Tony Strickland endorsed by ENTIRE Senate GOP Caucus and by Ventura County GOP

From the way that Tony Strickland’s campaign for California State Senate is gearing up, you would almost think that that he is listed as “incumbent” on the ballot. But, of course, he is not. The incumbent, Senator Tom McClintock, is retiring next year as term limits prevents him from seeking a third Senate term.

Today the ENTIRE 15-member State Senate Republican Caucus endorsed former Assemblyman Strickland in his bid to succeed McClintock.

Strickland’s State Senate endorsement page is here.

His California State Senate website is here.

Flap’s analysis is the same as in January of this year:

This move by Tony Strickland was well-anticipated in Ventura County, California GOP politics.

Strickland is the front-runner and ANY thoughts that Mike Stoker, a field representative for current California State Senator, Tom McClintock are DELUSIONS of GRANDEUR.

Look for an uncontested February (written before current legislation) June 2008 GOP primary election for this seat and for Tony Strickland to be the next State Senator.

If anyone thinks that Strickland will not be the next State Senator from representing Thousand Oaks, they must be Jim Dantona NUTS.

FlashReport: Tony Strickland looks to follow Tom McClintock into the State Senate

Last night, I had the opportunity to sit next to Tony and Audra Strickland at the wedding reception of a mutual friend. Tony, of course, is a former State Assemblyman and was the GOP nominee for State Controller last year. His wife, Audra, currently represents the 37th Assembly District as a member of the California legislature.

In chatting with Tony, he shared with me that on Friday, he had opened up a campaign committee and will be seeking the Republican nomination to succeed State Senator Tom McClintock in that Ventura County-based district, that stretches up into Santa Barbara County. Needless to say, the Strickland name has become quote familiar to residents in that area, and Tony becomes the immediate front-runner. His recent run for State Controller has helped to keep his name ID ‘current’ in the minds of voters — in addition to having his wife, Audra, serving as the State Assemblywoman for much of the district.

This move by tony Strickland was well-anticipated in Ventura County, California GOP politics.

Strickland is the front-runner and ANY thoughts that Mike Stoker, a field representative for current California State Senator, Tom McClintock are DELUSIONS of GRANDEUR.

Look for an uncontested February 2008 GOP primary election for this seat and for Tony Strickland to be the next State Senator.

Stay tuned…….
