DCCC LAUNCHES FIRST ATTACK IN THE NATION ON LEADING REPUBLICAN SHAWN NELSON IN CA-39
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Scared Of A Run-off Against Conservative Frontrunner, Target Shawn Nelson
ORANGE COUNTY – May 8 – The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) announced TV/radio ad hits against top Conservative, Shawn Nelson, to interfere in the CA-39 primary. Shawn Nelson is the biggest threat to the Democratic agenda being the strongest Conservative in the race. Nelson has racked up all of the major Republican endorsements from the California Republican Assembly, the Lincoln Club of Orange County, County Supervisors, and high profile federal endorsements.
Nelson is Orange County’s fiscal watchdog, fighting labor union’s abuse of the pension system and working to keep government small and out of our pockets. That’s why he’s earned the endorsement from California’s fiscal steward, State Senator John Moorlach, turning the false charge made in the DCCC’s attack on its head.
Chief Strategist for the Nelson campaign, John Thomas said, “The DCCC’s tactics are unsurprising. Shawn is THE Conservative in the race to beat. Democrats are clearly threatened by his presence and are trying to beat him down knowing that they wouldn’t stand a chance against him in a run-off.”
He continued, “As Republicans coalesce around Nelson, his growth in the race will be unstoppable. Shawn is ahead on the issues voters care about – solving veteran homelessness, ending sanctuary cities, and rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure. We will continue to be the Conservative choice that voters can depend on and are looking forward to winning in June.”
Nelson responded to the DCCC’s action, “The pattern of politics has been going on long enough to know that this was 100% predictable. I promised to reform Orange County’s pension system and I delivered my main campaign promise by bringing the lowest pension formula in the state and our employees pay the highest contribution rates in the state.”<< BACK TO MEDIA PAGE
