The Board of the Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club has identified three key competitive, high-stakes San Diego-area races where our support can make a difference between now and November 4.

Scott Peters (D) vs. Carl DeMaio (R)

At stake: One of the most hotly contested House seats in the country



Carol Kim (D) vs. Chris Cate (R)

At stake: Veto-proof Dem majority to block Republican Mayor Faulconer










Olga Diaz (D) vs. Sam Abed (R)

At stake: The future of North County politics, Bill Horn, Darrell Issa


Our regular September and October Club meetings will double as fund-raising events for these special candidates.  As usual, RSFD Club members will pay $15 and guests $25.  After hearing our candidates, we hope many of you will make additional contributions to support their campaigns.

Voter Fraud Fantasy

 Voter Fraud is a Fantasy: 


"A study published by The Washington Post found only 31 different incidents of voter fraud since 2000 that an ID law could fix. During that same time, more than a billion ballots have been cast in general and primary elections alone.


The study by Justin Levitt, an expert in constitutional law, found those 31 incidents also represent claims, and some have not even been investigated or prosecuted (and could therefore be debunked). Those 31 potential incidents stack up against the 3,000 votes in the four states with strict ID laws that have been rejected for lack of ID." Attribute to Daily Beast

"URGENT CALL TO ACTION:  The November midterm elections are quickly approaching and the California Democratic Party needs your help to prevent Tea Party extremism!  Congressman Scott Peters (D-52) is embattled in one of the top five toss-up national races against Tea Party Extremist Carl DeMaio.

Council to Review Minimum Wage Proposal on Monday

Council to Review Minimum Wage Proposal on Monday

Last week a committee of the San Diego City Council approved a plan backed by Council President Todd Gloria that would provide five earned sick days and increase the city's minimum wage.

This proposal would help hard-working San Diegans make ends meet, since no one working full-time should have to live in poverty. On Monday, the full City Council will consider it for the first time. 

Please call the councilmembers to voice your support for this important effort to improve economic conditions and the quality of life throughout our region, or attend the City Council meeting on Monday, June 16, at 2:00 p.m. at City Hall (202 "C" St., 12th Floor, San Diego 92101).

ACTION/ALERT: Thanking American Veterans with Proper Heath Care


We take inspiration this week from those who say that rather than merely thanking American veterans we call Congress this week to express our extreme displeasure at:

  1. The lack of proper health care veterans are receiving from the VA;
  2. The fact that this country deports veterans.

Draft Bylaw Change Proposal to be voted on January 23rd, 2014




The name of this organization shall be the Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club.



Republicans have worked tirelessly to sabotage the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, holding innumerable meaningless hearings and voting some 47 times to repeal the law. They have denied the funds necessary to support the extra work required as a result of the Republican controlled states refusal to create their own insurance exchanges. Doing their share to thwart the law’s implementation, Republican led states have refused to expand (federally funded) Medicaid to their citizens and have passed laws to hinder the work of the ACA navigators. If the Republicans want to blame someone for the painfully slow ACA rollout they might start by looking in the mirror. More in DIRECT, the free weekly eZine for Democrats, at
