Not too soon after McCain was berated for avoiding Los Angeles on the campaign trail, an announcement comes this morning that he's opening a campaign headquarters in Torrance at 23211 Hawthorne Blvd.

Also today, the campaign announced its California Small Business Leaders for McCain coalition members, that is small business owners who endorsed John McCain's economic plan (list below).

Some interesting LA figures: three landscaping/florist shops, a furniture store, a liquor store and a few other businesses. It seems LA and Orange County have the smallest contingent of the major counties listed. Does LA small business not care about John McCain like John McCain supposedly doesn’t care about LA?

In a phone call to Garbis Sarkissian, a self-described Republican and the owner of Los Feliz Liquor, he said he supports McCain because McCain supports small businesses.
