Looking for Voter Recommendations? Here are some!

Posted by Craig P. Alexander on May 8, 2018

Absentee ballots should be arriving in voter’s mailboxes starting today for the June 5, 2018 primary election.  Many voters I know ask for advice on who to vote for during election season.  To help them, I publish my Craig’s Picks Voter Recommendations.  Other friends like Nancy Sandoval do as well.  One of the best sources is the site maintained by my good friend Robyn Nordell.  Robyn (like Nancy and I) does painstaking research about candidates and propositions then publishes her recommendations at her web site.  Plus she is very kind to publish my own, Nancy’s and others’ (like some guy named John Moorlach!).  We do not always agree on a particular race or proposition, but we all are pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and limited government.  None of us take any money for “endorsements” or our recommendations for or against any candidate, proposition or measure.

If you would like to see my Voter Recommendations here is a link to Craig’s Pics June 2018 – Final.

I have already chimed in on one aspect of the race for Governor here: Travis Allen – Not So Pro-life!

If you would like to see Robyn Nordell’s web site here is a link to her main page: Robyn Nordell.

If you would like to see Robyn Nordell’s Orange County web site page for her recommendations for Orange County specific races and scroll down for links to my recommendations and others like Nancy Sandoval’s here is the link: Robyn’s Orange County Page.

I encourage all conservative voters to vote in this primary race.  Not voting may allow two Democrats advance to the “Top Two” run off in November for certain races!

Antonovich for Governor 2018?

Posted by Allen Wilson on October 19, 2013

The 2014 campaign is underway for many candidates, but some California Republicans are looking for some light in the tunnel: 2018.

The leading candidates running for a challenge to incumbent Governor Brown in 2014 are former Lt. Governor Abel Maldonado and Assemblyman Tim Donnelly (R-Hesperia).

However, there are sources this writer has obtained that a group of donors are willing to hedge their bets behind Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich as a credible and viable candidate for Governor in 2018.

Supervisor Antonovich has a long resume of public service that started in 1969 with his election to the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees. Antonovich was then elected to the State Assembly in 1972 by serving three terms.

In 1978, Antonovich was unsuccessful in seeking the Republican Nomination for Lt. Governor, which he lost to Mike Curb.

In 1980, Antonovich ran and successfully defeated incumbent Baxter Ward for a seat on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and has been re-elected eight times and is term limited in 2016.

Though, in 2018 Antnovich would reach the age of 79 and my sources has indicated that the Supervisor is not interested to be a candidate for Governor of California.

California has been receptive by electing elder leaders to keep an eye on the youngsters running the bureaucracy and especially in the legislature.

As for the donors to skip the 2014 election cycle by looking towards 2018 is very telling for Maldonado and Donnelly that both must prove to skeptics and donors that 2014 is the year for Republicans in California.
