No Bay Area small-business love for McCain?

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain‘s campaign today announced its California Small Business Leaders for McCain coalition members, a day after a few of the state’s small business owners endorsed McCain’s economic plan.

“John McCain’s long standing commitment to keep government spending in check and to promote a healthy environment for small businesses is why I support Senator McCain,” Herb Morgan of Del Mar-based Efficient Market Advisors said in the news release. “Senator Obama has put forward an economic plan that will saddle small businesses with higher taxes, expensive mandates and that’s change we can’t afford.”

But while the release named coalition members grouped by regions — San Diego, Sacramento, Los Angeles and Orange County — it included nobody from the San Francisco Bay Area!

Maybe that’s because this the kind of place where people are apt to rally in the streets for an “oil-free president,” calling attention to McCain’s close ties with the oil industry. That’ll be late afternoon tomorrow, Wednesday, July 9, at lots of locations around the Bay Area, courtesy of MoveOn.org.
