Tom McClintock endorses Chris Norby

Supervisor Chris Norby has landed a big endorsement in his race to replace disgraced Assemblyman Mike Duvall, in the 72nd Assembly District.  Norby has picked up the support of Congressman Tom McClintock, who like Norby is a Libertarian-leaning tax-fighter.

In related news, Norby’s opponent, Linda Ackerman, is in some hot water.  Shey may have to step down from her post as RNC Committeewoman.  “Under Section 2.03.01(B) of the California Republican Party’s bylaws, any person who holds elected office  at the county, state or federal level — or is a candidate for office at that level — “shall not be eligible to seek or hold a regular elected office” of the California GOP. The section goes on to state that once an official in the California Republican Party becomes a candidate at the county, state or federal level he loses his position with the Republican Party,” accordingn to Total Buzz.

Here is Norby’s press release:
