McClintock Won´t Back Down

The campaign director for Republican state Senator Tom McClintock says the gubernatorial candidate is in the recall race “not only to the finish line” but intends to seek re-election to the governorship.

John Feliz also discounted Senate minority leader Jim Brulte’s endorsement yesterday of Arnold Schwarzenegger and referred to Republican Congressman Darrell Issa as a congressional backbencher.

Issa, who bankrolled the effort to recall Governor Davis, said Monday he’d urge voters to reject the recall if one of the leading Republican candidates, Schwarzenegger or McClintock, didn’t drop out of the race.

Feliz said “We´re thinking that Mr. Issa is a little bit overwrought in his statements, obviously he’ll come back to reality again shortly.”
