GOOD Conservative candidates seek and receive endorsements from the Republican Party, local and neighboring Republican Committees,  long standing Republican clubs, Republican leaders and elected officials,  AND Neighborhood Councils.  While voters have access to a wider range of material to research a candidate, if they utilize the internet,  the alignment with an existing office holder, or fellow candidate, or celebrated opinion molder speaks volumes.  

The established reality is this:  an Endorsed Candidate is seen by experienced leaders as most accurately representing the Republican Party and having the ability to win in the general election.  The candidate is viewed as a true representative of Republican principles, able to effectively make a change, AND to fulfill promises.  

MARK REED, will effectively make a change AND  fulfill promises.

    • 38th, 39th, 45th, & 46th Republican Assembly Central Committees

Second, newspaper editorials have come to favor heavily those already in office. Incumbents today receive the endorsement about 90% of the time. In the 1940s, incumbents received endorsements only about 60% of the time." "Quarterly Journal of Political Science Vol 1, issue 4, 2006, pp 393-400

              Then there is what people in your own party say about you...http://www.extremeink.com/awtk/2012/03/america-wants-to-know-investigates-who-is-mark-reed.html
              Mark Reed May 20, 2014 at 07:16 PM
              RUSS REPORT-On March 6 an “anonymous” email, made to appear as if it originated from Republican Candidate Mark Reed, was sent to several hundred members of the Republican Party in Los Angeles County (RPLAC) making it an illegal communication as defined under 18 U.S. Code §1037. The email was strategically sent to sabotage any chance Reed may have had for an RPLAC Central Committee endorsement on March 9 giving an “unknown” named Pablo Kleinman, Reed’s Republican opponent, a potentially better chance to benefit from an endorsement in District 30. ----------------------- Susan Shelley, a candidate for California Assembly in District 45, is now smack in the middle of a smear campaign as dozens of other members of the LA GOP who support Reed now suspect Shelley of some affiliation in this destructive deed. ----------------------- My own independent investigation of Reed in 2012 determined that he is not a convicted felon, as Shelley’s site continues to claim.... ------------------------- Reed is a volunteer/employee of Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and had to pass Dept. of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation and LAPD background checks. As a purported “felon,” Reed could never have passed any background checks. --------------------------- Mark Vafiades, Chairman of RPLAC, was also conspicuously silent in denouncing the fraudulent and defamatory email towards a fellow Republican at the March 8th endorsement meeting. Reed, who has received unanimous support in his own District and whose integrity and character are far less questionable than those who authored such a deceptive email, is pursuing legal alternatives that could leave Board Members of RPLAC vulnerable ------------------- Here are a couple of different resources for the voters, the public, and yourself to discern and digest the truth about all the slander and untrue allegations. ----------------------- An insightful article by Katharine Russ on CityWatch. http://www.citywatchla.com/8br-hidden/6658-california-politics-poison-email-causing-concerns-within-republican-party -------------------- And last of all my own words: http://markreedforcongress.com/New_Generation_Republicans.pdf
