'Republicans rally for 2008'

Tracy Press: Republicans rally for 2008

"After losing local representative Richard Pombo, along with the majority from both houses of Congress in the Nov. 7 election, nearly 100 local Republicans gathered Tuesday night at Chez Shari Restaurant, where they were urged to start fighting for victory in 2008.

Assemblyman Greg Aghazarian, R-Stockton, told the South San Joaquin Republicans to keep growing the “ever-expanding” Republican movement through volunteerism and hard work.

“You can’t look back and say ‘oh we lost and we’re withdrawing from the fight,’” Aghazarian said. “God knows we’ve lost some battles. God knows we’ve won some battles. But at the end of the day, we are going to win the war.


Pombo was scheduled to speak at the meeting, but his wife and paid political aide Annette Pombo said he was delayed at an airport. She told the crowd that their work was appreciated." (source)
