Tim Donnelly for Governor Conference Call

Wednes­day my friends at Four Tier Strate­gies arranged for a con­fer­ence call between blog­gers and GOP can­di­date for Gov­er­nor of Cal­i­for­nia Tim Don­nelly.

Don­nelly is an assem­bly­man out of the 59th dis­trict who has got­ten some noto­ri­ety as a mem­ber of the Min­ute­man move­ment but two weeks ago his can­di­dacy got sup­port from an unex­pected source (via Politichicks):

While Rob Schneider’s endorse­ment & state­ments have pro­duced attacks on him the decline of Cal­i­for­nia and the migra­tion of busi­ness are very much real.

Mr. Don­nelly spoke to us about his back­ground, he elected to run when the assem­bly­man “sold out to raise taxes” and talked of the cul­ture of the leg­is­la­ture where bring­ing your actual promises to the floor is not the way things are done.

He bluntly stated the Democ­rats in Cal­i­for­nia have evolved, no longer democ­rats but Marx­ist pro­gres­sives and said his advan­tage is a strong posi­tion on issues.

Dur­ing the Q & A he talked bout his back­ground as a small busi­ness owner (a sup­plier of spe­cial­ized machine parts) and noted that he approaches and talks to the peo­ple nobody talks to.

When asked about if the open pri­mary law would just mean a field of democ­rats he said the sys­tem can be taken advan­tage of by the GOP when they under­stood it, stress­ing the first task before all oth­ers is to Turn out the Base.

That in itself is a huge state­ment for a repub­li­can when many are busy run­ning away from them.

He con­tin­ued: “Once you do you have to reach out to oth­ers with­out sell­ing out.

In other words you don’t have to reject your base to make your case to peo­ple out­side of it.

He talked about the taxes on the work­ing poor being the sin­gle biggest issue in the next elec­tion and dis­cussed how you make the case giv­ing the exam­ple of Obamacare.

When he the case against it he makes it a point to refer to the law by its name the “Afford­able Care Act”. The idea is to play on that not­ing it sim­ply is not affordable.

I asked about his state­ment con­cern­ing Democ­rats , not­ing while the media had no prob­lem going after the GOP as “extrem­ists” they were not so anx­ious to note Democ­rats move to the left.

He bluntly noted: “The media is never going to carry the water vs the left but they will if they think they are dam­ag­ing us. So we have to give them some­thing they can’t help but cover and gave the fol­low­ing example:

There was a day when mil­lions of ille­gals took to the streets, prior to that I went to the bor­der told them I would fix the fence and dared the gov­ern­ment to stop them. We man­aged to get a ton of pub­lic­ity out of that position.

He also noted a fight between farm­work­ers who don’t want to be union­ized who were appar­ently were union­ized in the 70’s but never told but they were. The unions want the dough out of the checks but they are resist­ing not­ing the fair treat­ment they have received oper­at­ing non-​union. As Mr. Don­nelly put it:

It’s a great fight for us. Work not wel­fare, we’ll have His­pan­ics stand­ing behind us talk­ing about work and not want­ing a union fight­ing against us. Media will have to tell that story.

He also pointed to the strong 2nd amend­ment base in the state that crosses party lines but also noted that while he will work to help efforts to recall efforts tar­get­ing sen­a­tors & leg­is­la­tures who voted vs 2nd amend­ment but also noted the efforts must be strate­gic in dis­tricts where suc­cess is possible.

This seems to be exactly what the GOP needs a per­son who:

1. Doesn’t reject the base
2. Reaches out beyond it
3. Thinks Strategically

It’s a promis­ing start, Let’s hope Mr Don­nelly is able for California’s sake take this cam­paign has an equally promis­ing finish.

Wednesday my friends at Four Tier Strategies arranged for a conference call between bloggers and GOP candidate for Governor of California Tim Donnelly.

Donnelly is an assemblyman out of the 59th district who has gotten some notoriety as a member of the Minuteman movement but two weeks ago his candidacy got support from an unexpected source (via Politichicks):

While Rob Schneider’s endorsement & statements have produced attacks on him the decline of California and the migration of business are very much real.

Mr. Donnelly spoke to us about his background, he elected to run when the assemblyman “sold out to raise taxes” and talked of the culture of the legislature where bringing your actual promises to the floor is not the way things are done.

He bluntly stated the Democrats in California have evolved, no longer democrats but Marxist progressives and said his advantage is a strong position on issues.

During the Q & A he talked bout his background as a small business owner (a supplier of specialized machine parts) and noted that he approaches and talks to the people nobody talks to.

When asked about if the open primary law would just mean a field of democrats he said the system can be taken advantage of by the GOP when they understood it, stressing the first task before all others is to Turn out the Base.

That in itself is a huge statement for a republican when many are busy running away from them.

He continued: “Once you do you have to reach out to others without selling out.

In other words you don’t have to reject your base to make your case to people outside of it.

 

He talked about the taxes on the working poor being the single biggest issue in the next election and discussed how you make the case giving the example of Obamacare.

When he the case against it he makes it a point to refer to the law by its name the “Affordable Care Act”. The idea is to play on that noting it simply is not affordable.

I asked about his statement concerning Democrats , noting while the media had no problem going after the GOP as “extremists” they were not so anxious to note Democrats move to the left.

He bluntly noted: “The media is never going to carry the water vs the left but they will if they think they are damaging us. So we have to give them something they can’t help but cover and gave the following example:

There was a day when millions of illegals took to the streets, prior to that I went to the border told them I would fix the fence and dared the government to stop them. We managed to get a ton of publicity out of that position.

He also noted a fight between farmworkers who don’t want to be unionized who were apparently were unionized in the 70’s but never told but they were. The unions want the dough out of the checks but they are resisting noting the fair treatment they have received operating non-union. As Mr. Donnelly put it:

 

It’s a great fight for us. Work not welfare, we’ll have Hispanics standing behind us talking about work and not wanting a union fighting against us. Media will have to tell that story.

 

He also pointed to the strong 2nd amendment base in the state that crosses party lines but also noted that while he will work to help efforts to recall efforts targeting senators & legislatures who voted vs 2nd amendment but also noted the efforts must be strategic in districts where success is possible.

This seems to be exactly what the GOP needs a person who:

1. Doesn’t reject the base
2. Reaches out beyond it
3. Thinks Strategically

It’s a promising start, Let’s hope Mr Donnelly is able for California’s sake take this campaign has an equally promising finish.
