7. sure

http://vote.sos.ca.gov/returns/close-contests/

0.0% in. So I guess what is up is only the mail in votes. Given Huey's love of mailing stuff would probably favor him

8. Not right now, he isn't

37% reporting

Candidate Votes Pct.
Bill Bloomfield 58,572 50.4%
Henry Waxman I 57,731 49.6%

I'd been hearing tons of radio commercials for Waxman the past week or so. I was afraid he was in trouble.

The new 33rd is a D+12 on the Cook index. Maybe he'll still pull it off. Waxman losing to a Repug who calls himself an Independent would really, really suck.

10. Huey lost and Waxman won, but the new district isn't as solid blue as it use to be

I expect more hotly fought elections now. For whatever * reason way too many young people in the district have fallen in love with Ron Paul and the fake libertarian movement. How do you support prop 37 AND Gary Johnson... but they did. Democrats need to campaign harder in this state to remind young voters what the party stands for.

11. Yes, the battles will be hard-fought.

I supported the redistricting, because the little districts had our reps/senators becoming complacent and too comfortable. There needs to be a lot more communication between our representatives and us, and these new districts will make that necessary.

YES, we need to remind young voters what the party stands for.

I am very happy at the outcome!

Waxman got almost 54% to Bloomfield's 46%. I call that a sizeable victory.

12. They are getting sneaky

Bloomfield was "independent", Craig Huey had blue yard signs.

The good news is the district was targeted not too long ago as a swing district and Democrats put large amount of money here and moved it back blue. The Republicans are so unorganized that it felt like Dems didn't "try" hard this cycle. But then I feel I'm as guilty as anyone as I didn't do very much this cycle either.

It was nice driving to work past all the Measure J is racism signs knowing its supporters lost. These are some very sick people running against Waxman. Waxman came to my work before the election, he's a good man.

14. I'm so glad Huey lost, I knew him in college

and he was just as bat-shit crazy then was a member of YAF.

13. I like the LA Times results page...

http://graphics.latimes.com/2012-election-results-california/

Pretty cool...I can't believe the percentages! I'll say that 99% of my votes agreed.

So the Waxman vs. Bloomfield thing...kind of left me scratching my head. I'm all about Dems, Libs, Progressives...but
Waxman seemed to have disappeared from site...yes, he did good stuff in the past and maybe it is because of the Pukes
being in control of the House. Then Bloomfield...I met him, several times. He seems like a very nice guy and I understand
anyone wanting/saying that they just want to stop the gridlock...HOWEVER, that being said...I simply could not get
over him being a life long Republican (I'll be generous and not even say Puke)...when push came to shove, would he side with
American citizens or with Big Business? My partner really felt that he would have worked to get things moving but I just could not even get over that he had traveled with the McCain campaign. I also want to add, that something that really turned off my partner was that he tried several times to get in touch with Waxman's campaign and got treated REALLY rude! In the early part of the campaign, we were getting stuff
from Bloomfield but nothing from Waxman (and we had not seen him...nor heard anything) and partner wanted to know
what was going on...he was told that our area was not important to Waxman's campaign...say what??? WELL, partner was furious and
that solidified his vote for Bloomfield. On the sly, I voted Waxman and my Mom voted Waxman.

Let's hope Henry can get some of the Pukes and Baggers moving in the House.

p.s...Peggy, I love your posts and comments. I "lump" you in with several DUer's, that as soon as I see their name, it's
a post that needs to be checked out! Thanks for the great work and cool, calm, collected and measured messages (gee,
just like our President).
