I am going to bed tonight with a nice start for my dream.

That would be the 15TH. Congressional District primary election results becomes a run off between the top two vote getters.

Brendan St. John and Rudy L. Peters.

What a nice thought.

If you wish to make this dream a reality, you may want to move far enough east to leave the district. That’s the only way Swalwell won’t be your representative.

That’s life in a democracy for you.

I’ll first consider candidates who don’t wrap themselves with party flags, or anyone who’s not D or R.

I agree with Dp's sentiment but also recognize the reality of party affiliation for campaign resource support. My vote always goes to the person most in the middle, prioritizing fiscal sustainability over social progressiveness when push comes to shove.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
