TV Ad Calling Tony Strickland an Ultra Conservative

House Majority PAC’s Ad – “Stripes”

Former Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s House Majority PAC is up with a new television spot attacking California State Senator and CA-26 Republican Congressional candidate Tony Strickland for being a what – an “Ultra-Conservative.”

The problem with the ad is that Tony Strickland is a conservative and so is the Ventura County based 26th Congressional district.

Here is the breakdown of the CA-26’s demographics.

Even the Decline to State voters are conservative in this District.

This ad carries the same old LIBRUL themes: my opponent is an Right-Wing extremist, wants to take abortion away from women, hates stem-cell research and cancer patients and generally is a corrupt corporation supporting miscreant who wants to send YOUR job overseas.

Don’t think it will work.

Here is the ad (embedded below):

Julia Brownley and Tony Strickland

CA-26 Congressional candidates Democrat Julia Brownley and Republican Tony Strickland

This won’t be the first time the two Congressional candidates have faced off against each other at California Lutheran University (CLU). But, here are the details for next Tuesday’s debate which, unlike the forum in May, is one on one.

The forum will be from 7-9 p.m. at the Lundring Events Center in the Gilbert Sports and Fitness Center at the Thousand Oaks campus. About 200 preticketed audience members will be admitted, and the event will be broadcast live on radio station KCLU. C-SPAN will televise the forum, but a network official said no decision has been made on whether to show it live.

The forum is co-sponsored by CLU, The Star and Pacific Coast Business Times.

If you would like a preview of the debate, here is a video when Strickland and Brownley faced off in May, also at CLU.

Comments Comments Off on CA-26: Tony Strickland and Julia Brownley to Debate Next Tuesday


California Assemblywoman Julia Brownley speaking

Timm Herdt over at the Ventura County Star has the FLAP – and what a specious and idiotic one it is.

Because separate $2,500 contributions from two New York bankers to Republican congressional candidate Tony Strickland apparently were initially declined by the bankers’ credit card companies, a dispute has arisen over their legality, leading Democrat Julia Brownley on Thursday to file a formal complaint with the Federal Elections Commission.

Brownley says the donations exceed allowable limits because contributions from Matt Doheny and David Hilty, executives with New York investment firms, were reported as received by Strickland on June 28, after California’s June 5 primary. That election whittled the field in the new 26th Congressional District to Strickland and Brownley.

How ridiculous with the California economy in the dumper, high unemployment and significant issues to be decided in foreign policy, health care and defense, OUT OF TOWNLEY Julia Brownley has staffers pouring over minutia in campaign finance reports.

I guess the OUT OF TOWNER and I say that since the California Assemblywoman Brownley moved from her Los Angeles County home in Santa Monica to Oak Park which is in the Congressional District 26 when she filed for election, has nothing better to do with her time but bitch and moan.

How about some issue discussion, Julia?

I mean better than your attack ads on television that try to paint California State Senator Tony Strickland as a “hater” of women.

It is specious and ludicrous complaints like this that dissuade people from the political process. People are tired of the BS.

Thanks to the commenter at the Ventura County Star with the moniker: “OUT OF TOWNLEY BROWNLEY.”

I am voting for a full-time Ventura County resident for Congress = Tony Strickland.

Screencap of Julia Brownley ad

I noticed the ad first this morning on Chuck Todd’s political show on MSNBC. And, it has since repeated.

The ad looks much like the generic, “get to know who I am ad”, which highlights that she is supported by public employee unions and abortion providers – pretty typical stuff for California Democrats.

The video has not been posted up on You Tube yet, but I suppose the campaign is just behind. I will post it in an update, when it arrives.

The ad buy was fairly modest and there were two:

  • August 29 – September 6: 229 spots for about $10K
  • September 7 – September 11: 84 spots for a little over 4K

You can check out the ad buys for yourself, since they are public. Here is the link to Time Warner Cable which has the vast majority of the Cable TV action here in Ventura County.

Brownley’s opponent, Republican California State Senator Tony Strickland is already up with television advertising, having beat Brownley “on air.”

A Tony Strickland staff member has confirmed that this mysterious woman in black has been seen at numerous Strickland events:

So, who is this woman? And, who is paying her to take the video?

Anybody know?

You remember the FLAP?

Well, who is tracking and stalking California State Senator and CA-26 Republican congressional candidate Tony Strickland?

Nobody is admitting it, but the national Democratic Party folks at the DCCC have a reputation of doing it. Now, is Brownley’s campaign paying for the deed?

Hard to say and it may be difficult to trace, but my best guess is that this activity would not be going on without Brownley’s direct approval.

Nobody has come forward to identify the young woman and some Democratic activists have taken to Twitter to say that the woman in Thousand Oaks – see her photo below was merely a parent at the children’s event.

Brownley Spy CA 26: Is Julia Brownley or the DCCC Stalking Tony Strickland?

Unidentified videographer at California State Senator Tony Strickland Children’s I.D. Event in Thousand Oaks, Saturday August 25, 2012


You see the woman in the photo above and in this embedded video below was seen videotaping Senator Tony Strickland during his Ventura beach clean-up day on July 28th.

So, obviously, this woman is either a BIG fan of Tony Strickland, a paid operative of the DCCC or the Julia Brownley campaign or somebody with whom the police maybe wish to have a chat.

Here is the video of the mysterious woman in black:

Anyone know this person?

I understand from good sources that this person has been seen videotaping at other Tony Strickland events. So, if anyone can identify her, please, let me know in the comments below.

What is the FLAP here – besides the fact that an elected official is being stalked?

Trackers or videographers are not uncommon in Congressional campaigns today. However, this was a Children’s I.D. Event.

Yesterday was NOT a Congressional campaign event, but a public service one in conjunction with Strickland’s California State Senate office. Why would the Brownley campaign want to be associated with such an obviously ridiculous observation? And, why involve the children?

If the Browney campaign was associated with yesterday’s stalker, they should apologize to the families of the children who were videotaped. If the DCCC was involved, then the Brownley campaign should tell them to exert some restraint.

Julia Brownley may be an LA Woman (from Santa Monica actually), but we don’t do politics like this in Thousand Oaks – because we aren’t LA.

Hey, California Assemblywoman Julia Brownley, is this person doing some political tracking of Senator Strickland for you? Again, anyone know this woman and for whom she is working?

Let me know in the comments below.
