LA County Democratic Party endorses Danette Meyers
District Attorney candidate Danette Meyer's campaign received a much needed boost when she garnered the endorsement of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party at a crowded meeting Tuesday night.
Fellow Democrat DA Candidates Jackie Lacey and Bobby Grace were also vying for the endorsement, City Prosecutor Carmen Trutanich did not make a pitch, perhaps a reflection of his continuing need to hide from his humiliating courtroom 'victory' on Monday where he 'won' the right to be prohibited (by writ of mandate, no less) from using 'Los Angeles Chief Prosecutor' or 'Chief Criminal Prosecutor' as his misleading ballot designation.
According to sources, each of the three candidates at the LACDP meeting were limited to one-minute speeches to make their pitches. It seems that Meyers had planned her pitch to perfection. Launching an ad hominem attack on current fundraising front runner Jackie Lacey, Meyers played the 'R' card - she accused Lacey of being a Republican who was supported by a Republican.
That seemed be enough for those in attendance and Meyers got the endorsement by a reported 90% of votes. It now remains to see if Meyers can parlay her victory into much needed campaign contributions. To that end Meyers has a fundraiser scheduled for this weekend where the value of the LACDP endorsement will be seen.
