CA17: Vanila Singh launches TV ad

By Josh Richman
Tuesday, May 13th, 2014 at 5:02 pm in 2014 primary, Mike Honda, U.S. House.

Vanila Singh, a Republican candidate in the 17th Congressional District, has launched her first television advertisement:

Singh campaign manager Matt Shupe said the ad will run on cable channels from now through the June 3 election, but when pressed for details on how often it will air and the ad buy’s cost, added β€œit could be fluctuating.”

Singh and another Republican, Joel VanLandingham, are fighting for notice as incumbent Rep. Mike Honda, D-San Jose, and Democrat Ro Khanna suck most of the oxygen out of the room with their epic, year-long battle. Khanna has run a few TV spots and a ton of online advertising; Honda has foregone TV and stuck mostly to direct mail; and VanLandingham has no money to spend on anything, after refusing to accept any campaign contributions.

    So why is she hiding from the forums and any debate? I have heard that Vanlandingham has requested debate with Singh and she is blowing him off. A teacher?

    Watch her interview with the Chron, she makes it clear why she’s hiding.

    Singh has been completely disowned by statewide Republican leaders. Two months ago they were saying – including Jim Brulte – Singh was a rising star in the party, but now they are pretending they never heard of her! Singh hasn’t been showing up at campaign events, editorial board meetings, she isn’t even showing up at her own campaign events. She appears to have the the the thinnest grasp of the issues – she isn’t even well versed on health care – even though she’s a Stanford medical physician- professor! SF Chronicle reporter Carla Maranuchi has had a field day reporting on he strange behavior, including her recent workmen’s comp case she filed on Stanford. How do you get injured working as a Professor? That’s what I want to know! Her candidacy, I think, has deflated faster than a balloon run over by a Mack truck.

    Wow!! interesting!! Very sad, it seems that she is Honda’s clown!

    Well said! The Republican party should publicly disconnect her from the party. It is a slap in the face to the Republican party that she is running with the party support. Voters are changing parties to independents because of her. It is a shame that this is how the Republican Party does business.She is a fraud and the party chairs are being played by two dollar people. Just a shame .

    I don’t know why anybody ever puts him or herself out there to run for public office. They take lots of heat, often deservedly so. But, these days, it’s nothing but that. On top of that, they have to spend half their time begging for money. So, the good ones get out of the game, or never start in the first place. And we end up with the flaks and sell-outs who pander to us panderees who are unwilling to stand by somebody who tells us what we need to hear rather than what we think we want to hear.

    The notion that party support for Dr. Singh has vanished is absurd. The Alameda County Chair recorded a robo call for her Sunday. Her Campaign manager left the SF GOP to run her race, and both Santa Clara and Alameda counties endorsed her unanimously in the last 30 days or so.
    Vanila Singh also practices, if you read the story you would know she injured her hand while treating a patient.

    Rudy,
    Singh is a Joke! She says she will not attend any debate or forum Vanlandingham attends?? That is a joke, if she is in fact the Republician Candidate that why not attend and represent?????
