With the luxurious Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes as his backdrop, Democratic state Assembly candidate Al Muratsuchi found the perfect setting Wednesday for a campaign rally to needle his Republican opponent, incumbent David Hadley.
“We’re not going to stay on the sidelines and let that man become the next president of the United States,’’ Muratsuchi said during an event that referenced Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump dozens of times.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Rancho Palos Verdes, CA – Today, at a rally near Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, which falls in the 66th Assembly District, Al Muratsuchi, Candidate for Assembly in the 66th District, Congressman Ted Lieu, Eric Bauman, the Los Angeles County Democratic chairman, teachers and activists, all called on Assemblyman David Hadley to take a stand against Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump. Hadley recently chose to repeat his pattern of indecision and lack of leadership by announcing that he won’t vote in the Presidential election. The speakers also pointed out the shared values between Donald Trump and David Hadley, as outlined on hadleytrump.com.
The event was broadcast on Facebook live, which can still be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/almuratsuchi/videos/1078194358916781/

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
In a pattern that has become his signature move in Sacramento, Republican Assemblyman David Hadley has once again shown how afraid he is to take real stand.. In this case, his indecision in the Presidential race is really just a mask hiding the truth: that he actually politically agrees with much of what Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump stands for. As the website www.Hadleytrump.com shows, their shared values includes positions that are clearly too extreme for the South Bay, including Hadley’s 17 percent rating from Planned Parenthood, his opposition to clear air regulations and support of fracking.
Torrance Daily Breeze - Al Muratsuchi
With a historic presidential election rapidly approaching, it is time to take a real stand for the South Bay and our country.
Our next president of the United States is going to be either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, with all due respect to third-party candidates. The choice between Clinton and Trump could not be more clear. The stakes could not be higher — for our children, our families, and our nation.
This is no time to stay on the sidelines of this historic election with your finger in the wind. We cannot afford to sit this one out or cast a protest vote. This election is too important.
Assemblymember David Hadley’s decision to not vote for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in this historic election is not just any regular, average non-decision that he tends to make in his life as a representative of the South Bay. No, this one is much, much bigger.
Because this time, his non-decision could help put Donald Trump into the Oval Office.
Yes, that Republican Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump. Yes, the one who just called President Obama and Hillary Clinton “the founders of ISIS” and implied in a speech that gun owners should shoot Secretary Hillary Clinton or the judges that she nominates as President. Yes, the same Donald Trump who, since he announced his candidacy, has called for punishment for women who seek abortions, called Mexicans “rapists,” made fun of a disabled reporter and said he wants to ban Muslims from the country.
