Here is my exclusive post from my blog Powder Blue Report( http://www.powderbluereport.blogspot.com/ )

I've admired Costa Mesa Mayor Allan Mansoor the last few years. He's my type of politician. He's been a great independent voice for Costa Mesa. From his crackdown on illegal immigration in the city to his support of Lt. Bill Hunt over corrupt OC Sheriff Mike Carona, Mayor Mansoor has proven himself to be a voice the citizens can count on for important issues. This leads me to the reason for the post. I got a call from the Mayor tonight as Lynn and I were driving to a Christmas party down in Oceanside at some friends' house. Mayor Mansoor said he is endorsing Ron Paul for President. You talk about being pleasantly surprised. I was elated to hear this. Here is the Mayor's official statement that he authorized me to post...

I trust Ron Paul. The other Democrat and "Republican" candidates are all the same business as usual. They all represent more of the same big unresponsive government. We need to get back to the founding principles of limited government.

It's short and sweet. Did I mention how much I like principled politicians. Thank you Mr. Mayor for your outstanding leadership.

Wow that's great! People talk about getting endorsements from celebrities, but I think endorsements from elected officials is probably more effective and meaningful.

The campaign needs to get a regional press release out for this. THey dropped the ball with Goldwater Jr. Doesn't have to be national... just get the regional news outlet discussing this.

Allen, maybe you could let the Orange County Register know about this (they've done some good pro-Paul pieces over the past several months).

They will be all over this. This is pretty big news and Steven Greenhut & the entire OC Register editorial staff are all big Ron Paul supporters.

I'm putting together a list of endorsements that Ron Paul has from Southern California elected officials.
