|The Feuer campaign reacted to City Attorney Greg Smith's rising stock with|
this hit-piece mailer.
Those few percentage points that could enure to Greg Smith, could be enough to knock Trutanich out of the race, coupled with Greg Smith's well funded campaign. Feuer would doubtless prefer to face Trutanich in a runoff, as there is only one outcome from that scenario; Feuer is elected as City Attorney because Trutanich is unelectable given all his negatives.
But a Feuer-Smith runoff is a very different race, and one that clearly has Feuer worried. Smith, a centrist Democrat, has a far broader appeal than the far left-leaning Feuer. In a runoff against Smith, Feuer's negatives, which include but are not limited to, his lack of courtroom experience, his support for the crime-wave stimulus package (AB 109 aka the 'Prison Realignment') and his unpopular perception as a Sacramento politician, spells likely defeat for Feuer.
Interestingly, Feuer's claim to be endorsed by Greig Smith may have some voters puzzled.
Los Angeles Mayoral candidate Jan Perry's mail oriented campaign has flooded voters with more mailers than any of the candidates. In the mailer pictured above, it appears that Greig Smith has only endorsed one candidate; Jan Perry.
Perhaps the question being asked should be, 'Will the real Mike Feuer please stand up?'
