Special Election To Pick Cunningham's Replacement Tomorrow
Lots of folks will be watching this election.
Voters in California's 50th Congressional District -- formerly represented by Republican Randy "Duke" Cunningham, who resigned after pleading guilty to taking bribes -- will vote tomorrow in a special election that is viewed as a bellwether on Republican chances to hold the House this fall. In any other year, former representative Brian Bilbray (R) would probably win the race handily in this GOP-leaning San Diego area district, but Democrat Francine Busby, a college professor, has mounted a serious challenge.
Alabama, California, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota also have primaries tomorrow.
