ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (Oct 15,2007)–The Lincoln Club Board of Directors last Friday unanimously endorsed Hon. Diane Harkey, Mayor of Dana Point, for the 73rd Assembly District.
Harkey is running for the seat that would be vacated by current Assemblywoman Mimi Walters if Walters is elected to the 33rd Senate District seat.

Lincoln Club primary endorsements are rare. The Club’s bylaws prohibit the Club from endorsing in primary or general elections where two or more Republicans are running, unless approved by three-fourths of the Board of Directors. Harkey is running unopposed, and since the Club endorsed and supported here primary campaign for the 35th District of the State Senate, the Board unanimously voted to endorse her.

“Diane Harkey is a proven conservative, and is the best candidate to represent South Orange County,” said Lincoln Club President Richard K. Wagner. “We can count on her to stand with other Republicans in the State Legislature to hold the line on spending and to be an advocate for the business community.”

Founded in 1962, the Lincoln Club of Orange County is an association of business men and women and professionals who support candidates and causes to limit the size of government, and promote low taxes and pro-business policies. More info:

Juice readers. To avoid any question let me advise all that I endorsed Diane in her race for the Senate seat and endorse her in this race as well.

Last year Diane and the Dana Point city council passed a Resolution against the use of eminent domain.
