Logue: I’m a work horse, not a show horse

FAIRFIELD — Congressional candidate Dan Logue described himself Monday as a work horse, not a show horse and called the Nov. 4 vote a “crossroads election.”

“We are in a war of ideas,” Logue said. “There is no tomorrow.”

The state assemblyman, speaking to the Solano Republican Women Federated, said he’s battled the anti-business bent of California government and cited his success in improving the local economy as a Yuba County Supervisor.

“Reagan’s rules worked,” said Logue, R-Loma Rica.

He said freedom allows people to succeed and write their own script for their lives.

“Everything the left has done for six years has failed – everything,” said Logue, who is running against incumbent Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, to represent the 3rd Congressional District.

People are no longer buying the Big Media lies, Logue said.

“The propaganda machine is collapsing,” Logue told the GOP gathering.

State employees were given so much power that they could pretty much name their number on wages, he said. He spoke about the Proposition 23 measure he wrote to suspend in 2010 California’s Global Warming Solution Act of 2006.

“I found out what the ruling class is all about,” Logue said.

Bill Gates, Facebook and Intel all donated $1 million each against the measure, the state assemblyman said.

Asked about his position on Common Core state standards, Logue said he believes in allowing local jurisdictions to determine education policy.

If you want government that is flexible, you have to go back to local government, he said.

The 3rd Congressional District covers large swaths of Solano and Yolo counties and includes Fairfield, Suisun City, Travis Air Force Base, Vacaville and Dixon. The district also includes small portions of Colusa, Glenn, Lake, Sacramento, Sutter and Yuba counties, to include Beale Air Force Base.

Garamendi and Logue faced off in the June 3 primary in a preview of the Nov. 4 election. Garamendi earned 53.5 percent of the vote compared to Logue’s 46.5 percent. Garamendi won in Lake, Solano and Yolo counties, Logue won in Colusa, Glenn, Sacramento, Sutter and Yuba counties.

    “Reagan’s rules worked,” said Logue... Yes, all you have to do is spend, spend, spend, and triple the national debt, and you can get out of a mild recession. But I disagree with his line: “The propaganda machine is collapsing,” Fox is still on the air and the wealthy donors are still funding the right-wing spin factories. It's money, money, money rules the Republicans. Time to kick out the jams.

    Really? A Dem-Wit complaining about spending and debt? Only a deaf & blind donkey's rear end would believe it. Dem_Wits have caused this mess. Old school GOP have allowed it. Time to VOTE OUT any fool who supports higher taxes and bigger govt. California is suffering due to the Dem_Wits. Time to vote them out of office.

    Mike. Correct me if I am incorrect but I remember the democrats being in charge of the house during the Regan years. Rather than getting caught up in the perpetual it's all the Republicans and Foxes fault let us just deal with our finances and live within our means.
