The Orange County Register reports:
Orange County Deputy District Attorney Kelly Ernby, who ran for state Assembly in 2020 and had become a leader with the Republican Party of Orange County, has died suddenly, a week after telling friends she was very sick with COVID-19. She was 46 years old.
Ernby was a political newcomer when she ran for the 74th Assembly District seat in 2020. She campaigned on plans to enhance border security, enact “tough love” policies for homeless people, and oppose all new taxes, calling herself a “pro-business, pro-taxpayer, political outsider” who wanted to “bring back conservative values in California.”
She commented most frequently on Twitter over the past year about her opposition to mandates for COVID-19 vaccines. During a Dec. 4 rally against vaccine mandates at Irvine City Hall, Ernby drew parallels between the 1960s and today, saying in both eras people faced losing freedoms to what she termed socialist ideals.
