Post Election News Round Up

Jerry Wins!

"On Tuesday, November 7, Jerry McNerney declared victory in the campaign for the 11th Congressional District seat held by Richard Pombo. Before hundreds of supporters at the Victory Party in San Ramon, McNerney thanked his amazing volunteers. "Look where we are now. We're on the cusp of changing the direction of this country, a mighty country. And we're going to change it for the good. We're going to work together to make this world a better and safer place. And you all have been a very big part of this. I thank every single one of you."" (source)

"The "Jerry McNerney for Congress" sign outside his campaign headquarters has been crossed out. Somebody's scrawled in red: "U.S. Rep. Jerry McNerney!"

The exclamation point of amazement says it all.

On Tuesday, McNerney, a little-known Democrat with a math Ph.D. but no experience in elected office, shoved out one of California's most powerful Republican incumbents even though nobody thought he could.
