SD01 (Northeast Cal): added Rex Hime (R) - 2019 special for Ted Gaines seat - date set in January
Happy Monday! Anybody want to be White House Chief of Staff? I haven't seen this many "noes" since I was seeking a prom date. Actually, I had dropped out junior and senior prom, but you get the picture.
Thank you for the great feedback on my write-up on the challenges of the CA GOP yesterday. If you didn't read it, I encourage you to and share your thoughts.
I had one sentence that I had edited with the gibberish filter on and did not catch in my final read-through. On the issue of Congresswoman Alexandra Cortez-Ocasio's criticism of the agenda and sponsorship of the Harvard Kennedy School's orientation for new members, I meant to convey that if Ms. Cortez-Ocasio wants to ensure that all interests are represented on every panel, then she should propose that the government pay for it. After all, the "Welcome to Washington" free event is voluntary and not official.
After overseeing conferences over many years, I know that they are expensive and you will never please everyone. I frequently heard from my members in hotel hallways "You know who we really needed on that panel..." Cortez-Ocasio--who while I think is a bright light to Washington and I appreciate the fight she brings from the Bronx--is a media darling right now, making a normal grumble turn into a political issue.
