Esparto farmer Charlie Schaupp has dropped out of the 3rd District Congressional race, endorsing Colusa County Supervisor Kim Vann of Arbuckle.

He called Vann “clearly the best choice” to defeat incumbent Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Creek.

“She is smart and articulate.  She understands the issues in our district and I think she will make an excellent congresswoman…,” Schaupp, a retired Marine lieutenant colonel, said in an email message Thursday. “I’m first and foremost a Marine, and a Marine always puts country first. In this case, I (decided)  that it was time to step aside and do what’s best for the country so that John Garamendi will be defeated.”
Schaupp is the second of six GOP candidates to bow out, following pizza store assistant manager and Marine Corps veteran Tim Core of Yuba City.
Core threw his support behind airline pilot Rick Tubbs of Vacaville. Others still in the race are prosecutor Tony Carlos of Yuba City and real estate agent and karate instructor Eugene Ray of Vacaville.
Garamendi, the former lieutenant governor and state insurance commissioner, is the only Democrat in the race to represent the newly drawn district, which includes most of Yolo County, minus West Sacramento, and all or portions of Solano, Sacramento, Lake, Colusa, Glenn, Sutter and Yuba counties.

The candidates have until the June 5 primary to build support. For the first time, voters will be able to choose any candidate, with the top two vote-getters going head to head in November.

    "For the first time, voters will be able to choose any candidate, with the top two vote-getters going head to head in November." An interesting part of Prop 14--the Top Two Primaries Act (June 2010)--is that even if one candidate wins a majority of the vote, even 95% of the vote, there will be a top-two run-off in November. That said, unless the "decline to state" voters are all or mostly Democratic voters or one party or the other does not show up for this vote, it is unlikely that any one candidate will win much more than 55% of the vote in the primary, because the Democratic edge over Republicans is only by 9.2%: Democratic: 42.1% Republican: 32.9% Decline to state: 20.2% Other: 4.8%
