SignOnSanDiego.com > News > Politics -- Rough start for some as voting begins: "Among the races generating a lot of interest was the fierce battle between Republican Brian Bilbray and Democrat Francine Busby to replace former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham, who resigned from his 50th District seat because of a bribery scandal. Cunningham was sentenced to prison after admitting he took $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors."
The race in CA-50, which is both a special election to fill out the remainder of Duke Cunningham's last term, and a primary to determine, who will run in the Fall, is possibly the most important election of the day.
If the Democrat wins in this heavily Republican district, it will signal that the political Storm is definitely on the horizon, the Storm that will wash away Republican control of Congress. Otherwise, which is more probable, it will signal that the country has not been moved sufficiently to ensure that the Republicans lose control. It will reinforce the ambiguous, but discouraging message of Paul Hackett's loss to a vicious sunt in Ohio.
Frankly, I'm betting on the Republican lobbyist winning the election. The American suburban fascist is corrupt and rotting, and that is who votes in Califoria's 50th district.
