  1. Demo Rep

    1. Rigged packed/cracked gerrymander districts.

    2. Top 2 primary is about the same as the old Donkey primaries in the southern States.

    How about adding *INCUMBENT* on the ballots ???

  2. Jeffrey Turner

    California’s districts are drawn by an independent commission composed of 5 Dems, 5 Reps and 4 Declined to State. So they probably aren’t gerrymandered.

    California is doing OK, so finding two challengers who are both more popular than the incumbent is unlikely, barring a scandal.
