    I have never really understood what Mike Thompson was doing representing CA-1. He is quite to the right considering what a safe district it is, maybe even more so with the new lines.

      but it will probably take a bit longer to get to where the san joaquin and inland empire are right now. i do find it intriguing that CA-01 was as close as it was, given how it was supposedly a conservative vote sink. i still think democrats should put an expansion UC campus in redding, just to give that part of the state a nudge leftwards.

      thompson was there because of big money in napa valley, i agree he was a poor fit for that district. i was very pleased with trading him for garamendi, who strikes me as the perfect progressive democrat for the 3rd district.
