Assemblyman Chuck DeVore has seen his support in CA strengthen among Republicans as Fiorina’s support has decreased.  A recent field poll shows DeVore only 1 pt behind Fiorina, 21-20% among Republicans.  This same poll had Fiorina previously ahead by 12 pts.  While a lot of work remains to be done against both Fiorina and Boxer, the numbers are very promising showing that money and name recognition will not automatically carry Carly to the nomination.  A true conservative, can ideed win again.

Chuck DeVore has made over 160 campaign stops in California proving he is working hard to earn the votes of Californians.

Sent from the DeVore campaign communications team today.

“The numbers in today’s Field Poll affirm trends we’ve been aware of throughout the year: Chuck DeVore’s support continues to deepen and grow, Carly Fiorina’s support continues to drop — by nearly a third since the last Field Poll in March — and Barbara Boxer continues to be among the most vulnerable Democrats in the United States Senate.

“When Chuck DeVore announced his candidacy in November 2008, he was a comparatively unknown fiscal-conservative Assemblyman from Orange County, California. Less than a year later, he is at polling parity with a well-known multimillionaire with over a decade of national-press exposure to her credit. When this campaign began, conventional wisdom said that Carly Fiorina was better known, better against Boxer, better able to field a strong campaign team, and better able to unify the party.

“All those beliefs are now discredited by the lackluster performance of the Fiorina ‘exploratory’ campaign.

“Chuck DeVore has been out with the people of California for months, driving himself from community to community, speaking with them, listening to them, and promising to fight for them. He has been to nearly two hundred campaign events and spoken directly with thousands of Californians. That’s one of many reasons his polling parity with Fiorina is such bad news for her. Thousands of Chuck’s supporters are supporters because they have seen and spoken with him — and that’s why his numbers steadily rise. By contrast, Carly Fiorina has avoided speaking directly to Republicans, except in rare, private, and stage-managed appearances — and the occasional online failure of national renown. That’s why her numbers steadily drop.

“In other words, the difference between DeVore’s support and Fiorina’s is the difference between a strong, deep, and growing movement — and a shallow, media-driven, and purchased ephemera. As this campaign continues, Republicans interested in defeating Barbara Boxer will find the choice between the two increasingly easy.”

Quoting one of our volunteer leaders, “It’s easy when you are working for the HARDEST working man or woman in politics.” I could not agree more.

I’m so proud to be volunteering for this man. He reminds me of Fred Thompson, with the “fire in the belly” to sprint through the finish line!
