Eastman, via Chapman's site
It’s official. Chapman University School of Law Dean John Eastman told the Red County blog this morning that he’s jumping in the Republican race for attorney general.
And unlike a lot of conservative candidates, Eastman wasn’t beating the tough-on-crime campaign drum. Instead, the Chapman dean says Californians will need a Constitutional pro in the AG’s seat in the coming years to beat back an expanding federal government. “Obamacare” could be Target No. 1 for California’s new Top Cop, Eastman told the blog.
Eastman is no fan of the current officeholder, accusing Jerry Brown of failing to adequately defend Prop. 8 in courts. And if Brown is elected governor, “I think the voters in this state are going to want some adult supervision in the attorney general’s office,” he said.
Eastman joins Orange County state Sen. Tom Harman and LA District Attorney Steve Cooley in the GOP primary.
