    I would say a race between a beyond safe Senator and a crowded field in a primary is a bad example whether a Top 2 is a good or bad idea (I’m ambivalent on the topic, since I think out FPTP system is the worst possible situation regardless.)

    However, according to the results, there were a couple of “upsets.” The Democrats didn’t get their favored candidate in CA-21 and the Democrats are completely out of CA-31 Top Twodue to a 4-way split primary. Now, in most races, it’s going to be Republican vs. Democratic. Surprisingly, you can change a whole political system in one election cycle. 🙂Report

    We have redistricted Dems Berman vs. Sherman, which is enjoyable in that Iraq-Iran sort of way.

    Just found out I was redistricted from a solid Rep district [72-yr-old Cold Warrior Buck McKeon] to a solid Dem one [Adam Schiff, not bad as Dems go]. Also got bumped into a liberal Latino council district where the sexual harassment Democrat will faceoff with the criminal one in November.


    God bless California. I love LA.Report
