Logue calls for unity, warns of Democrats’ tactics

VACAVILLE — State Assemblyman Dan Logue says polling puts him 2 percent ahead of Rep. John Garamendi in the 3rd Congressional District race – and he told the Vaca Valley Tea Party that if Garamendi wins re-election the Democratic congressman will take money from the rice industry and other growers to fund progressives in politics.

“They’re going to build up a war chest to snuff you guys out,” Logue said.

He also warned that Democrats will try to get conservatives to turn against each other and urged avoiding that trap.

The enemy isn’t Speaker of the House John Boehner or other Republicans but “Nancy frigging Pelosi,” Logue said Wednesday at the tea party meeting in Vacaville.

Logue, R-Loma Rica, said he is 63 and has been involved in conservative politics since the age of 12 when his father was a delegate at the Republican National Convention in San Francisco, where Barry Goldwater was nominated as the GOP presidential candidate in 1964.

“Like to take back your country?” Logue asked at the start of his talk. “This is the year we take back our country,” he continued.

He told tea party members they could be home watching TV but instead came to the meeting.

That’s what he loves about the tea party meeting participants, Logue said. “You get it.”

The Republican congressional candidate said he spoke to graduating Yuba City High School students and had wondered how he’d reach the diverse young people who included Hispanic, Laotian and Hmong students.

“I’m going to tell the story of America – of freedom,” Logue said he decided.

“In America you can write your own script” as conservative figure Dinesh D’Souza said, Logue told students.

Logue quoted words in the movie “Saving Private Ryan” when the central character is advised to “earn this” – to be worthy of the lives lost to save his.

“When I got done – not because I’m a good speaker – those kids couldn’t stop cheering,” Logue said. “They were starving to hear this.”

He said as a state lawmaker he’s fought the hostile climate against business in the state Capitol. California loves to hunt, he said – the state loves to track down small businesses.

Logue said almost 60 percent of voters in the 3rd Congressional District oppose President Barack Obama.

“We have a really great chance of winning,” he said of the Nov. 4 election.

    Seems like everybody has a poll that shows they are close or ahead.

    I want to take back my country too - from the teapartiers in Washington who are ruining it. The last thing we need is another roadblock elected to serve to wealthy. It's time we all realized that they are the only ones who benefit from the obstructionism.

    If you really look into it and not stereotype, the vast majority of the "Tea Party" are not wealthy Republicans. They are conservative middle class Americans who have a right to seek as much change in this Country as "Progressives" like yourself. Both groups are at the extreme ends of the tug of war that is occurring in America. Both have positives, and both have negatives. One is not right and the other wrong. They have valid beliefs that do not mesh at all. It's unfortunate but that's what it is. And being closed minded to other viewpoints will never lead to real and honest solutions in this country. Unfortunately you are as much a part of the problem as you perceive the tea party to be. Proving yourself right is more important than a meaningful America for all Americans. You too my friend, could benefit from a healthy dose of looking in a mirror. The man you will see, if you let yourself, is not much different than the tea partier you despise, just the other side of the coin.

    Kirchy check the massive influx at the border, our tax money sponsoring it, the record domestic homelessness despite spending $17 trillion, medical insurance, drones, NSA, the IRS it's obvious that the tea party is not in charge, to vote for status quo is delusional.

    If this article is accurate, disappointing Logue isn't better.

    Phrases like "snuff out" and words like "frigging." Plus nothing new or risk-taking.

    Dan Logue has a proven record its very easy to see what he has done for the people of California as he is after all a sitting Assemblyman. Dan Logue would breath life into Solano county if elected. Its true the Republican party here in California has a long way to go but I hope and work for its rebound. It does little for the cause for the Bomb Throwers to sit around in ther undies posting cute messages that knock the efforts who actually try and bring change to our county.

    Did Logue happen to explain why he lives in Chico, yet is running for Congress from Solano county? Or, why he quit his last race?

    Why does Garamendi live in Walnut Creek, in Contra Costa County? It's a large Congressional district geographically.

    Garamendi lives in Walnut Grove, just enough to be in this district
