Conservative Group New Majority Endorses Fletcher

Since announcing his candidacy for mayor, Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, a Republican, has received praise from all sorts of unlikely sources. Alt-weekly San Diego CityBeat praised Fletcher for his pragmatism, despite giving "boos" for his support of managed competition, and Comprehensive Pension Reform.

Adding to that, recently Fletcher joined Council President Tony Young in an effort to have City Hall help improve local schools; fairly strange position for a registered Republican.

And yet, despite his moderate leanings, even staunch conservative groups have decided to endorse Fletcher over more conservative leaning candidates Carl DeMaio and Bonnie Dumanis. On Thursday, the local chapter of national political action committee, New Majority, whose mission includes electing Republicans to the White House and Senate, announced their endorsement of Fletcher.

In a statement to the Rancho Bernardo Patch, New Majority board member Jonathan Bullen also praised Fletcher for his approach. "He has a proven record of success and has shown that he has a unique ability to bring people together to get the job done. Nathan has the high level leadership skills and pragmatic experience needed to move San Diego into a new era and brighter future."

"I am honored to receive the endorsement of the New Majority. This endorsement is further evidence that San Diegans are ready for a new generation of leadership not tied to the polarization or status quo nature that defines City Hall," stated Fletcher of the endorsement.

Wonder if Hizzoner and sidekick DeMaio enjoy being called leaders (although I choke on applying the term to them) "tied to the polarization or status quo nature that defines City Hall,..."

Maybe that's why they look so grim and constipated in their photo on the New Majority Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=283921391619660&set=a.214580455220421.58385.138225789522555&type=1&theater

Gosh, all the worst of the worst on NM FB! http://www.facebook.com/TheNewMajority?sk=photos
