Benigno Endorses McNerney

At today’s press conference to formally announce Pete McCloskey’s endorsement of Jerry McNerney, fellow Republican primary candidate Tom Benigno also appeared to offer his endorsement for McNerney:
"I have been a Republican all of my life," Benigno said. "But Richard Pombo and his leadership have lost touch with us and it's time for the corruption to end."

Jerry McNerney welcomed their support. "I want to thank both Pete and Tom," McNerney said. "I look forward to working with them to defeat Richard Pombo in the fall."

These endorsements from both of Pombo's primary opponents spell even more trouble for Pombo's slick negative campaign. "When you combine their support, McCloskey and Benigno received almost 40 percent of the Republican vote," said McNerney spokesperson Tor Michaels. "Pombo is in big trouble within his own party and we welcome those Republicans who believe it is time for people to take our government back."

This will be a very difficult place to be, endorseing a former opponet and then making the decession to write about it. This happen to me in a court case where the judge made get up and ask myself questions, then to set down and answer them. Only in America folks. I hope many come to the site and support what happen today. I know that Pete Mc Closkey did what he thought needed to be done, as I did.

Hi I'm Joyce Benigno I am happy to see my husband Tom Benigno and Pete Mc Closkey endorse Mr. Mc Nerney. It's not ever day you see this type of unity in the political circle. I have watched Pete and Tom do different forums and be very polite to one another. I watched Mr Mc Nerney at one forum in Stockton, he also was very polite to his opponents. I can't say the same for Congressman Pombo who only showed up at one forum in Tracy and thought it was his town. He needs to go?

Thanks
Joyce Benigno

I think the quality of McNerny's endorsements says a lot. Keep pluging away Tom, we are counting on you!
