GOP group rejects Minuteman candidate - POLITICO.comThe first California Republican to announce his interest in running for governor is already running into serious intra-party resistance over his anti-illegal immigration stances.
The influential Lincoln Club of Orange County has released a statement opposing GOP Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, a former leader in the anti-illegal immigration group known as the Minutemen, who announced last week he would form an exploratory committee to run in 2014.
IMO, this is a welcome development. It is an early attempt to put aside angry, divisive, and unrealistic approaches that can only narrow the base of the GOP and undermine American conservatism. Instead, candidates should offer serious and constructive policy approaches.
