Fundraising work is never done

Drinks, politics, and Scott Peters

Douglas Manchester may be out as a Republican media baron, but the fundraising work of Democrat Scott Peters, who last year beat back GOP ex-city councilman Carl DeMaio in one of the region’s nastiest congressional races in recent history, is never done.

“Last week, we learned that one of the largest right-wing outside groups is spending $100,000 to attack my record. I need your help to make sure I have the resources I need to fight back and defend my record,” says an email message from Peters. “That’s why I’m asking you to join me at a fundraiser hosted by Leigh Plesniak and Eric Korevaar on Saturday, September 26th. Join me for drinks and discussion about how we can keep supporting our great community.”

Last year La Jolla Democrat Korevaar mounted a low-profile, anti-legislature campaign for California lieutenant governor against Democratic incumbent Gavin Newsom, getting a respectable 5.6 percent of the vote. “The proposed budget for California’s Legislature is $267 Million,” Korevaar noted on his campaign website.

“This comes to $2.9M per Senator and $1.9M per Assemblyperson, with no budget breakdown or public accountability for how the money is spent and how many people are on staff. We should all ask why this budget can’t be cut in half also.”


More local establishment Democrats are lining up for Gil Cabrera’s bid to become San Diego’s next city attorney, including two close allies of Qualcomm billionaire Irwin Jacobs: ex-GOP Assemblyman turned Democrat Nathan Fletcher and Lynn Schenk, the one-term congresswoman, Jerry Brown aide, and bullet train boardmember.

Republican ex–San Diego mayor Dick Murphy, who abruptly quit office with only a vague explanation in the midst of his term, is also along for the ride, according to a recent Cabrera news release.
