I’ve been told now by dozens of people that there is plenty of unpleasantness about a blog that covers local political issues, especially by someone who isn’t a political science expert. There is one good thing, however, and that is that I’m not opposed to publishing a rumor as a topic for discussion, so long as the source is a credible one.
I’ve learned this morning that Bob Huber, Candidate for Mayor of Simi Valley, will be getting the endorsement of the Ventura County Republican Central Committee. For any Republican Candidate running for local office, this is a huge honor. This endorsement rounds out several recent high profile endorsement announcements, including the Simi Valley POA and the Ventura County Firefighters Association. Bob Huber is now being supported by the organization that supports other high profile Republican candidates like State Senator Tony Strickland (for State Controller) and Candidate Carly Fiorina for United States Senate.
This will surely turn a few heads and generate some discussions among unsure voters on what’s been a very competitive and seemingly close race so far. I welcome your thoughts and comments on what this means for the Simi Valley Mayors race.
