Steve Filson criticized the grassroots group's that have endorsed Jerry McNerney for Congress as being "extreme." He in particular focused his attack on Bay Area progressive's at the forum in Richard Pombo's home town of Tracy, Ca. After I get a transcript or recording to get the specific words I will post them later.
No mention was there of the fact that he (and his staff) campaigned for most of the very same endorsements. Mr. Filson should have told these progressive grassroots groups how he really felt before he sought and lost their endorsement's to Jerry McNerney.
He should also consider that whoever wins the primary is going to need help from bay area and surrounding Democrats, liberals, progressives, environmentalists, and so on; alienating our allies with typical DLC rhetoric is a sure way to make sure you have no outside support.
The only explaination I can come up with is that he's pissed off over not getting some endorsements. I don't know the candidates well enough to choose one over the other, but whoever wins will have my full support as I despise Pombo. Hopefully, if Filson wins the primary, he can mend some fences. If not, he could be a lonely candidate in November.
