  •  Closest competitve districts for Claremont (4+ / 0-)

    are CD-31, where Pete Aguilar is rated Likely D, and AD-40, where Katy Henry is rated a tossup.

    AD-40 starts in Rancho Cucamonga, so just a few miles east of us.

    CD-31 starts at Mills Ave, so I'm sure you are familiar with the saga of how we missed top two last year and almost shot ourselves in the foot again in June.

    A little farther afield AD-65 starts just down the 57 at Imperial Hwy, where Sharon Quirk-Silva pulled off a miracle last cycle and is now rated as a tossup as the incumbent.

    Iron sharpens Iron. Normal is a dryer setting. STOP illegal immigration NOW! -- Make it LEGAL. If Corporations are People--Let's draft them.

      You are right that we almost blew it again this year and just pulled it out by a couple of hundred votes.

        I tried very hard to convince my family to vote Aguilar, too, but couldn't. They said that primaries are where you vote your heart. Vote party in the general.

        I kept saying, as long as we have Top Two, you can't vote your heart EVER. If you want ANYONE to vote for in the general, you have to vote the party choice in the primary.

        As we all sweated out the count, they understood and they now agree with me.

        Top Two is where conscience went to die. Vote party.
