CA-7 Ami Bera's lead over Dan Lungren grows
So this is kind of fun.
Yes, Rep. Dan Lungren, who is losing, is leading orientation for the new members of the House of Representatives in his capacity as House administration chairman. They guy who is beating him, Dr. Ami Bera, is attending that orientation, which is scheduled through the month of November. Making it all the more delicious, Bera's lead is getting bigger.
As of the previous count from Friday, Bera was ahead by 1,779 votes. As of today's new count that lead has increased to 3,824 votes. That's a trend to applaud.
There's probably about 50,000 ballots left to count in this one. We'll keep you posted on when the next ballot count will be released.
This is going to last, however, at least as long as Lungren's freshman orientation does, and could go into December easily, with what looks now to be an inevitable recount. That means Bera has to retain staff, and prepare for the recount. Which means he's still spending.
Please contribute $3 to keep Bera going.
