Note: Mike Schaefer has allegedly donated $30,000 to a right-wing PAC. We are not able to break with CADEM and endorse David Dodson, the other Democratic candidate in this race; however, the Democrats of the Morongo Basin have grave reservations about the Schaefer endorsement.

Note that the Club has not reviewed the pile of judicial candidates that are on the ballot! If you want to know about them, shows you which judges were appointed by which governor, which is a start!
