San Francisco: Home of Democrats, famous landmarks, and the America's Cup?

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

CBS NEWS reported yesterday that the GOP is targeting the Democratic candidate in the run-off race for a Congressional seat in Georgia by linking him to San Francisco.

 

"The unconventional ad, CBS says, "features several people standing in front of famous San Francisco landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Chinatown, lauding the candidate for wanting to “raise taxes” and “weaken the military”.

 

Hilarious? Even more so when you see the photo and caption that CBS ran with the story (below). Yet another ironic reminder of what a great venue SF Bay was for the Cup....
