GOP San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer, who has generally sworn off seeking higher office anytime soon, is popping up August 15 to sing his own praises at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.
“He has focused on improving infrastructure, reducing homelessness and creating neighborhood safety initiatives,” claims the invitation. “Faulconer has maintained his desire to stay in the city, but Republicans in California are eager to put forward strong candidates for the gubernatorial race in 2018. Bring your questions as one of California’s rising stars joins us at The Commonwealth Club for a conversation on the new face of California Republicanism.” Tickets can be had for between $8 and $35.
Meanwhile, San Diego Democrats are using Donald Trump to generate business for a seven-night December fundraising cruise from L.A. to Mexico.
“After a tough year, it’s time for some R&R and I have just the thing!” emails past party chairwoman Francine Busby. I hope that you will join me on the DEM Cruise to the Mexican Riviera featuring special guests Markos Moultsis, founder of Daily Kos and Dr. George Lakoff, distinguished cognitive linguist and author of Don’t Think of an Elephant.”
