Jerry McNerney - Democrat for Congress

"Despite being heavily outspent by Pombo and getting attacked in recent weeks, Jerry McNerney has successfully maintained his lead over Pombo since the last poll we conducted in May for Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund. Currently, McNerney garners the support of nearly half the electorate (48 percent) and continues to lead Pombo, who only attracts 46 percent of the vote. The race is essentially unchanged from our May survey, though there are now even fewer undecided voters (only 6 percent), leaving Pombo with very little room to increase his support." (source)

"Brace yourself for McNerney hit piece number ten. That's right, the NRCC reported yet another $38,475 independent expenditure yesterday, bringing their anti-McNerney spending in CA-11 to $386,913. If you add in the $37,145 they've spent doing polling for Richard Pombo which is apparently so bad that they're afraid to release the results, that brings the grand total that the NRCC has spent in the last two months in CA-11 to $424,058.DCCC spending, still zero."

"The president's approval rating is now lodged at 29 percent, the poll found, and 61 percent disapprove of his job performance. That's in large part because of Californians' concerns about the bloodshed in Iraq. Just more than one in four Californians approves of how the president is handling the war.

The governor's challenger, state Treasurer Phil Angelides, and the Democratic Party are trying to saddle Schwarzenegger with the president in the hope that Bush will be a drag on the Republican governor.

Not surprisingly, the governor will not appear with Bush when the president visits California on Tuesday. As Bush raises money for Republican Congressmen Richard Pombo and John Doolittle, Schwarzenegger will take part in bipartisan campaign events to promote a multibillion infrastructure package for rebuilding roads, schools and levees.

"Each weekday, tens of thousands of former Bay Area residents drive west from their new homes in San Joaquin County to jobs in the East Bay and Silicon Valley.

Less expensive housing has lured them east, but the draw of higher-paying jobs west of the Altamont Pass keeps them tied to the Bay Area.

Nowhere has the area's growth been more pronounced than in Tracy -- the hometown of Rep. Richard Pombo, the Republican rancher and powerful House Resources Committee chairman making his bid for an eighth congressional term in a year when a Democratic, anti-incumbent wave seems to be building across the nation.
