SB GOP sent out an email claiming I "wasn't the Republican" candidate in the 2020 3rd District Supervisors Race, when in fact I was the only Republican running in the 3rd District race. The SB GOP would not even interview me for an endorsement in 2016 or 2020. In 2020 I was also the only endorsed Pro-Life candidate on the Santa Barbara County ballot. The only true part of the email from the office of Bobbi McGinnis is that I did endorse the Democrat in 2016 over the "Decline to state" leftist Bruce Porter. I had watched him ruin our local HS Board with Common Core and pro-collectivist alliances. Porter retired from the military where he was a mid-level bean counter. The Local GOP paraded him around with his flag pin pretending he shared our pro-Individual Liberty, Personal Freedom values when I knew nothing could be further from the truth. While Porter did graduate from West Point, he was referred to the school by the author of the Southern Manifesto John McClennan, a Democrat Senator from Arkansas who gave Porter his first job in DC as a Senate Page. Here is the email sent out from Bobbi McGinnis' office: From: Bobbi McGinnis <c21bobbi@gmail.com> Date: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 3:21 PM Subject: Re: Karen Jones Email Karen Jones is not the Republican candidate for the 3rd District and it's for good reason. In 2016, the Party voted to endorse Bruce Porter, who ran as a Republican, displayed a clear vision for victory, and had a professional team together 6 months before the primary itself. His finish in the primary and close loss in the general made it clear he was the right choice. Despite our endorsement of Bruce Porter in 2016, Karen Jones decided to get in the race as a Republican as well. This was not a problem since there were 5 candidates in the ring, no one was going to win outright in that primary, and it's everyone's right to run for office. However, after coming in fourth in the primary, Karen Jones immediately decided to back far left, Democratic Party endorsed Joan Hartmann. She went so far as to throw a party, make Joan the guest of honor, and then shoot a commercial with her endorsement (link here to the full video and a screenshot of this video from Joan's campaign page as recently as two months ago). Joan opposes just about everything the Republican Party and common sense stands for, but Karen didn't hesitate to back her. Andy Caldwell conducted an interview with Karen Jones a few weeks ago and I've attached a clip here of one of his many issues with Karen's campaign. Andy doesn't believe that any self-respecting Republican could ever endorse Joan Hartmann, like Karen did, and the policies that she brings. Later in the program, Karen refused to say whether or not she would again endorse Joan if the race goes to November and is between Bruce Porter and Hartmann. We have a chance to win this election and shut down the Democratic Party in this county. And that's only with Bruce. Karen has actively fought against his campaign with unfounded lies and underhanded tactics, including illegally recording a private endorsement interview. That video is still public on her facebook page, despite her being asked repeatedly to take it down. I've attached a screenshot that demonstrates how Karen's friend sneakily hid the camera from everyone else in the room, because they knew it was illegal and amoral. This has no place in our county politics or in our party. I urge everyone, for the above issues and many more, to NOT vote for Karen Jones. Her behavior and her alignment with the Democratic Party Supervisor are disqualifying. Please let me know if you have any questions.
