Can someone explain the primary senatorial ballot to me?

There are 24 names on the list, all different parties. How is this a primary ballot? I'm confused.

1. as far as I understand

open primary means the top two get to go on regardless of part affiliation. We may get two dems. I am inclined to vote Levitt sp? as Dianne is certain to be one of the winners

3. Who (besides a repuke, of course) has the best chance to finish second?

That's where I'm going. DiFi peaked when, having lost a bet, she cut the ribbon for Pier 39 in SF wearing a bikini. I't been a long, agonizing slide downhill since then.

4. David Levitt is the Dem name I've seen around DU

that would be nice if we could have Dianne vs a Dem.

Welcome to the David Levitt for U.S. Senate 2012 campaign in California's historic June 5th primary!

We're doing something extraordinary: using our elections to stand up for what Americans want, especially the people of California, when other Senate candidates and incumbents who should be representing us just won't do it.

While we have a detailed policy platform to invest in jobs, renewable infrastructure and education, amid fairer taxes - developed by over 100,000 people known as the Contract for the American Dream - for the June 5th primary election campaign we're focussed on 3 issues:

End Afghanistan End Prohibition Medicare for All

2. This new open primary was

passed as a ballot measure. I don't recall when. Recently, of course.

6. On the bright side, Orly Taitz is running!1!!



This should be entertaining, LOL! Her official campaign website refers to her as "Dr. Taitz" and "Orly Taitz Esquire." And a poll of 500 voters finds that she's the #1 candidate!

Is California THIS crazy? I don't think so.

7. That must be photoshopped. She doesn't look crazy.

Oh my god. I can't believe she hasn't gone away.
