Pro-family voters must think, study, and vote!
Why the U.S. Senate contest to replace Barbara Boxer is so important

Hi <<First Name>>,
I voted today by mail. And it was the shortest presidential election-year ballot I can remember!
I only voted for 5 things -- 4 candidates and 1 proposition. U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, State Senate, and State Assembly. Voted yes on Prop. 50 (see why). Couldn't vote for president because I'm a registered independent and have been since 2003.
Without telling you exactly for whom I voted (and it probably doesn't matter to you because we don't likely live in the same congressional and state legislative districts), I do want to talk with you about the election to replace uberliberal Democrat Barbara Boxer, who's retiring after 24 years of doing great damage in the United States Senate.
Because California's June 7 election is a "jungle primary" where the top two vote-getters will face off in November, there is the prospect of no Republican advancing if powerful, liberal Democrats Kamala Harris and Loretta Sanchez come out on top.
So, if you want a pro-family conservative to be California's next U.S. senator, I advise you to rally around the strongest Republican who is a mostly-conservative constitutionalist, and help boost that candidate to first or second place on election night.
If the three Republicans who have the best chance are indeed Tom Del Beccaro, Duf Sundheim, and Ron Unz, you need to rally behind one of them with your vote and urge your friends to vote that way too.
Here are some published articles to help you:
Regarding Tom Del Beccaro: Senate hopeful Tom Del Beccaro is forging his own version of the California GOP (Los Angeles Times, May 29, 2016) On abortion, Del Beccaro describes himself as "pro-life," and he supported Proposition 8, the later-overturned 2008 ballot measure outlawing same-sex marriage in California.
Regarding Duf Sundheim: Pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage Republican aims to compete in California (Washington Examiner, June 4, 2015) Republicans on the left coast are poised to field a pro-abortion, same-sex marriage supporting Senate candidate, testing the theory that they might be relevant in the land of Reagan if only they'd concede defeat on social issues.
Regarding Ron Unz: Being Ron Unz (LA Weekly, November 24, 1999)
He‘s profoundly conservative on taxes, crime and welfare, but also out of step with conservatives in manifold ways: He’s pro-immigrant but anti-multicultural; anti-voucher in pro-voucher times; anti-abortion but nondogmatic, framing his position as a ”personal view“; a free trader who is sanguine about China; an unreligious person among followers who root their politics in religious fervor; a right-wing activist driven only marginally by concern about gays and guns.
My other election advice for pro-family Californians continues to be:
1. See this election as your opportunity, not as a drag. Sick of wicked government? This election is your chance to change your representatives from bad to good in key districts. Remember you're here on Planet Earth to worship God and love your neighbor. Let this energize you to shine your light, right now!
2. Don't trust in voter guides, but do your own research. See my simple tips for you.
3. Don't merely inform yourself, but make it your goal to inform others. Love others by multiplying good votes. Use email, Facebook, and Twitter to tell others who you're voting for and why. Be creative. Be loving. Be bold!
Boldly in Christ's grace and truth,
