Report from Sen. McCain Visit to San Francisco

Senator McCain's frequent campaigning in California shows that when he says he intends to compete here in the state, he means it. His visit to San Francisco this week was just the latest of his many visits here.

The Fairmont Hotel was the site of a major fundraiser for the McCain campaign, the CRP and the RNC Monday night. Considering it was San Francisco, the usual left wing protestors showed up, only to be countered by an elite and committed cadre of Republican supporters of Senator McCain who refused to concede the sidewalk outside to the lefties. CRP Regional Vice Chair Luis Buhler was joined by our friends from the Asian/Pacific Islanders for McCain, earning a profile in courage award for their sidewalk campaigning for our nominee.

Inside, Senator McCain and his wife Cindy were met by a very enthusiastic crowd of supporters at a special dinner and reception.

I was also glad to have the opportunity to catch up with Dana Walsh, our Republican nominee for Congress in the 8th district. Dana is in the unique position of running for Congress against both Nancy Pelosi *and* Cindy Sheehan. While this is an uphill challenge for Dana in this district (to say the least), Dana has proven herself as a very bright, articulate advocate for our party in one of the most difficult districts in the universe for Republicans.
