Nan Malin is chair of the Pacific County GOP, a pathetic chair of a deep, dark, blue county where, under her inept, nonexistent leadership, Malin has managed to put together such a pathetic political organization that not a single, solitary Republican filed to run for ANY elected position in this county.
Malin seems to have a tremendous amount of time to flitter about the state for the greater glory of Nan, when she SHOULD be staying home and doing something to at least get SOMEONE from the GOP to run for SOMETHING.
Instead, the simple idiot lies about a letter from a sitting state senator who has served us for the last 16 years.
Malin's lies about HB 1329, the SEIU legislation co-sponsored by Herrera that would have not only forced daycare workers into unions but then, according to Herrera, force the daycare owners to pay their union dues, clearly are from a kool-aid drinking idiot looking for a post-election job working for Herrera.
Herrera helped the democrats waste the last $229 million dollars from the state emergency fund, burying any "fiscal conservatism" cred Malin is desperately trying to get for the empty suit.
Herrera got 60 percent in a district where almost anyone gets 60%. To acclaim that as some sort of accomplishment just goes to either prove Malin's massive ignorance about the 18th and yet another Herrera stroke designed to move her, Malin, who sees herself as a legend in her own mind, up the political ladder.
That a lame, inept, incompetent organization like the Pacific County GOP "unanimously endorsed" Herrera is reason enough to vote for anyone else.
NO "TRUE CONSERVATIVE" WOULD COSPONSOR SEIU LEGISLATION. NO "TRUE CONSERVATIVE" WOULD VOTE WITH THE DEMOCRATS TO HELP THEM STRIP OUT THE LAST OF OUR MONEY IN THE STATE EMERGENCY FUND.
Malin knows this... but Malin doesn't care.
Her letter and her words, lying as they did, was a despicable act of an incompetent clown of a county GOP chair who seems much more fixated on issues outside her county then in it. And the fact that precisely zero Republicans are running in Pacific County condemns her far more than anything I can write.
In the email below, excusing her efforts to get Herrera then Pacific County GOP endorsements (as if that ever mattered) Malin made this clear:
I am also aware that you feel I am working against Castillo. - which is not true. as I have done much to help him garner press both nationally and locally.Well, it looks like you are now, doesn't it? Angling for a job? What did Herrera promise you?
When the Pacific County GOP drank Herrera's kool aid, for whatever the reason, Malin felt compelled to email me:

I wanted to personally let you know what happened at our county convention this weekend. The press release is below, but short version is that the county gave a pre-primary endorsement to Jaime Herrera. I want to tell you that I spoke against giving this. but the county grassroots were very strong in their opinion. They have had opportunities to listen to the candidates and to speak to them individually. Further I told them that I will help all Republican candidates, they said "fine, go ahead." I am also aware that you feel I am working against Castillo. - which is not true. as I have done much to help him garner press both nationally and locally. I would like you to know -the Castillo campaign. blew our convention off. We never heard from them.
I know that we have some differences in opinion and differences in how we express those opinions on line. I want you to know that I respect and appreciate you. I hope we will not take shots at each other - and, I also hope you will focus on beating up Heck and democrats. If you want to talk with me about things, please call 360.244.xxxx. My skype is nansen.xxxxxx
Pacific County GOP elects state convention delegates and endorses Herrera for Congress.
Seaview. The Pacific County Republicans held their convention in Seaview on Saturday, March 17. An unprecedented number of grassroots and teaparty activists participated as delegates, having been elected through the caucuses last February 13. The first order of business was to elect delegates to represent Pacific County to the State Republican convention to be held in Vancouver in June. Elected were Jean Harrington, Daniel Turner, Bill Nickila and Jack Smith, in addition to county leadership Nansen Malin, Karla Webber and Brett Malin. The official delegates to the State Convention will be voting on the State Party Platform, attending workshops, events, a campaign school and hearing speeches by Mitt Romney and noted author Michelle Malkin.
A very lively debate took place during the county platform discussion. Delegates holding differing opinions passionately presented their thoughts on key planks in the county party platform. After much consideration, consensus was reached and the official county party platform was adopted. It will be available on the party website www.pacificgop.com.
After a discussion weighting the pros and cons of pre-primary endorsements and the new Top Two Primary ballot, their attention moved to learning about candidates for U.S. Senate and the 3rd Congressional District. The delegates had the opportunity to hear the candidates speak and meet with candidates one on one the previous Saturday at the annual Lincoln Day Dinner. Delegates shared their impressions and asked questions of each other about reasons for supporting candidates. A straw poll was conducted for the position being vacated by Brian Baird. State Representative Jaime Herrera won the poll with 95% of the vote. Upon announcement of the poll results, long time South Bend community leader Vince Shaudys placed a motion to endorse Herrera, explaining his desire for the grassroots to "get behind one candidate." The motion to endorse passed unanimously. Pacific GOP Chair Nansen Malin observed, "As county parties we are normally very reluctant to make pre-primary endorsements. Despite my cautions, it's really exciting to see the grassroots so inspired by a candidate."
It certainly seems she's long past her concerns now, doesn't it?
