Well, so much for Debbie Cook being “hopeless” or “crazy” or “just a sacrificial lamb”… Or whatever other insult the GOP hurled on her earlier this year when she decided to run for Congress against “Crazy Dana” Rohrabacher. Capitol Weekly now confirms what I and many other astute political observers in West OC have known for months now. And what’s that? Oh, just that THE RACE IN THE 46TH DISTRICT IS A DEAD HEAT!
According to GOP sources, internal polling shows the difference between Rohrabacher and Cook, the mayor of Huntington Beach, to be within the margin of error, although Rohrabacher has heavily outspent Cook. [Republican political analyst] Hoffenblum believes Rohrabacher faces possibly the strongest Democrat to run against him since the current district lines were drawn in 2001.
That’s the good news. And the bad news? The GOP is now preparing to flood the district with cash to pay for slimy negative attacks on Debbie Cook!
So what can we do to fight back? GIVE, GIVE, GIVE UNTIL IT HURTS THE GOP! Sign up to volunteer! Democracy for America Chairman Jim Dean will be here this weekend to rally the troops, so now is the perfect time to call the office at (714) 842-6358 to ask about walking the neighborhood.
Now is the time to act! We can turn this seat blue. We can elect Debbie Cook to Congress. If we work now, we’ll win in 12 days!
