|Gerrymandered 36th Congressional District|
A run-off will be held between the top two. The top vote getters in a field of 15 are:
24.6% - City Councilwoman Janice Hahn (D)
21.8% - Craig Huey (R)
21.4% - Secretary of State Debra Bowen (D)
These monster super-sized districts now run nearly 700,000 people. Only millionaires or those bought and paid for by corrupt special interest money can afford to run. Where contested elections take place at all it becomes a contest between billionaire cartels each looking to purchase the next representative.
Article one; Section two of the Constitution clearly states: "The Number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty Thousand, but each State shall have at Least one Representative." Our Federalist Founders insisted that the People's House actually represent the people and not the special interests. All it takes is a majority vote of the House to expand that chamber, dramatically shrink district size and restore free elections.
