebook page and the messages were not hacked.
Here’s a screen grab from the page this weekend that has since been scrubbed:
