It's that time again. Will Californians continue the trend of electing people who are destroying the state, as they have been doing for years, or will they choose those who will promote fiscal soundness, constitutional, limited government, free enterprise and economic prosperity?

They both seem to be Progressives. Since Diane Lenning's not running this year, seems like Lydia is the only option?
I see it that way as well, i need all the help i can get to help her message out, any help would be great
quick google search of the definition of the word “Cowardice” means: “a fear that makes a person unable to do what is right.” That certainly describes many of the folks on the Orange County Republican Party Central Committee from last night! The obvious right thing to do was to vote to officially endorse Tim Donnelly for Governor! Period! Apparently, it’s asking way too much for a supposed conservative / pro-constitutional political party to endorse a candidate who shares those same exact values!
David Curtis, the Green Party candidate for secretary of state, said he will show up at Wednesday's Sacramento Press Club luncheon debate featuring four of his rivals for the state's top elections post even though he wasn't invited.
"I was very disappointed to learn that a social group of supposedly prominent journalists would feel it appropriate to exclude any candidates,"Curtis said in an interview, adding that he only learned of the event after he saw a rival mention it on Twitter.
Pro-Common Core and Pro-Amnesty Advocate Jeb Bush Endorses Kashkari! Tim Donnelly for CA Gov.!
Why wouldn't a RINO endorse another RINO? :-)
Tim Donnelly for Governor.
Neel Kashkari traveled to San Diego to announce his “Students for Kashkari” coalition late last month. Looking at the 11 students gathered, he acknowledged an obvious concern.
“You’ve probably seen the polls that have come out,” said Kashkari, whose campaign for governor barely registers at 2 percent.
Kashkari told the students at University of California, San Diego, “it’s still early.” While most Californians don’t know who he is, the “good news,” Kashkari said, is they are unfamiliar with other Republicans running, as well.
Tim Donnelly for Governor! See our election recommendations just released on this site:

Glen Ratcliff REASONS TO NOT VOTE FOR KASHKARI
So-called ‘Republican’ Neel Kashkari — dubbed the “$700 billion man” for his work as administrator of the Troubled Asset Relief Program under the Bush and Obama administrations — is traveling the country laying the groundwork for a 2014 gubernatorial run in California against Democrat Jerry Brown.
Kashkari, 40, has talked to 600 donors, hit 80 venues, and consulted with GOP luminaries, and visited major think tanks to explore policy issues. But until now, his campaign — and his positions — have been all under the radar. Until he declared his candidacy, he NEVER attended a single GOP Convention or any other GOP function.
Now here’s Kashkari on the record on his experience and a host of key issues that are now confront the state:
*On why he’s a Republican: “I’m a pro-growth Republican….I’ve been a Republican my whole life…I believe that economic growth is the most powerful force we have to give everyone a better life.”
LIE – NO TRUE CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN WOULD HAVE VOTED FOR OBAMA
*On his role in TARP: “TARP was the most closely scrutinized program…..people have argued with us about our policy choices, though I think history has now basically been written — because we managed to avert the Great Depression, and we got all the money back, and we made a $49 billion profit for the taxpayers.
“I think history is going to judge that TARP was one of the most successful economic programs in our country’s history. And I’m extremely proud of what we accomplished…..for two different presidents.
“And, honestly…if you contrast what (the government) did with health care — the execution was flawless. not one penny was misspent.”
TARP WAS AN EXERCISE IN GOVERNMENTAL OVER REACH. BUSINESS SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO BANKRUPT AND RESTRUCTURE WITH NO GOVERNMENTAL INTERFERENCE
*On Jerry Brown: “I think Gov. Brown is a good man… I really admire that he’s spent 40 years in public service — or more. And I think he’s competent at managing government and presiding over the status quo.
ANOTHER STATEMENT OF HIS LIBERALISM
*How he’ll run his campaign: “We’re going to embrace the press, be totally open and totally transparent.”
TRANSPARENT – WHERE HAVE WE HEARD THAT WORD BEFORE
*On whether he would extend Brown’s Prop. 30 taxes: “That’s far into the future. Let’s start by getting the money’s worth for the money that we’re collecting. (In California), people are complaining about their high taxes, but the thing they’re really angry about is that it’s being misspent…”
LIE- WE REALLY ARE ANGRY AT OUR HIGH TAXES
*On Prop. 8: “I voted against it…..and I signed the GOP amicus brief (on that matter) to the U.S. Supreme Court.”
*On abortion: “I just want the government out of our lives, and that’s true on marriage, and on abortion.”
*On Obamacare: “It should be fixed. I’m not calling for repeal. (Republicans) have got to replace it with something better.”
TYPICAL LIBERAL-THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD STAY OUT OF HEALTHCARE
*On his lack of elective experience: “The notion that somebody has to be from Sacramento to work in Sacramento is complete and utter nonsense.”
NOT ONLY SACRAMENTO, HE’S NEVER BEEN ELECTED ANYWHERE
*On the Tea Party-lead government shutdown: “We should never have shutdown he government. That was not good for the Republican party, or the country.”
TYPICAL LIBERAL…ONCE IT WAS SHUTDOWN, IT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN REOPENED UNTIL THE GOP GOT EVERYTHING THE CITIZENS NEEDED
*On AB32, the landmark climate change bill signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger: “The science behind climate change is pretty compelling,’’ and believes there is a human link. “But…this is all about technology. Simply raising the cost of power in California is not efficient.”
TYPICAL LIBERAL…ALL WEATHER IS CYCLICAL AND NOT MAN MADE
*On Offshore oil drilling: “I’m open to investigating…..(and the case for exploring) Monterey shale looks “extremely compelling.”
NO INVESTIGATON NEEDED…JUST DRILL BABY DRILL
*On GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly: “I’ve never met Tim. I watched his campaign video and I thought it was really funny…by the way, I am much better chopping wood than he is….we’ll have a throw down and it will last about 30 seconds.
LOOSEN YOUR HAT…YOU HAVE TO BE A MAN TO HANDLE AN AXE.
