SD GOP Snubs Pro-Union Candidate

Steven Greenhut: The San Diego Republican Party gave its support for mayor to Carl DeMaio, the pension-reforming, no-nonsense conservative, over two other candidates including Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, who is closely allied with the police unions and amassed the most liberal Republican voting record in the Assembly. DeMaio is the only one in the race who can be counted on to actually reform the state’s pension system, so it was nice to see the GOP able to recognize the real Republican rather than the pro-union Republican In Name Only.

    Carl DeMaio is going to be Mayor based on just one issue-pension reform. That issue is such a lightning rod for the taxpayers that who ever step up and cures it is going to go as far as the eye can see.

    First Mayor- then gov. You heard it here first. From me.
