Wrong for California

In 2012, voters across California sent nine (9) targeted Republican Congressional incumbents and challengers packing. In 2014, we're not giving these California Republican House members and candidates a pass. Learn more about their record, including their efforts to shut down the government, and find out why 2014 will be the year California voters shut down the Tea Party Republicans.

DeMaio Owes the Tea Party

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

It’s no secret Carl DeMaio has embraced the Tea Party movement.  In a speech DeMaio gave to a Tea Party group, he referred to them as the “conscience of the accountable government movement.”

In that same speech, DeMaio clearly states that there is no room for bipartisan compromise and promotes the “my way or the highway” negotiating style that has brought Washington D.C. to standstill thanks to his Tea Party compatriots already in Congress. 

Upon seeing this video, it’s clear DeMaio will simply add to the gridlock in Congress and voters shouldn’t expect much in the way of solutions from him.

Walden raising cash for Nestande

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

It’s day two of NRCC chairman Greg Walden’s California Cash Blitz!

Today he is fundraising for Republican Brian Nestande, who is running in #CA36. Nestande fits the profile of the kind of Republican Walden is looking for to fill the extreme Republican Congressional ranks. He has voted against raising the minimum wage in California and is a supporter of the Paul Ryan budget.

Walden is surely salivating at the chance to finally implement the Paul Ryan budget - which would effectively gut social security - and getting Nestande, into Congress will give Walden and Republicans a chance to enact their extreme budget.

Check back for more updates on Nestande and the Congressional Republican candidates who are Wrong for California this cycle.

Walden Raising Cash for Ose

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

Greg Walden the Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee is in town for a California Cash Blitz.

First up on his fundraising tour is his old pal Doug Ose running in #CA07. The two have quite a bit in common, including a willingness to risk Social Security’s future. Both Ose and Walden supported President Bush’s Social Security privatization plan in 2001, which included huge cuts in defined benefits for seniors.

Now Chairman of the NRCC Walden is surely counting on Ose to tow the extreme Republican line on a variety of issues if elected.

Bringing Ose into the congressional ranks of the extreme right would give Walden, and Congressional Republicans, a real shot at achieving their radical goal of implementing the Ryan budget, which would effectively gut Social Security.

Check back for more updates on Ose and the Congressional Republican candidates who are Wrong for California this cycle.

DeMaio Wins Koch Money Sweepstakes

Tenoch Flores, California Democratic Party

Republican Carl DeMaio has earned the dubious distinction of being the first Republican House candidate in California to receive a political contribution from the Koch Brothers.

Charles and David Koch, known as the Koch Brothers, are billionaire Tea Party funders known for their political contributions to uber-conservative causes and candidates. In Carl DeMaio, it seems the Koch Brothers have found their man in San Diego.

Denham Goes Extreme….Again

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

Jeff Denham recently voted for the reckless Ryan budget, which takes aims at Medicare, cuts Pell grants and slashes funding for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), among other things. Once again, Denham sides with his fellow Tea Party members no matter how destructive their policies are or how negatively they will impact his own constituents.  

To illustrate the point, according to the USDA in Denham’s own district, over 83,000 of his constituents rely on SNAP benefits.[1] When it comes to Medicare, 39,000 of his constituents depend on Medicare[2] for their healthcare according to the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Service*. All told, over 100,000 of his constituents would feel the pain of the Ryan budget, not that it seems to matter to Denham.
