Righeimer for Assembly!

With all the brouhaha last week about the drama in SD34, there is another aspect of the race that certainly will get the rumor mill – at least behind the Orange Curtain – going.

That is, if Van is the nominee, who replaces Van?

As of this writing, the conventional wisdom is that Freshman Garden Grove Councilwoman Janet Nguyen would step into Van’s seat. She is young, ambitious, and as a boost to her for this seat, she is Vietnamese.

However, I’d like to throw out another name – Jim Righeimer. Jim, as many know, is a conservative OC-insider, a former co-author of Prop 226 (the original Paycheck Protection Initiative), and a Board Member of the Family Action PAC. Jim’s legacy includes having lost to Tom Harman for Assembly in the Open Primary era, whereby Jim drew considerably more Republican votes, but because of his attractiveness to Democrats, Harman squeezed out a narrow victory.

Now, 6 years later, Jim has made a good living for himself, and could be itching for another shot at the Assembly.

From where I sit, it would be a welcome addition to the Assembly GOP Caucus.

So, I say, let’s draft Righeimer for Assembly!

While being a great guy, Righeimer isn't running and probably can't be coaxed into. Let's not take our eye of the Tran/Daucher ball and start a fight between conservative factions when we already have a hard core conservative like Nguyen that will run for the 68th.

He needs to pay the printing bill from his first campaign before he ever thinks about running again.
Stiffing your local vendors is not kosher.

How about running for Fountain Valley City Council or School Board first...they could use some new blood.

Let's get rid of Larry Crandall!!!

Sadly none of this will come to pass as Van Tran probably isn't running.

Janet is any kind of conservative, let alone a hardcore one?

I've known her for some time, and this is news to me.

And I hear that Janet is agressive...maybe a little too agressive. Candidates like that usually self-destruct. Anybody know how she's doing with her job as VP of Gov't Affairs for the Long Beach Chamber?
