That’s what she says in an email to supporters yesterday, claiming that a “Grassroots Constitutional Conservatives” survey shows her with a 30 point lead over her Republican Primary opponent Damon Dunn.
Organizations participating in the survey are listed as (the accuracy and safety of the following links are not assured by the management):
- Tea Party Patriots Campaign for Liberty
- The 912 Projects
- Oath Keepers
- As A Mom
- Tea Party Patriots Inc.
Orly also claims the endorsement of the Republican Party of Lake County (population 65,279). I was unable to verify this claim. The Lake County Record-Bee web site returned no hits when searching for “Taitz,” nor did the Lake County News. Lake County Democrats are supporting Debra Bowen (duh). Obama defeated McCain 58% to 39% there in the 2008 election.
Orly also complained that Dr. Hugo Schwyzer withheld his endorsement and called her a “genuinely terrifying person.” Amen to that, brother.
Other candidates for California Secretary of State:
- Debra Bowen (Democrat)
- Damon J. Dunn (Republican)
- Ann Menasche (Green)
- Merton D. Short (American Independent)
- Christina M. Tobin (Libertarian)
- Marylou Cabral (Peace and Freedom)
