"Jenkins: 'A' word: Bilbray's scarlet letter losing luster" Another Repub bites the dust - San Diego

Source: North County Times

"The political stars are not lining up for Brian Bilbray, the North County congressman who appears to have narrowly lost to Democrat Scott Peters the privilege of representing the new, more southern 52nd District."

The North County Times is calling it for Democrat Scott Peters in San Diego. I always get nervous about celebrating too early - but it's looking good.

2. About time

Talk about being taken for granted. This guy has had San Diego in his hip pocket for so long. I know this one had to hurt Karl and crew. They haven't had to spend but a token for elections here for years and now that they did they lost!! Ha ha!!!!
But I am sure it was Obama offering free weed or something to the laid back so-cal crowd! Ha ha Brian find a new lobbyist job asswipe!!!!!

6. He had to spend a lot of money this go round. Peters did too. Bilbray will go back to lobbying.

3. This would be an important pickup!!

San Diego area is a huge military area. In addition to being the host of a major Pacific fleet anchorage, there is Pendelton Marine base in the area.

A Democratic representative in congress is just what the doctor ordered.

Buh-bye Bilbray!

12. Yeah I guess he surfed, but he was always anti environment & pro big business

& quite the opportunist - He would jump on any photo op & any opportunity that would line his pockets.

10. I Called His Office in Solana Beach

 

and told them to take me off the mailing list. They responded, " Does it come from here or a PAC, i.e. the Lincoln Club?" Just stop sending me that shit. Brian Bilbray-more jobs and less spending? Fucking liar. Bye bye asshole.

13. I'm glad Brian Bribery, eh, Bilbray lost. The way he gained his seat was borderline illegal.

He even tried to shamelessly use his daughter (who has a terrible disease) to win re-election this time, to try to play on the sympathy of us San Diego voters.

Didn't work.
