Secretary of State Debra Bowen conceded the second spot in a Los Angeles-area congressional race Thursday, leaving the runoff between Democrat Janice Hahn and Republican Craig Huey.

Just prolonging the inevitable. No way Hahn loses in this District.

This district borders mine - you’re absolutely correct.

Never say die. If others share your view, Huey will have no chance at all.

He needs volunteers and funds.

This district is gerrymandered to be safely DemocRAT. That may change with redistricting. I hope that Huey can make a strong showing.

We’re lucky the voters will have a choice. It was almost a rat/rat race. Under Cali’s new illegal system there will be rat/rat races. I hope not for any winnable seats.
