Washington conventional wisdom has already written off prospects of Democrats sustaining a majority in the house, and perhaps the Senate as well?
Local angle in this story is evidenced by PW posts criticizing David Harmer. With 3 1/2 months to go, the best line that Democrats supporting Jerry McNerney have come up with is that David Harmer lives in the CD-10 portion of San Ramon, so he's a "carpetbagger", and he "took a TARP bailout" which actually was bonus and severance money from Washington Mutual Bank, his employer, who laid him off when he was made redundant by the Chase buyout of WaMu.
"Do extensive opposition research and targeted messaging in the fall to delegitimize Republican candidates in the minds of centrist voters."
Support the demise of Nancy Pelosi's political power in November, support David Harmer in CA-11. Harmer needs your support, the unions and rich libs in Berkeley and the Bay Area will pour money into Jerry McNerney's campaign. Jerry has got to go.
