    Obama won it just 51-46 in 08 so this district would be fairly unique (outside of AZ) in that he would be doing better this time around. But if there's one district in the state that he might be likely to improve in, it's this one. Sac's suburbs (as opposed to its exurbs) are trending blue fast as they fill up with nonwhites. CA7 largely overlaps with the old 5th assembly district, which was one of the few districts of any type anywhere to flip from red to blue in 2010. Part of that was due to the GOP running a social conservative zealot to replace a relative moderate who was term-limited out, but the Dems ran a conventional liberal (who, like Bera, is a doctor for what that's worth) and still flipped it.

    This race is probably either pure tossup or tilt D depending on how effectively Bera can hit Lungren over the Ryan plan.

    SSP poster. 43, new CA-6, -0.25/-3.90
