    I think we have two amazing Latino candidates in Jose Hernandez and Raul Ruiz.  They are total underdogs but if anyone can win in those districts, it's them.  Especially with an Obama landslide, which we're on track to get.  If 20% of Republicans vote for Obama and Obama captures 60%-70% of Independents and over 90% of Democrats, it will be a landslide larger than 08' and it will bring us in a huge number of seats.

    •  We have great non-Latino challengers too (0+ / 0-)

        including an Indian-American named Ami Bera who might defeat the odious Dan Lungren near Sacramento (CA-07) and a Japanese-American gay man, Mark Takano, who is running in a new Riverside seat (CA-41). He lost a cliffhanger twenty years ago against the corrupt backbencher Ken Calvert (who is now running in a safer GOP seat nearby).

           The key race closest to me is in Ventura County (CA-26) where our candidate is Assemblymember Julia Brownley in the newly reconfigured seat which is open after the retirement of longtime GOP Rep. Elton Gallegly.

           So what about that other Hernandez guy? That is John Hernandez in CA-21. Is he totally hopeless?
