  •  We can build the Democratic base in CA-49 (1+ / 0-)

    At the very least, a Democratic nominee in 2014 (whether Dave Peiser or someone else) loses to Issa but the Democratic Party is able to register and fire up the base in CA-49 to the point where the R+4 rating becomes a R+2 or lower rating.

    I mean, there are quite a number of Democrats in CA-49 and it's got quite a few local Democratic parties.  The district is NOT that red.  Not even close compared to  John Boner's OH-08 district, which is R+15 and from what I've heard, a toxic environment for Democrats right now.

    The Cook Report by the way needs to update it's rating on Issa's district from "Solid Republican" to "Likely Republican" or "Lean Republican."  Rep. David Joyce is in the OH-14 Congressional District and it's got a PVI of R+4, the same as Darrell Issa's CA-49 district.  Why OH-14 gets "Lean Republican" and not CA-49 is beyond me.
