Nope, not even in the USA this time…

Saturday, June 30th, 2007

…but it looks like our man Russ Warner is going to have another go at it. Good for him. This blog had some coverage of the pre- and post- primary race last time around (Warner lost the primary, quite disappointly; I’m sure his campaign won’t let that happen this time). Now, I don’t anticipate restarting […]

A SethInCA Project: Help engage Cynthia Rodriguez Matthews with the Netroots

Monday, June 19th, 2006

(Cross-posted at Daily Kos, Calitics, and MyDD) The short version: I’m going to go interview Cynthia Rodriguez Matthews, the Democratic candidate for Congress who’s challenging David Dreier in CA-26. I’d like to encourage her to become involved with the netroots, and as a start I want to reach out to her with your questions. Please […]

Another blog covering this race

Sunday, June 11th, 2006

And I thought I was alone. Turns out there’s yet another blog covering the race in CA-26: In 2004, Dreier outspent Matthews 50 to 1 yet received the lowest percentage of the vote during any of his elections since 1980. 2006 is the year to remove him from Congress. Click here, here and here to […]

Decided to check who was linking to me…

Saturday, June 10th, 2006

There’s a class at Cal State blogging the same congressional race as I am??? How did I miss this in my obsessive Technorati / Feedster searching? Here’s my favorite post: Quick note about Cynthia Matthews victory… Don’t feel obligated to change your papers that were written assuming a Warner victory. From an educational standpoint, the […]

$40k Push Poll?

Friday, June 9th, 2006

So far, this is the most intriguing of answers to my question about how the Warner campaign lost it. I wonder where I can get another source on this (from the comments on my MyDD diary): Wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t heard it myself, but Wes Clark – here in Vegas for the […]

CA-26: An Election Day Mystery

Thursday, June 8th, 2006

[cross-posted at Daily Kos, MyDD and Calitics] A week ago, I wrote a diary here asking for suggestions for starting a new blog to cover the race in CA-26. Two nights ago, I watched and reloaded, slightly disbelieving the preliminary results in the Democratic primary in CA-26, David Dreier (R-Closet)’s district. Russ Warner, endorsed by […]

Post mortem?

Wednesday, June 7th, 2006

There’s a few comments below lamenting Warner’s defeat. Does anyone have insight into what happened with the campaign? I’m reluctant to try to do a post mortem right now considering how far off I was (just scroll down and you’ll see). Maybe this will be a much more personal blog after all. Posting this for […]

That was unexpected:  Democratic Cynthia Rodriguez Matthews 12,836 47.0 Russ Warner 10,308 37.8 Hoyt Hilsman 4,172 15.2 Melvin C. (Mel) Milton 3,295 8.2 Sonny Sardo 10,692 26.9 * David Dreier 25,852 64.9 Clearly something is going on in this district. One piece may be who bothered to vote. Over at MyDD, Matt Stoller makes this […]

Polls Closed

Tuesday, June 6th, 2006

Polls closed half an hour ago. The Warner camp says exit polls have Warner taking an early lead. Here’s a picture of the Warner rally (along 210), which I hear got a lot of support from passing motorists:
