The three Democrats in the race campaigning for the newly created AD-11 seat will be in San Diego this weekend seeking the official endorsement of the Democratic Party for the June 5 primary. This should go to Jim Frazier based on his landslide 96% a few weeks ago at the pre-endorsement conference in Sacramento, but you never know what may happen. Click here to see the official pre-endorsement list results.
Endorsing caucuses will take place on Saturday February 11th. Ratification of endorsement recommendations will take place on Sunday, February 12th. California Democratic Party’s State Convention will be held in San Diego from February 10 to 12, 2012.
Jim Frazier Launches Website
Campaign Frazier has taken the approach of People Before Politics as a campaign theme—I have to admit, it has a nice sound to it. More importantly, those who look into his accomplishments for the City and non-profits and donated time will realize he can backs up the campaign statement.

Len Augustine Announces Kick Off Event

Patricia Hernandez Takes to Facebook
Ms. Hernandez appears to be reaching voters via her campaign facebook page. My only beef with her is how she is reaching out to people by playing identity politics which is pretty pathetic. I am all for being proud of heritage, but you are representing the entire district, not just Hispanics and women.
A recent post states the following:
“The Latino Legislative Caucus has just endorsed my campaign! I have the distinctive honor of being the only Latina, non-incumbent candidate who has received this honor.” – Tuesday at 5:32pm via mobile.
I am just not a fan of anyone who plays just the identity politic card. I cannot support it.
Gene Gantt Somewhat Silent
There is no information or recent articles about his campaign since I posted how much funding was raised, but he did make a post via his campaign Facebook page which stated the following on Feb. 1, 2012.
“With the release of the campaign finance reports, it’s clear that we have a real chance to win in AD11. We’re right on the heels of some folks that have been in this race for far longer, and it won’t be long before we’ve passed them up. A huge thanks to all of my supporters so far – let’s keep the momentum going!”
