What has Dan Ball been up to since losing the Republican Primary for he Coachella Valley’s congressional seat to soap star and locals-local Kimberlin Brown Pelzer in June? Well, it looks like he’s been watching TV!
Ball, who also used to be on the teevee and received 6,644 votes to come in third in the June Primary (39,000 votes behind Raul Ruiz and 13,000 less than Brown Pelzer), offered up some advice to Brown Pelzer after seeing her “lap dog” tv commercial air.
“Residents of the 36th District are smart and they want substance from a candidate, not just name-calling,” Ball told Uken Report. “With all the negativity spewing from the extremes on both sides these days, a positive approach will win over voters, in my opinion. Tell them and show them how you will make their lives better, their families safer, put more money in their pocket, create a better education system for their children, help our brave military, police and veterans, along with a plan to restore the Salton Sea.”
“If you must go negative, show and prove how your opponent has failed the 36th,” Ball said. “Name-calling won’t work. As a common sense conservative with more of an independent view on the social issues, my hope is that Mrs. Brown-Pelzer will try that approach moving forward. We need a powerful and positive leader in Washington who will fight for us, not a party, special interest groups or themselves.”
And if this sounds less like advice and more like someone who is already talking like they will run again in 2020, you’re not alone. So, it’s probably best if you prepare now for more innovative Facebook Lives and oh so many hashtags.
