Former Senator Joe Dunn is the only candidate for Congress is CD-46 who has failed to file a candidate’s statement. This is considered either a major mistake or a major omission by the campaign with one source telling TheLiberalOC that the campaign’s finance’s are a major reason why no campaign statement was filed. The source told us the Dunn campaign is burning thought cash and couldn’t swing the fee. I find that hard to believe, but absent a response from the Dunn campaign, we’ll note it.
We don’t have access to the latest Dunn financials, but a failure to deliver a candidate’s statement is a glaring omission. We reached out to the Dunn campaign early Friday morning and they have not responded.
So why isn’t there a candidate’s statement?
Dunn’s public speeches reference his record and his votes often without clarifying for the audience that this record was nine years ago. There are a host of new voters who have no idea what Enron even means let alone remember the energy crisis wrought on California the early part of last decade. A candidate’s statement is an excellent way to communicate directly with voters.
When Dunn’s team gets back to us, we’ll publish their response as an update to the post.
