  •  The last district was quite gerrymandered (3+ / 0-)

    It went into gold country, which is very Republican and the district was drawn for a Republican. A Democrat wasn't going to win in that district, as it's too ancestrally Republican. The new one pulls in more Democratic suburbs in Sacramento County. We did pick up an Assembly district within the county in 2010 of all years, so I rate Bera's chances rather high.

    Republican performance in a very low turnout primary doesn't equal anything for November. Democrats did not show up at all in the primary.
