This came over the wire from the Troy Edgar for Assembly campaign…
Every Mayor in AD 72 Endorses Edgar
Bi-partisan consensus to elect Edgar to State Assembly
ORANGE COUNTY – Los Alamitos Mayor Troy Edgar and leading candidate for the 72nd Assembly District announces the endorsement of every Mayor in every City within the new 72nd Assembly District.
“It is an honor to have earned the support of my peers in the District. Many of my fellow mayors have worked with me for years and they know that I will strive for the benefit of the local community,” said Edgar.
“As a veteran, I understand the importance of teamwork and finding colleagues who have your back and know that you will have theirs as well. I am humbled that Fountain Valley Mayor John Collins, Garden Grove Mayor Bill Dalton, Huntington Beach Mayor Don Hansen, Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido, Seal Beach Mayor Mike Levitt, and Westminster Mayor Margie Rice have all publically stated they have my back in the 72nd Assembly District,” Edgar added.
In addition to these local endorsements, Edgar has the support of every Republican member of the State Senate and the State Assembly representing Orange County in Sacramento.
Edgar is also endorsed and supported by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer’s Association, the Orange County Taxpayer’s Association, the Orange County Family PAC, the Orange County Business Council, the California Small Business Association, the California Women’s Leadership Association and the California Republican Assembly.
Troy Edgar is a husband and father of three sons, a homeowner, Navy veteran, owns and operates two businesses, and is serving his second term as Mayor of Los Alamitos. Edgar is also a regionally recognized leader as evidenced by his election as the Chairman of the Orange County Sanitation District. Troy and his wife Betty – a school teacher – live in Los Alamitos.

(UPDATED 4:52 PM With Changes to the profile of Scott Peotter).
AD 74 Central Committee is the last of the race s that I will be handicapping for the June election. It has been a long and interesting process, and I hope that all of you readers have enjoyed these.
Credit goes to Meridian Pacific for posting these maps on their website.
The candidates include:
Emily Sanford– She is currently Scott Baugh’s alternate on the Central Committee and has been a volunteer with the OCGOP. I have heard people say nothing but nice things about her.
Christina L. Shea– She is best known for being one of the Republican members of the always fun Irvine City Council. In 2010 she was unable to run for re-election due to term limits.
Allan Bartlett– The leader of the OC Ron Paul fan club. He is a Libertarian leaning Republican that was recently involved in the blocked endorsement of John Campbell. *Incumbent.
John Draper– I don’t know a lot about him, although he is currently on the Central Committee and appears to be part of the tea party wing of the committee. *Incumbent.
Scott Baugh– Currently the Chairman of the Republican Party of Orange County also former Assembly Republican leader. He is usually way out in first place on election night. *Incumbent.
Greg Baker– I could find nothing on him.
Jon Aiken– Jon used to be on the Central Committee and has been a long time volunteer with the OC GOP since at least 2006.
Don Hansen– He is currently the Mayor of Huntington Beach and also rumored to be considering a run for the Orange County Board of Supervisors 2nd District.
Bill Dunlap– He ran for the Central Committee back in 2010 for the 70th district. In fact, he came quite close to winning the seat being just 250 votes short of defeating Allan Bartlett for the 6th and final spot.
Rhonda Rohrabacher– The wife of Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and also a political strategist. She has a lot of knowledge of the OC GOP and how it works. She is not an incumbent, but she will have residual name ID from Dana Rohrabacher.
Thomas A. Fuentes Jr.– The son of popular Republican Party Chairman Tom Fuentes. He was recently appointed as an alternate on the Central Committee created by the very classy Matt Holder.
He is a conservative attorney and also is best known to those that run in the same circles as members of the Family Action PAC. Apparently I mixed him up with his brother. Scott is a developer, Mansoor aide, former Newport Beach Planning Commissioner, and long-time GOP activist.
Gary R. Morse– I found when searching that he is an organizer with the Newport Mesa Tea Party Patriots.
Vanessa Mathews– I could find nothing on her.
Daniel Marshall– An Attorney who I could also find no information on.
Jeff Matthews– He and Vanessa Matthews are likely to split the vote by having similar names despite the fact that the last names are spelled slightly different.
Richard “Dick” Palmer– He is a Community Volunteer who I was unable to find much information about through Google.
John Warner– He is also an incumbent on the Central Committee and in my opinion will battle it out with Allan Bartlett for the 6th slot.
The factors at play- In these races the most important factor is luck. What I examined when determining who would win was name ID, ballot designation, ballot placement, district statistics.
Looking at all the factors at play in this district I believe that the 6 winning candidates (In no particular order) will be:
1. Scott Baugh
2. Emily Sanford
3. Don Hansen
4. Rhonda Rohrabacher
5. Thomas A. “T.J.” Fuentes
6. Toss Up John Warner/Allan Bartlett
