Congressman Tom McClintock is shown from his state Senate days.
Tom McClintock For Congress 2009
Orange County sheriff candidate Bill Hunt, who gets a showy show of support from Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim tonight, is not the only local office-seeker hoping for a campaign bump from an out-of-town darling of the anti-immigrant crowd.
Supervisor Chris Norby, who is seeking the state Assembly seat abandoned by Mike "Dripper" Duvall (R-Yorba Linda), hosts Congressman Tom McClintock (R-Granite Bay) in his Fullerton home Saturday morning.*
*CLARIFICATION: See reader's comment below about Norby's campaign promoting a precinct walk by mentioning McClintock's support, not an appearance by the NorCal congressman Saturday.
Watcher continues of McClintock: "He campaigned tirelessly for Proposition 187 and continued to speak out against the Gray Davis sellout in the courts. McClintock also co-sponsored a bill to end birthright citizenship."
Norby's deal runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in his home at 216 N. Yale Ave., Fullerton.
