As a life-long Democrat, I’m voting for an independent candidate in the June 5th Primary; 49th Congressional District candidate, Dick Eiden.
I encourage you to vote for independent Dick Eiden too. Here’s why:
1. A Democrat cannot win the General election in our district, but an independent really has a chance!
Think about it: the 49th Congressional District, which stretches north and south, from San Juan Capistrano to Torrey Pines, splits around 60% Conservative and 40% Liberal. The incumbent, Darrell Issa, is well-known, and popular amongst his base. The default vote will likely be 60% for Mr. Issa.
Believe it or not, the Democratic Party has already written-off this race as unwinnable. There will be no money from the Dem Party if the Democrat wins the Primary. And, there is an important point of weakness for Darrell Issa – There is a strong anti-incumbent fervor this election cycle and the independent vote is the hot ticket right now! Formerly Untouchable candidates are losing in primaries because voters of all political persuasions have shown they want change.
In this year’s Primary, Democrats need not fear they will be splitting the vote by choosing independent candidates. Many voters in this district want change and therefore will NOT vote for a Democrat – No way! No how! But they can and will vote for a highly qualified independent for Congress.
2. A Democrat vs. Issa campaign from now until the General election will be old news!
Those who typically vote the Dem ticket don’t want to witness yet another Democratic “talking points” vs. Republican “lip-flapping,” boring political theatre. We Dems have woken up! It’s time to seize the moment and vote independent.
Contrast the status quo with an underdog, locally known, wild-card independent candidate running against the “invincible” Mr. Issa. Independent candidate, Dick Eiden will not be constrained by any party rules of engagement. He’s free to voice his opinion – and call Darrell Issa to task for all of his foibles. The Dick Eiden for Congress campaign is something for the history books!
3. Dick Eiden is the best candidate and will better represent the people of the 49th District
There is no comparison between Dick Eiden and the Democratic candidate regarding which is better qualified to head to Washington DC. As an attorney, Mr. Eiden has taken on tough legal cases, which pit him against strong adversaries. With this experience, he is ready to take on the entrenched power structure in DC. He’s experienced internationally and domestically, and he is willing and able to lead when the going gets tough. As an outsider, he has the ability to take on the corruption of power in Washington DC.
