New Slate on the Scene

To those watching carefully, this morning’s Capitol Morning Report held a very interesting piece of news: social conservatives have launched a new slate card “The Family, Faith, and Freedom Association.”

Being led according to CMR by Doug Swardstrom (political liaison to uber-contributor Howard Ahmanson), Mark Bucher (close friend and confidant of Scott Baugh), and Larry Smith (leader of Orange County's Family Action PAC), this could be a major player in upcoming primary battles.

Many attempts are made annually to launch new slate cards, with most failing miserably. But with a power-trio like these three behind this latest project, I don’t think I’m wandering too far out on a limb to assume that this one will most definitely succeed.

I am curious what the game plan is for this group. I’d appreciate hearing from anybody with some insight into this???

Actually, this is not a new slate. They did do a mailing last November.

A new slate is the California Club for Growth voter Guide. It hasn't officially been launched, but it will within the next month. You heard it hear first from California Campaigns.

The slate will be managed by B Park Consulting, who also manages Save Prop 13., Nonpartisan Candidate Evaluation Council, & OC Firefighters voter guide.
