That’s why Famous Republican George P Shultz made an effort earlier this year to persuade Ed Lee to break his commitment about running for election.
That’s how I remember it – GS said he would personally call each and every San Francisco Republican and say, “Vote for Ed Lee!”
So of course the Republican Party might not have officially endorsed Ed Lee,* ’cause they remember the kind of mistake it was when world-famous City Attorney and Democrat Dennis Herrera became City Attorney. Now IIRC, our local Repubs officially endorsed somebody in Ed Lee’s political faction back in the day and that was used against the endorsee and then Dennis Herrera won.
These days, Republicans donate to and work for Ed Lee on a more behind-the-scenes basis.
Anyway, here it is:
I’ve looked it over and I don’t see any errors, FWIW…
*I’m a little hazy on this now – see Comments. I hope Tony’s not going rogue, you know, ala BART’s Linton Johnson. (Wow, if they pooled their pocket square collections, the combined power would allow them to spin the entire world…)
