A money play against Horton?
|If you "follow the money" it sure looks like legislative Democrats are trying to target Assemblywoman Shirley Horton's seat. Her challenger, Maxine Sherard, just received $125,000 from the San Luis Obispo County Democratic Central Committee. Meanwhile San Diego Dems dumped in another $85,000. Also this month, the Legislative Black Coalition launched a $50,000 independent expenditure.|
Correction:The first posting here identified an IE from Indian tribes against Horton. In fact, the IE was for Horton. One of the tribal IE accounts had $800,000 in it from the Sycuan Band of Kumeyaay Nation, and had only spent a small amount so far, mainly on Horton (another $7,000 went to Audra Strickland).
