The contest for the 2nd Congressional District is not over. Given that there are 5 candidate running, and that voting does not end until Dec. 6, there may still be time for a surprise. I don't know if Louisiana law would require a runoff, or allow someone to win the election with a very low plurality. Be that as it may, in this predominantly black district, the question posed by Bruce Dixon at the Black Agenda Report may be answered.
Yesterday, while trying to pin down the correct date for William Jefferson's trial on corruption charges, I searched the Times-Picayune using just Jefferson and trial as search words. To my surprise, what came up was not Cold Cash Jefferson, but his sibilings. This story gets murkier and murkier.
Follow me on the jump to explore the implications for America.
On Nov. 5, brownsox reported that
Louisiana's Second and Fourth District will have their general election in December. Democrat William Jefferson will win in LA-02 easily.
Returning Jefferson to the House would be the same as re-electing Duke Cunningham. The only difference is the party. According to the Times-Picayune, early voting begins today in this election and it must be determined is Change has really come to this country.
The rule on DailyKos is always to vote the party. In the case of West Virginia Governor's race, I ask that you think about voting the man. Jesse Johnson is running for Governor on the Mountain Party ticket. For those who don't yet know, the Mountain Party affiliated with the Green Party about a year ago.
But please hear me out.
Jerry McNerney has now won the endorsement of every influential newspaper in his district. The last one to make their endorsement was the Tracy Press. Tracy is the hometown of the Taker in Chief, Richard Pombo. Get the meat of the story on the jump.
Perhaps the most conservative section of California's 11th CD is the community of Lodi. It is located on the edge of the California Delta and has made national headlines only a very few times, mostly for reasons that the community would rather forget. I can not remember the Lodi News-Sentinal endorsing a Democrat. In 2006, they were strongly for Richie "ANWR" Pombo.
It was to my great surprise that they have endorsed Jerry McWind. excerpt on the jump.
In a new poll conducted by SurveyUSA and released by KPIX - CBS5 in San Francisco, McNerney leads Dean SC-Andal by 11 points. So, as I asked in my post yesterday, why is the DCCC just now putting money in this race? And I had yet another televised attack ad from the DCCC on cable TV last night.
Debbie Cook has come from no-where to the point where she is in a statistical dead heat in CA-46... spend the money there.
I haven't posted here since February. At that time, I was calling for support for Debbie Cook. Those who remember me will remember my work to oust Pombo and support Jerry McNerney. I am back and still fighting.
Last night, I jumped the gun on the Debbie Cook campaign when I posted about her campaign. I was just really excited that she finally decided to take on the photo-op surfer.
I was please to see that dengre posted a comment. I knew that he has had Rohrabacher near the top of his Jack Abramoff Friends list. I am sure that he will educate us more along the way, get us all riled up and ready to work.
Been a while since I posted here. Mostly, I didn't have anything to say. But, since Debbie Cook has just announced that she is going to run against the Taliban's best friend, I just might have to come out of retirement.
Congress has finally approved the appointment of a new US Attorney in Phoenix, AZ. This is the replacement for Paul Charlton, the attorney fired last year. It is another study in politics, as is clear from the story in Indian Country Today.
I guess being a Democrat is no guarantee that you are always going to do the right thing.
The most important element of the Farm Bill of 2007 was defeated today by the filibuster threat of Arkansas Senator Blanche Lincoln (D). The vote was 56-43 but not enough to affect cloture.
