Oh boy. Can we please, please get rid of this guy.

It's embarrassing to live in his district. Thanks for keeping up this blog. It gives me hope.

I've lived in this district most of my life, and as a very young kid worked for Al Lowenstein before they gerrymandered him out.

Allard Lowenstein, a blast from the past. Held office for all of 2 years back in the early '70s, come on, this is the 21st century and the district is solid Republican. As for the debate, you're going to honestly tell me that people were swayed by the debate? that they went in undecided and came out fully educated? The debates are a waste of time nowadays because one half of the audience was for Pete, the other for Dave. No minds were changed.

Regarding the district being solidly Republican. does the GOp have an advantage here? Yes, but keep in mind it is a district Gore won by 13 points (about 9 under the current lines) and the only reason bush won last time was the 9/11 bump he received in the metro area that is long gone. While it is the most GOP district it is trending Democratic and actually is Democratic for the most part on the Presidential level.

I agree that not many minds were swayed at the debate, but some may have. And debates are still a useful in seeing the candidates side by side and how the handle themselves. Dave handled himself very well, and King did mostly too, at least for him. He was his usual pompous self, and lied about many things, also as usual. And it was not half and half in the audience. There were many more Mejias supporters.
