And there’s this David Harmer guy who is running, who seems to be a libertarian republican in a largely blue district against a bunch of left wing yahoos more extreme in thought than Tauscher...

He’ll put up a good fight but the democrats will commit some voter fraud which the MSM will conveniently ignore and call any republican who point it out as loons.

CA#10 has a Cook PVI rating of D+11
it is a special election. Perhaps you have some expertise on special elections.
Why is Harmer considered libertarian?
