sticking together in tough times

  John: I know there’s a lot of anxiety over the Coronavirus. Besides those battling the virus, my heart aches for those that are losing work over this. I’m not sure if I can do anything for you, but if I can I’m here. Now is the time to reach out to those around us and do our best to h…

3pm Today

  John: My radio show resumes today on NewsRadio 600 KOGO - 3 to 6pm! I’ve missed using the show as our daily bully-pulpit to inform and engage voters in the fight to take back California. Today we’re talking Coronavirus and Gov Newsom’s Executive Order banning any event with 250 people…

THANK YOU - And Next Steps

  John: This is a hard email to write. With only a handful of votes left to be counted, our campaign has fallen short of making the runoff in the race for Congress. While I am disappointed, I am filled with two other emotions: gratitude for supporters like you and pride in the incredibl…

final request - I promise

  John: We have a problem as we enter our final 6 days of the campaign and I need your help to solve it! The latest polls show we have a small lead with a lot of undecided voters and to WIN we absolutely must turnout our votes using our door-to-door canvass program. We have 62 college s…

please don’t regret this

  John: I just reviewed our financial report and we are short. With just 6 days left in his race for Congress, the latest polling shows Carl DeMaio holding a NARROW lead but is short on funds for these final days! Carl needs our immediate help to keep that lead and win. If we do nothing…

need your name on this list

          John: we have some BIG news in Carl DeMaio’s race for Congress! President Trump and his allies KNOW how important it is to keep the 50th Congressional District in GOP hands — and they want a fighter like Carl DeMaio in this seat! Last night we were informed that Carl…

14-day notice (please respond)

  John: As finance manager for Carl DeMaio’s campaign for Congress, I just reconciled our budget to see what resources we have for the last 14 days of the campaign. Unfortunately, we are still 8% short of our budget - and need to bridge that gap immediately to make sure Carl has the fun…

FW: crushing blow

  John: I didn’t hear back from you on my email below. Can you please pitch in whatever you can to help Carl fight and win for us? If we want fighters in Congress and in California like Carl, we have to stand with them and help them - or we get stuck with do-nothing career politicians. …

crushing blow

  John: I need to share something very personal. Every time California politicians impose a new tax or pass another crazy law, we get angry and ask “who will fight back for us?” Then along comes Carl DeMaio to lead the fight — not just on the gas tax repeal, but against the Sanctuary St…

  John: My first positive TV ad started running yesterday. Can you watch it real quick and give me your honest gut reaction? Positive TV Ad: “Carl Is Our Fighter” It’s hard to cram everything I want to convey to voters into 30 seconds, but I wanted to remind voters of the fights we’ve w…

packet mailed to your house

our family reacts to the attack

you asked for this

  John -- how many times in the last year have you expressed frustration or disgust with the direction of politics in California? You’ve probably lost count. Today I need you to turn that into action -- and here’s why: As you know over five months ago I gave up my radio show (which I re…

          John -- this week, Carl DeMaio shot his first TV ad and we got a picture from the shoot (see below). Carl speaks direct to camera in front of a nice crisp clear white background so he can make a clear case against the Democrats’ mess in Congress and California. You a…

          John -- because of the holiday Monday, TV stations are requiring that Carl DeMaio’s campaign place its first TV buy before noon tomorrow to run next week. The bad news: we are short the funds we need to start our TV ad and our opponents are already on TV! The good ne…
