  •  Cal 8th CD (0+ / 0-)

    The new 8th Congressional District is based in the eastern High Desert, includes parts of Buck McKeon's former 25th district,  and presents a rare opportunity.  There are 11 Republicans and 2 Democrats (Jackie Conaway and John Pinkerton) vying for the two November spots. Republicans have a 10% registered voter advantage, but with 11 Republicans, most of equal experience and name-recognition splitting the vote, it is possible that the 2 Democrats could be the winners.  This would be a real coup in what has been reliable R territory.
