  1. Larry Briggs Larry Briggs says:

    The remaining 27.8% voted Republican.

    • Steve Spear Steve Spear says:

      And what does that mean Larry? Are you trying to say that the remaining 27.8 percent will vote Republican without thought to the consequences or benefits.

      I am so tired of this doctrinal viewpoint by both parties without regard to actually who is a leader and who are simply parrots and pretty faces that collect money from special interest groups.

  2. Ed Montgomery Ed Montgomery says:

    Let’s talk realistically, Karalee Hargrove cannot win the 42nd Assembly District. Come this November Chad Mayes will win the 42nd assembly seat. Unfortunately for me , I cannot in good conscience vote for a Democrat but on the other hand , I cannot support Chad Mayes , because I find him to be part of the problem not the solution. In my opinion, he’s part of the sky harbor group and the special interests group. So come November I will sit this one out and will not vote for the 42nd assembly. I strongly feel Chad Mayes will win the assembly seat by 55 % or more.

    • Ed, it’s myopic to say you cannot cannot in good conscience vote for a Democrat. That is thinking inside the box. Local government has less to do with party affiliation, but more to do with candidates viewpoint on issues. I am not a Republican. But I cross party lines.

      • Steve Spear Steve Spear says:

        Amen to that.

        That is like me saying I would not have voted for Ronald Reagan because he was a Republican or FDR because he was a Democrat.

        Egads what gives with these people that can’t see that it is less party divisiness that we need not more.

        Vote for the BEST people not who the party tells you are the best people or because you somehow think anyone from THAT party must be evil, bad, or on a different philosophical course which is devious…. YIKES!

      • Ed Montgomery Ed Montgomery says:

        Branson Hunter since 1976 I have not voted for Democrats, especially in state and national elections. But I kind of agree with you for local elections in some cases there are exceptions to the rules. For example for the town Council of Yucca Valley , I am a big supporter of Ron Cohen , who is a Democrat, that’s only because I have worked with him in the recall , and I know exactly what his positions are personally. Otherwise , I stick to the no democratic rule.

  3. Ed Montgomery Ed Montgomery says:

    As a Republican I don’t always agree with my parties beliefs, but on the other hand , it’s the closest party that I can find that have most of my beliefs and I understand your position, you vote for the person , not the party. But normally most of all the candidates I vote for have my strong beliefs in about 95% of the time , but in this particular case , there are more factors than usual , and I happen to know what
    Chad Mayes beliefs are and that’s the reason why I am not supporting

    • Okay, thanks Ed. Now the question becomes who would you rather have in Sacramento representing your interests: Slick Chad Mayes, or new comer Karalee Hargrove?
