Jeff Stone Campaign Info Got this email yesterday from anon who spoke with sum gai named xxxx. Interesting observations on JS and his position in the Republican party and Socal: Oh hai! Just got off the phone with xxxx xxxxx. He is sending me this afternoon several emails he got from the JS crew re the winery kickoff. Including the 60 endorsers. He provided extremely useful information on the political situation. JS has spent his career breaking into the good ole boy network in Temecula and Riverside. xxxx says there are only about ten movers and shakers there. He has good staff in Temecula. People either love him or hate him. His support is in the business and development community. xxxx said he used to tout his Jewish roots but hasn't done so for a while. He appeals to the law and order and conservative crowd. The most interesting is this: While J is now an insider in Rivercide, he is an outsider to the Republican establishment in Sacramento from Riverside and SD counties. The leading name here is Dennis Hollingsworth. Assemblyman Joel Anderson - El Cajon is running against JS: He is Hollingsworth's protege. Here is the situation in the district from Joel Anderson's website:. District Profile Assembly District 77 encompasses nearly 500,000 people. It includes parts of our border with Mexico, Imperial and Riverside Counties, and stretches into the City of San Diego. It is San Diego County’s largest Assembly District and one of the largest in California. It includes El Cajon, La Mesa, Santee, Jamul, Lakeside, Alpine, Borrego Springs, Ramona, Borrego Springs, and the City of San Diego. It is 100% within Senate District 36 (Dennis Hollingsworth) and 98% within Congressional District 52 (Duncan Hunter). Back to xxxx. He says it will be tough going for JS because the bulk of the district lies in East San Diego where he has to build a constituency. Other info I have gleaned is that xxxxx xxxx is a Catholic and member of St. Kieran's parish in El Cajon. He is strongly pro-life and was tight with SD auxiliary bishop who is now Bishop of Oakland. Dennis Hollingsworth was born in Hemet and lives in Murrieta. He has been State Senate Republican leader since February. This is a very conservative, pro-life, anti-gay marriage crowd. We need to plan ops as a nonpartisan pro-mental health care, pro-family, anti-disconnection, anti-human trafficking movement. Also, there are many secular conservatives and religious conservatives for whom pro-life and anti-gay marriage are not hot-button issues. They would care mostly about free speech, disconnection, and infiltration of government. It seemed to me that the La Mesa City Council decision represented good sense on the free speech issue. Free speech and human trafficking I think are our strongest cross-ideological issues. xxxx had only been following Gold from the LA Times and did not know about Nate Baca. He did not know how complicit JS is. As I recounted the story I got a lot of "Oh my"'s from xxxx.
