Republicans and Democrats agree on one thing - Lungren is Vulnerable


With the 2010 mid-term elections less than five months away, conservative political pundits have increasingly raised the possibility that Republican’s have inertia and could seize control of the House of Representatives.

Democrat pundits acknowledge they may lose some seats, but they are steadfast in their believe that the conservatives will not be able to pick up the 40 seats needed to wrest control.

While the two sides volley spin, there is one thing both parties agree on – California conservative Congressman Dan Lungren is vulnerable to defeat.

Lungren, a career politician who currently occupies the California’s 3rd Congressional District seat has been targeted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) following the 2008 election. In that election, Lungren won his seat without a majority of voters in a Republican-leaning district that President Obama won.

Bera benefits...

Since then, Dr Ami Bera has secured the Democrat nomination to face Lungren in November. Whereas Lungren’s previous opponents were woefully underfunded, as of the last reporting period Bera has beat Lungren in the all-important fundraising race.

"We feel strongly at this point that only nine incumbents need your help to withstand the attacks by the DCCC and their allies," said Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers, the National Republican Congressional Committee's incumbent retention chair speaking to party loyalist on Monday.

In addition to Lungren, Rogers said the other vulnerable conservatives include California’s Mary Bono Mack, Hawaii Rep. Charles Djou, Louisiana Rep. Joseph Cao, Nebraska Rep. Lee Terry, Ohio Rep. Pat Tiberi, Pennsylvania Reps. Jim Gerlach and Charlie Dent and Washington Rep. Dave Reichert.
