SHE’S SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA’S TODD AKIN: Roll Call: Loretta Sanchez Stumbles Prompt SoCal Angst.
It has been a rough few days for Sanchez.
A mere three days after announcing her candidacy, Sanchez mimicked a Native American “war cry” at an event at the state party convention. She apologized, but “no doubt hurt herself,” said Eric Bauman, vice chairman of the California Democratic Party.
And just before making her candidacy official, a draft email about her plans leaked, leading Sanchez to frantically deny her announcement was imminent. She ultimately launched her bid in the exact manner the draft email laid out.
Her early errors — especially the weekend remark dubbed racially insensitive — could leave donors crucial to her success hesitant to contribute to her campaign.
Not ready for prime time.
