District 7 in CA needs everyone's help.

We are in serious danger of losing a seat in the House. Ami Bera is running unopposed on the dem side, however his opponent is a right-wing, anti-immigration nut. Unfortunately, Ami supports TPP and is backed by lobbyist money. Many voters in this district are furious at Ami to the point that many will not vote for him come November. Either we need to find a challenger before June(although it's probably too late now), or we threaten Bera with our votes in order for him to yield to our working-class agenda.

We don't want Scott Jones to win, but if Ami keeps up his third-way bull---- than his political career will end on November 8th.

1. I forgot to mention that Bera is in the middle of a scandal that is already getting media-play.

2. Bera's opponent supports Trump

Which has made the Teamsters pull their support from said opponent. Some things are more important than TPP, evidently. Bera's scandal is not that he takes lobbyist money it's that he didn't handle it totally legally.

4. Oh I know the difference between the conflicts of the scandal. It was the fact that he's...

 

taking lobbyist money AND is in a scandal that I was pointing out. Also, I had no clue that the teamsters even supported Jones. That alarms me more than anything. I have a feeling Bera won't be able to escape this time around, the disappointment is too great now and the fact that he BARELY squeaked by Ose(a pathetically weak opponent) last time is cause for great concern.

3. It's definitely too late now. It's only him and the Republican.

The June top 2 election doesn't do anything for 2 candidate races. It's basically just a straw poll for November.
