America's Finest Democrats. In the Heart of San Diego!


Dr. Jen WINS! Let’s Celebrate Next Tuesday!

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

Fellow club members — SHE DID IT!

Our own Dr. Jen did the impossible, the improbable, and defeated Trump Republican Lorie Zapf, and it wasn’t even close!

With 100% of precincts reporting, Jen Campbell won by 12 points!

On behalf of the Clairemont Democratic Club, a club that you helped get off the ground several years ago, we are so proud of you! Congratulations!

Given all of the other results, we can review those successes and celebrate those victories at our next club meeting on Tuesday, November 13th. We have invited Andy Keatts with Voice of San Diego to discuss some of the big election results locally.

See you next Tuesday!

Vote NO on Associate Justice Carol Corrigan!

Clairemont Democrats,

On your November ballot, there will be retention elections for two Associate Justices of the California Supreme Court. One of those Associate Justices is Carol Corrigan.

She is a Schwarzenegger appointee from 2005. Back in 2008, the state of California successfully overturned a marriage ban for same-sex couples. Associate Justice Carol Corrigan was one of three judges who dissented. Then, Justice Corrigan ruled in favor of sustaining Prop 8 as the law of the land in the historic Strauss v. Horton case that deemed it unconstitutional. If she is retained, she will be able to serve another 12-year term on the California Supreme Court — that means she won’t be back in front of voters until 2030!

We are proud to stand with our friends at the San Diego Democrats for Equality in asking voters to vote NO on Carol Corrigan.

Club Meeting: October 9

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

John Hartley, former San Diego City Councilmember and champion on a local clean elections initiative will be our guest speaker on Tuesday, October 9th.

We will also hear from both sides of the SDSU West issue (Measure G) on the ballot this November. Then, we will vote to take a position on both SoccerCity and SDSU West.

Finally, we will take a position on an election that was brought to our attention recently. There will be two retention elections for Associate Justices of the California Supreme Court.

Back in 2008, the state of California successfully overturned a marriage ban for same-sex couples. Carol Corrigan, one of the Associate Justices up for retention election, was one of three judges who dissented. She is a Schwarzenegger appointee from 2005. If she is retained, she will be able to serve another 12-year term on the California Supreme Court — that means she won’t be back in front of voters until 2030!

So, we will be taking a position on that election.
