OC Republicans Think Tom Campbell Is Running For Governor!

Earth to Republican Party of Orange County Chairman Scott Baugh

Your current online poll at the party's official website reads: "Who of the three leading GOP candidates for California's Governor are you leaning towards?"

Not far from the website's category "Stay Informed," they list the three candidates in this order: Tom Campbell, Steve Poizner and Meg Whitman.

Campbell--a longtime congressman--is actually running for the Republican nomination to challenge Democrat U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer in November. 

Okay. For you folks over at the OC GOP, let me spell this out for you: Campbell ain't running for governor.

But, alas, don't tell the readers of the OC GOP's website. Almost 20 percent of those participating in the poll say they are leaning to Campbell as the Republican choice for governor. 

Now, I better understand how Republican bad actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, arguably the worst governor in the state's history, won office.
