CRA Convention Spin Machine

One of the blogs is going crazy over the CRA convention trying to spin who won and who lost.

Let's unspin the events:

1. Ray Haynes was expected to get the CRA endorsement. Ray's campaign goal was to get the CRA endorsement and it wasn't their goal to "block" the endorsement.

2. Michelle Steel's goal was to block the CRA endorsement (of course the campaign was saying that they were going for the endorsement but I am sure the insiders were just going for a block).

Would the Steel campaign been happy with the endorsement? Yes. Was the amount of money they spent (registering delegates, paying staff, and hospitality suite) worth it to get a block? Yes.

Winner: Michelle Steel Campaign

Reading some of the posts from HnF, there were some comments made about a shouting match between Brandon Powers (YAF Chairman) and Assemblyman Ray Haynes. Anyone want to enlighten us?

Haynes acted like a child. That fits with the age of the person he is dating so at least he is consistent.

It seems like Ray Haynes is his own biggest enemy.

If Ray didn't lose his temper at the Young Republican meeting, the board would have not endorsed Michelle.

I am told that Ray would have gotten the endorsement of the CRA if he didn't blow up on the College Student.

I love Ray Haynes and his endorsement of Cristi Cristich. His victory would show progress!

We didn't lose the Academy award tonight. You see, Crash just paid a bunch of delegates to the Academy and we were successful enough to win some of the other lesser Academy Awards.

Advantage Brokeback!

The sad thing is Ray probably would have gotten far more endorsements and support if he stood up like a man and just backed Devore.

Christi Cristich is his albatross. Ray could have walked right into the BOE. Now, he is in a fight for his political life.
