Although I may be a centrist Republican who is burned out by the Republican Party establishment. I am not totally against all Republicans running for office in 2006 in California.
Any Republican I disagree with will probably get a polite non vote. If conservatives in my local area could just simply not vote for Tom Campbell in 2000 when he ran against Dianne Feinstein, I could vote for someone else with enthusiasm.
Here are my Republicans of note for this June 2006 primary election.
Keith Richman – Treasurer
Inclusive Republican dedicated to the big issues that face our state as a whole. Assemblyman Richman has proposed solutions to solve our upcoming pension crisis and the numerous uninsured Californians that grow each year.
Abel Maldanado – Controller
The lesser of two evils. I am uncomfortable having Tony Strickland as the nominee. Due to the Strickland family using campaign money for their own personal gain.
Steve Poizner – Insurance Commissioner
He is the only one running in the Republican Party for this office, and if he was running against anyone else I would still vote for this man who almost won in a overwhelmingly Democratic party district in 2004.
I wish I was able to support Bruce McPherson for Secretary of State, but his certification of Diebold voting machines makes me uncomfortable to punch his name in the voting booth.
Lastly, our Governor does not deserve my support either. Governor Schwarzenegger is only a slave to the Democrats who want to put our state into fiscal peril, and to our own party who wants to restrict personal freedoms.
81 and 82 NO
