THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Charles Munger, Jr. pours cash into GOP campaigns

Charles Munger, Jr. offsets Democrat Union Money

(Sacramento Bee)  -  While attention was focused on the 36th and 65th Assembly districts – where Democratic members Steve Fox of Palmdale and Sharon Quirk-Silva of Fullerton are highly vulnerable this election – the California Republican Party was quietly expanding its efforts to pick up other legislative seats in moderate areas and break the Democrats’ legislative supermajority.
Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi, in particular, has been taking increasing heat lately. The Torrance Democrat trailed his Republican challenger,David Hadley, by 557 votes in the primary. Now Hadley, who received $150,000 from the state GOP on Monday, is on the offensive, teaming up with Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Assocation President Jon Coupal for a statewide press call today to denounce his opponent. 

Outside groups, including the California Republican Party and Charles Munger’s Spirit of Democracy committee, have spent more than $827,000 on the race since the beginning of the month, with more than $680,000 of that to support Hadley or oppose Muratsuchi.

66th Assembly District
The GOP has targeted their candidate David Hadley in the district.
Voter registration in the Los Angeles County district is 40% Democrat,
33% Republican and 27% independents and smaller political parties.

Things are also tightening in the 21st Assembly District. Though Assemblyman Adam Gray, D-Merced, holds a huge fundraising advantage over his Republican opponent Jack Mobley, who wasn’t even on the primary ballot, independent expenditure committees have reported more than $643,000 in spending since Oct. 7, most of it to support Mobley or oppose Gray.
There has even been action in the district of Assemblyman Ian Calderon, D-Whittier, where Democrats hold a 21-point registration advantage. On Oct. 10, the state GOP spent $30,000 on behalf of Republican challenger Rita Topalian, who won the primary by more than 1,000 votes, prompting the California Democratic Party to pump some money into the race for Calderon.
Over in the Senate, Republicans are trying to capitalize on the scandal surrounding termed-out Sen. Ron Calderon, D-Montebello, to make in-roads in his heavily Democratic Los Angeles-area community. More than $500,000 in outside money has poured into the race to replace him, which was not considered particularly competitive until recently.

The California Republican Party and wealthy GOP benefactor Charles Munger, Jr. have more than doubled their independent efforts in the heavily Democratic 32nd Senate District in Los Angeles County, pouring in more than $230,000 for TV ads and mailers on Wednesday.
