    Nice cut ‘n paste. Did you happen to notice there’s no endorsement for 72nd Assembly? That’s speaks volumes about the viability of the candidate pool.

    One might also wonder why Kermit Marsh is designated as “Hon.” even though he holds no office other than with the party. Kermie is no longer on the Westminster Council and got beat badly when he ran for Supervisor.

    • You’ve spent a lot of time writing comments about how much you hate the 72nd Assembly District and it’s getting annoying. Why don’t you tell us all who you would like to see as the Assemblyperson.

    • “Hon.” is still applicable to former elected officials.

      Considering Travis Allen’s biography says he is active in the Lincoln Club, that speaks volumes about his candidacy when the Lincoln Club refuses to endorse one of its own members.
