CA-52: How Olin Hyde endorsed, unendorsed, and endorsed Carl DeMaio
Olin Hyde, CEO of Englue, a corporation that's in CA-52, has endorsed Carl DeMaio after rescinding his prior endorsement. While I don't agree with Hyde's characterization of Republicans and the Tea Party, I do find it refreshing that DeMaio decided to respond in a thoughtful manner that didn't use elevated language when talking about either Democrats or Republicans. Democrats in DC are calculating which Republican districts they'll need to take to regain the majority, with the assumption they won't lose any. If DeMaio runs like this for the next year, I think he wins.
