(AP) - Republican candidates for U.S. Senate made cameo appearances before a sparse crowd at a state party convention, underscoring the scant public attention the contest has generated in a state dominated by Democrats.
Tom Del Beccaro, a lawyer and former state party chairman, contrasted on Sunday the steady growth of government with an economy that has failed to deliver jobs for many. Duf Sundheim, also a lawyer and former state party chair, criticized the leading Democrats in the race failing to do their jobs. And theoretical physicist-turned-software developer Ron Unz argued that he was the only candidate who could attract votes from outside the Republican Party.
Only a few dozen people were on hand in Burlingame to hear their pitches, which came after the convention had officially adjourned.
