    That there is a Dem in the race but I don't know how much support he's getting from the party. His name is  Dave Peiser and if the party doesn't give him enough support we should. The mistake the party made with Barbara Buono in New Jersey should not be repeated.

    •  I know about Dave Peiser (0+ / 0-)

      My group, Knowledge Democrats, and I have been reporting on Dave Peiser for MONTHS.  What amazes me is that SO many people on Daily Kos continue to claim they're from CA-49 or nearby, think Darrell Issa is unbeatable yet know so VERY little about information in CA-49.

      CA-49 has 29% Democrats and 25% Independents along with 41% Republicans.  In a hypothetical, where all or most of the Democrats & Independents vote for Dave Peiser or another Democratic nominee, Issa loses by over 6% points.

      Also, certain people need to be aware that from September 2012 - February 2013, for each the 29% Democratic and 25% Independent side, 2000+ voters increased for each.  But only 225 lousy Republican voters were registered.  And this is in a district that includes San Clemente where President Richard Nixon once bought property in the late 1960's!  You'd think the CA Republican Party would have its act together considering the most powerful Republican in California resides in one of the most traditionally conservative regions in California.

      Nowadays, San Diego County is purple territory and Democrats as of the last general election cycle have a slight edge over Republicans in voter registration.  Doesn't mean things are easy for the Democratic Party from here on but there's room for growth.

      And don't even try to compare Barbara Buono vs. Chris Christie race.  California Democratic Party, unlike NJ Democratic Party, is not in the same boat and actually consists of Democrats who are REAL Democrats and not hypocritical "you-scratch-my-back-I-scratch-yours" supporters of Chris Christie.  CA-49 is in a completely different situation and CA Republican Party is as popular as dog poop in CA right now.  What can you say when Gov. Jerry Brown has produced a budget surplus.
