|Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,|
It is so difficult to recap the week, or even the last few days. Bill Barr has now been condemned by how many Justice Dept. attorneys? Are the Republicans completely tone deaf? I read a terrifying article in Business Insider about Authoritarianism and the Republican party and I wonder, do the Republicans just not care anymore? How could they even consider that this is ok? So now, more than ever, we must Keep the House, Elect the Senate and Win the Presidency. This is our mantra for the next 8-1/2 months. (I also read a nice article in NY Magazine about how Obama is hanging back in his endorsements until the Convention, for anyone who is interested:-)
At last week's meeting, we had an informative presentation from the Registrar of Voters office about voting. Voting is easy, by mail and at Voting Centers. NPP's can vote as Democrats if they request a ballot. Please, if you have any questions, contact the Registrar or reply to this email and we will get them answered. We must have a good turnout to win. And please read more below about down ballot races!
I cannot tell you how excited we are....at our next meeting we are going to welcome one of our most popular speakers...
UCI Political Science and Law
Professor Tony Smith
When Tony was here last year and he had us rapt and in STITCHES and we all envied those UCI students who are lucky enough to take his classes.

There will be time for questions after his talk, which is entitled
"A Guide For The Perplexed, The Disillusioned, The Desperate And The Not-Yet-Deported.
