  •  History of CA-24 (12+ / 0-)

    I worked for Walter Capps during his first run for that seat in Congress, back when Mike Huffington was the famous one of that couple, and when he left that seat open so that he could run for the Senate.  Unfortunately, that was the year that Newt Gingrich and his Contract for America swept the table.

    Walter ran again two years later, won the seat, and then passed away in office.  His widow, Lois Capps, took the seat and has held it ever since.

    Money to Lois will go out this weekend from me.  I thought her seat was safe, but I'll support her if she is facing a serious challenge.
