In today's San Diego Union Tribune, an article quoted the Tri-City TP as advising it's members to vote against Darrell Issa and Carl DeMaio and to vote for Democrats instead. In Issa's case, the reason given was that Issa voted to raise the debt ceiling. In DeMaio's case they said, "Carl DeMaio would do more damage to the GOP platform than Democrat Scott Peters". Hmmmm.
Think I found the article you're talking about., problem is, it was 2012.http://sdrostra.com/?p=17171
Just the opposite. The UT is very conservative.
If it was 2012, you did not find it. DeMaio did not run in 2012.

Who said anything about a 2 year old Mayors race? Why would I post something that was so old? Here is the link: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/oct/12/tp-tea-party-group-refuses-to-back-demaio-or-issa/
Why should any of us care about very local politics?
I think it was about a TEA party supporting a D over an R. He probably doesn't understand why the TEA is trying to get some R's out of the party that they see as being like democrats.
