If I'm doing my math right a lot of the candidates have spent more than they have taken in, so at the very least they have one attribute that would make them qualified for office.

Voters in the 12th Senate District need to visit the Cal-Access Internet website to view how much money is going into the coffers of the Friends of Jeff Denham Against the Recall.

It is illuminating that Mettee-McCutchon is now running constant negative, personal attack ads on TV attacking Jane Parker. What's next: Mettee-McCutchon answering the phone at 3:00 A.M.? Let's keep this type of politician out of Monterey County.

The district 4 campaign finance figures indeed tell a lot. What they don't show in this article is that a good part of the Monterey Business PAC contribution also came from Schied Vineyards. These latest numbers seem to explain why Ila's campaign went negative this week with their new ads. The business interests financing her run for this seat want to turn this race into a referendum on LandWatch and nothing else.

I got two negative pieces from the Jane Parker camp and a personal call attacking Mettee-McCutchon. I've seen Mettee-McCutchon's ad and it only restates what was printed in the Herald. Parker's campaign has no class.

I have received numerous phone calls from Jane phone bankers and I personally encountered them on my door steps clearly trying to pass of fabrications of the truth. Ila's add only elaborated what the Herald already made clear - Jane Parker has a conflict of interest. There was no mudd slinging or lies put out by Ila's camp! Atleast what she puts out is factual.

Why would Ms. McCutchon send out a "Democratic Voting Guide" which lists Sam Farr, No on 98, Yes on 99, and frame it as a voting guide for Democrats-when she is a conservative Republican?
Not once has she owned up to her party affiliation nor is it listed on her website anywhere-curious, eh?
The lowest point of the campaign thus far has been the race baiting flier by McCutchon's campaign that was sent out with Beryl Smith's signature on it. I did not agree with Jerry Smith's politics, especially as he came from the most corrupt agency in state government-corrections-but he alway seemed to be a gentleman. I believe he would be disgusted with the low level of politics Ms. McCutchon has sunk to...pages right out of the Karl Rove playbook.

Ila is a Republican, but not a conservative--she's pro-choice, for example. Her proper designation is RINO--Republican in Name Only.

Please. Just because she is pro-choice does not make her not a Republican. One issue does not unmake a party affliation.
