More Nuttiness from Democracy for America
Jim Dean (Howie's brother) sends news that there are three more competitive seats this election, thanks to me!
He points to California's 50th Congressional District, where Francine Busby fell short of 50% in the primary and will go to a runoff on June 6; New Jersey's 7th District; and New York's 20th District.
How competitive are those seats? John Sweeney, the incumbent Republican, took his NY 20th District by a 67%-33% margin in 2004. New Jersey's 7th District went to Mike Ferguson, the Republican, by 57%-41%. California's 50th is a special case, in that Duke Cunningham, the incumbent, is retiring to spend some time as the guest of the federal government. He beat Busby in 2004 by 59% to 37%. Busby got the most votes in a crowded non-partisan primary, but now she will be up against one Republican in the run-off election.
