CA-24: The Strangest Election Result I've Seen

Well, one thing's for sure: Democrats are tired of big business and the insurance industry. So much so, in fact, that Democrats in CA-24 elected to vote in landslide numbers for Marta Jorgensen, a candidate who did not do any traditional campaigning to speak of--including, apparently, not even purchasing the state voter file--simply on the basis of the ballot designation "educator".

Please help Mary Pallant here in Ventura, CA

Mary is one of our deserving yet largely unsung California Democratic challengers. Thanks for this profile and call to action, spoon - Todd

As most of us progressives sit on pins and needles helplessly watchful on the eve awaited Pennsylvania primary, I want to ask you for your help.  I have often written in support of my preferred primary candidate, but tonight there is little supporters of either candidate can do to help.

What we can do, however, is support Democrats looking to fulfill Howard Dean's vision: expand the map, compete everywhere against the Republicans, stand unabashedly for Democratic values, and win in races that we should win, but that no one thought possible before.

Here in Ventura where I live, we have just such a Democrat, and her name is Mary Pallant.
