Video: Tom McClintock endorses Chuck DeVore

May 17, 2010

California congressman Tom McClintock, a powerful figure on the Right in this state, has cut a video carrying his endorsement of Assemblyman Chuck DeVore in his race for the Republican nomination for the US Senate. While lacking Governor Palin’s cachet, one hopes that McClintock’s blessing, coming from someone who knows California politics very well, will carry a lot of weight with Republican voters:

Tom McClintock represents one of my great political regrets of recent years, having cast my vote in the 2003 gubernatorial recall election instead for Arnold Schwarzenegger.  There are few do-overs in politics, but this time I plan to make up for it by voting conviction over star-power.
