Harmer is clearly the more experienced candidate. He has run for Congress three times in three districts in two states. How many politicians can make such a claim? Gotta love Harmer's traveling road show.

Harmer should not even be considered as our Rep. HE DOES NOT LIVE IN DISTRICT !!. We have a fine Congressman in Jerry McNerney who is working hard for us in District 11. Jerry lives in and understands the important issues for all of us in the District 11. Jerry does a great job in Washington D.C. and at the same time has been out in the district on a very regular basis.

Ha! And McNerney lives IN the district, yet DOESN'T represent his constituents! No townhalls, votes 95% with Pelosi, while this district is nearly 40% conservative!

Your democrat talking points are very weak and are not fooling anyone with a brain.

I am sure your 40% conservatives in the district have loved the hard work and the passed and signed bills that Jerry has delivered for our soldiers, veterans and families in District 11. Jerry has made this a very large and important part of his work. This is one of the reasons several major Republicans in District 11 have endorsed Jerry in this election.

Christy, Garimendi didn't live in HIS district when YOU elected him ! ! Is that called hypocrisy ? Fact is, your theatrics are meaningless, since intelligent, informed voters KNOW you do not HAVE to live in the district! ....a few blocks away is JUST FINE ! Ooops, I forgot, your team campaigns TO and lies TO the people you count as your voters....the MORE UNinformed, the better ! FOUR long years of Jerry without ONE original thought is more than enough of Pelosi's ECHO ! !

Voters were smart to reject HARMer in district 10 and should do the same here in district 11. Maybe HARMer can then move on to try to run in district 12, 13, or 14...

Mr Harmer is a fine elder in our ward. He is what every politician should strive to be. He has REAL values. We are very proud of him
