The Lockyer Endorsement
Here's another one of those empty campaign tactics the Gallegos campaign is using. About the only thing we keep hearing from them is that Gallegos represents the people and the continued mention that crime is at it's lowest level in the last so many years.
This, despite the fact that a District Attorney has little, if anything, to do with how much crime takes place in a community and every candidate likes to throw out the represents the people line.
Now we see the usual campaign stunt of getting someone who probably wouldn't recognize Gallegos if he saw him on the street, giving him a glowing endorsement. I think we all know how this came about:
Some of the local Democrats contacted the State Attorney General's office or, more likely, went through their channels at the state level to get a fellow Democrat in higher office to endorse their pet candidate.
I can't just pick on the Gallegos campaign for doing that, as it's a common tactic used in nearly every campaign. Doesn't really mean much in the real world, as far as how good the candidate in question really is.
It would be nice if the Gallegos campaign could come up with something a little more meaningful to run their campaign on because, so far, they haven't got anything.
