Saturday, February 04, 2006 @ 11:00 AM-2:30 PM
Hollywood United Methodist Church
6817 Franklin Ave.
Hollywood, CA, 90028
(at the corner of Highland and Franklin)

Come to a FREE rally where General Wesley Clark will inspire the troops and lead the charge to take back the House of Representatives in 2006! We are bringing Democrats together from all over Southern California to support Democrat Francine Busby, who is running for indicted Republican Duke Cunningham's old seat (CA-50) in a special election April 11th.

Join Democratic candidates from red districts all over Southern California to support Busby's quest, including: Jill Martinez & Mary Pallant (CA-24), Russ Warner (CA-26), David Roth (CA-45), Roberto Rodriguez (CA-25), Florice Hoffman (CA-40) , Louie Contreras (CA-41)and Jim Brandt (CA-46). They will unite behind her by sending "Buses For Busby" - filled with local activists - to San Diego this Spring to help win this first important battle in the war to clean up the House and reclaim a majority for Democrats.

Well, that's probably confirmation regarding Rodriguez running in the 25th. And it's cool to hear that someone will be running against Lewis too.

RBH, check a little closer before you start jumping for joy. I'm not sold on a candidate just because he calls himself a Democrat and decides to run. (And if I've learned one thing about Rahm Emanuel's regime at the DCCC, I now know that even if someone calls himself a Democrat it doesn't mean he's not a Republican!) I don't know much about Contreras-- I've been looking at his website and I spoke to him on the phone one and a half times-- and I'm reserving judgment. I am so into getting rid of Lewis that I should be sold and should be writing a check to help. But I have to know more about him, why he's running and how he feels-- and plans to vote-- on the issues. You don't get that on his website and I didn't get it on the phone. I keep telling myself he's new to this and he'll be fine, just give him a little time. Maybe that's the case. Or maybe not.
