Carona fails to secure the Repulican Party of Orange County endorsement

This just in from tonight’s Republican Party of Orange County Central Committee meeting – Lupe Moreno, Rosie Avila and Costa Mesa Mayor Alan Mansoor spoke on behalf of Bill Hunt and Kermit Marsh, Erin Runyon, and Jon “My Finger Slipped” Fleischman spoke on behalf of Carona. When the smoke cleared, Carona was unable to secure an endorsement from the Central Committee. Hunt also could not get enough votes, but clearly the night was a victory for his team. Kudos to Tim Whitacre for pulling this off!

In related news, a judge denied the Carona team’s attempt to censure Bill Hunt’s candidate statement. He will be allowed to remind voters that Carona’s reign has been scandalous. Again – kudos to Whitacre for rebuffing the unethical “Caronistas.”
