March 2013, Californians in the 40th State Senate District had the opportunity of voting in a special election to fill a seat vacated by Juan Vargas due to his election to Congress in November 2012. iCaucus members and affiliates had voted to endorse Xanthi Gionis for this special election. At that time, there were many articles calling her and her business into question. As a result of direct communication with Ms. Gionis, iCaucus maintained their endorsement and the members continued to work for her election in three different counties; San Diego, Imperial, and Riverside. Unfortunately, the bad press she received appears to have resulted in her losing the election.
Vetting has begun in various states for the 2014 Election Cycle! If you have not volunteered to participate, now is a great time to do so. There is no better way to get to know who you are working for and voting for!
You can assist by referring candidates to the iCaucus process, volunteering for vetting teams, recruiting your friends & family to participate, volunteering for interview panels, and above all voting for the endorsements!

Kerry Bentivolio is the true Constitutional conservative candidate in this race for U.S. Representative in Michigan's 11th Congressional District. Nancy Cassis is the GOP's write-in pick. Did I mention that Cassis is bringing in $200 thousand of her own money? Do you think that may be a factor in pushing for this write-in vote?
