  •  You can count on my district turning blue. (7+ / 0-)

    CA-31 - gerrymandered blue, but due to California's stoopid top two law, a herd of Dems primaried each other to oblivion and we got two GOPers in the general. Believe me, next time, there will be one Dem in the general. One House seat turned from Red to Blue here!

      explain what happened there?  This is the race/district I want to work on in 2014, though I am in OC. Poor folks, ya got my old congressman, Miller, who is a shitbag from the ground up. A bagger and just horrid.

      202-224-3121 to Congress in D.C. USE it! You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage them. "We're not perfect, but they're nuts."--Barney Frank 01/02/2012

        saw this district as a gimme-blue district and decided to go for it. I don't really know how the central committee works in this district, but apparently they don't have the leverage (or desire) to get some people to give up.

        Yeah, we got Gary Miller. Just after I was so pleased to get rid of Jerry Lewis, too. And Jerry Lewis was at least a king of pork. I hate having every damn thing around here called the Jerry Lewis blah-blah (concert hall, hospital, overpass, park, etc), but you at least got to give the guy some cred. I have a feeling we won't be seeing Gary Miller blah-blahs anywhere.
