California GOP governor candidate Donnelly lashes out at incumbant Jerry Brown

California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly asserts the "War on Women" "was created by consultants inside the Washington, DC Beltway; But in California, there is a real ‘War on Women’ thanks to Jerry Brown's release of convicted criminals who prey upon women in California."

Donnelly recently announced that he has hired one of the first Republican female campaign managers to run a major gubernatorial race in a large state. He promoted his campaign spokeswoman, Jennifer Kerns, to the post after she helped him take a commanding lead in the GOP field for governor, blowing past his nearest GOP contender by a 2-to-1 margin, according to the latest Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) Poll.

Donnelly and his team go on to say that they believe the "War on Women" was conjured up by "consultants" inside the Beltway in D.C.

“If there is such a thing as a War on Women,” Donnelly says it's being waged by “Governor Jerry Brown as he releases violent criminals onto the street to prey upon women in California as he strips women of their 2nd Amendment rights by signing the strictest gun control laws in the nation.”

In Donnelly’s latest TV ad, it shows footage of the criminal some say will be Governor Brown's "Willie Horton" in this race. He is a convicted criminal who was released from prison only to rape and murder his own grandmother.

The inmate was released after the passage of California Assembly Bill (AB) 109, Governor Brown's so-called realignment program aimed to save money and reduce overcrowding in prisons.

The video also features Connelly’s wife, Rowena, who is also a close campaign adviser. Donnelly says in the video, "They say next to every great man is a great woman. Well, I've got two of them."

The new campaign ad closes with a quote from Donnelly: "I believe in women. I don't believe in early release for criminals who prey on women."

This is a governor’s race that is just beginning to heat up with a long way to go.
