Good Riddance: Stan Caplan Leaves GOP After Racist Remarks Exposed, Republicans Rejoice at Better Choice: RPSDC Endorsed Candidate for the 51st Mayor Bill Wells!
Stan Caplan’s departure from the Republican Party to become an independent has been hailed as a necessary and long-overdue decision. Caplan’s racist remarks towards a respected Latina member of the Republican Party during the 2022 midterm election cycle were met with widespread condemnation from numerous groups, including the California Chapter of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly (CARNHA). CARNHA called for Caplan to apologize to the member who was the target of his comments and to the entire Hispanic community.
Caplan’s behavior was not only inappropriate but also completely contrary to the values and principles that the Republican Party stands for. The fact that he made these comments at a Republican Party event was particularly troubling, as it sent the wrong message to members and constituents of the party.
Fortunately, Caplan’s departure from the Republican Party has been seen as a positive development. It shows that the Party will not tolerate inappropriate behavior, especially racist remarks, from its members. The Republican Party remains committed to upholding strong conservative values and principles and to ensuring that its candidates represent those values and principles in a positive and constructive way.
In contrast to Caplan’s disgraceful behavior, Mayor Bill Wells, the only Republican candidate in the race for California’s 51st Congressional District, has received the endorsement of the Republican Party of San Diego County. Mayor Wells’ leadership is exactly what the district needs to navigate the challenges ahead. His experience as a Mayor has prepared him well for Congress, and his commitment to being transparent and accountable to the people is evident in his campaign. He has a proven track record of fighting for the people of San Diego County. With his endorsement, the Republican Party of San Diego County has made it clear that Mayor Wells is the best choice for the district and the Republican Party.
