Rep. Ed Royce Scores City Council Endorsement

Ed Royce 39th.jpg
Thanks to California redistricting, Rep. Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) is in the midst of the political fight of his life.

In November's election, Royce--the brainiest member of Orange County's congressional delegation--faces Gary Miller, another current, Republican representative, for the right to serve the newly-drawn 39th district (portions of Orange County, Los Angeles and San Bernardino) in the nation's capital.

The independently wealthy Miller--who constantly seems on the verge of an FBI corruption indictment--has a war chest advantage over Royce, who is a sensational campaign fundraiser, but the Fullerton politician recently got an election boost.

The entire Walnut city council recently decided to endorse him, according to a Royce press release.

You may be saying, "So what?"

Perhaps, it's nothing big. But the folks of south east Los Angeles County, where Walnut is located, are more familiar with Miller. He's represented portions of that region for years.

Royce, an Orange County resident, said in a prepared statement that he's been picking up "considerable support" in the Los Angeles area, including Supervisor Don Knabe.

I didn't realize he was still holding his seat!

I thought since he took over the blog (R) he was just picking up where I left off.

Speaking of picking up where others left off: Gustavo, did you see where your filthy cohorts are disparaging the soon to be "Saint Mother Thereasa", just because like me and Brownie we looked the other way during a little ATM session with some young men. We understand that the Church is more important than a young mans anal virginity. Something you just don't get.

Anyway, good luck to Rep. Royce, hopefully he keeps up his call to kill Muslims and bomb Iran.


Miller has been my congressman for years and I say "Dont let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya!"

Royce may be politicking but he has been ever present in a nasty battle my city is waging against SCE and he's not even our congressman... Miller cant be bothered to even comment.
