      Right now I like Xiong, hope he declares, but I really wish Bustamante declining means Florez will get in.

      •  my take (0+ / 0-)

        I have been watching CA21 carefully. Reading the tea leaves of what is going on between the Parra and Florez camps is pretty cloudy right now. John Hernandez who is the Chairman of the Central California Hispanic Chamber has declared and it could be that he is considered a neutral party.
        The whole Florez & Bustamante coordinating thing and not a sound coming out of the Parras makes me believe something is going on behind the scenes.

         Xiong doesn't have any name recognition outside Fresno County. link I mean, I pay attention to this stuff and I don't even know who the guy is yet really. That combined with the heavily Hispanic nature of the district makes me think its going to be a Valadao / Hernandez race in November.
         I also have say that all this waffling around plays to Valadao's favor.

          I'm hoping Xiong's campaign experience will allow him to overcome an institutional advantage for Hernandez, who is a political novice and would likely get shellacked by Valadao, the GOP's top recruit. But right now I'm thinking Valadao is the likely winner here.
