    California's Republican Party is losing steam and its brand is literally down to the liking of dog food.  It's seriously that bad for GOP in California.  They lost at least four (I believe four) seats in the House in California and I believe there will be at least three more (Jeff Denham, Gary Miller, Buck McKeon) the GOP will lose in 2014.

    Right now the GOP's only hope in California is Abel Maldonado but he's a moderate and the GOP in California don't like moderates.  Hence, they have no chance in hell of unseating Ami Bera, Scott Peters or even Jerry McNerney, who has survived every single challenger in 2008, 2010 and 2012 since he was first elected in 2006.

    •  Abel was unable to win (1+ / 0-)

         in the last two races he ran.  He lost his seat as an incumbent (appointed) Lt Gov and then he lost as a challenger against Rep. Lois Capps.

          Now he is going to go up against Gov. Brown, which is even more of a guaranteed loss than the last two runs. He might not even make the top two against Jerry if there is another visible Republican candidate running (like Assm. Tim Donnelly).  Abel may be more moderate than his brother Cain, but he is still a loser.

           I still would be watching the Bera and Peters races since the first re-election is always the hardest. The guy running against Peters is not just Some Dude, but a former S.D. Councilmember who was one of the top candidates for Mayor in the recent election.
