    TAKE BACK RED CALIFORNIA: Some important candidates in Califorinia

    Take Back Red California (TBRC) is a grassroots partnership that connects northern California Democrats in urban counties with northern California Democratic activists working in rural counties especially on a local level. We formed with the conviction that in order to successfully challenge the Republican's foothold in inland California, our highest priority should be development of and aggressive support for an active local base of Democrats in rural counties.

    The TBRC partnership offers rural counties financial, technical, and volunteer support to build a strong Democratic base and develop long-term Democratic political viability in predominately Republican-held districts...

    Please join us by clicking on Volunteer or Get Involved to give us your email and sign up to receive our newsletter, BackTalk, and to learn more about how you can help keep California “blue.”

    You can join for only $10, a modest investment in California's future. This is how we can win this year and, even more importantly, create a better environment for bringing change to America's political system, energy infrastructure, and economy. Join them and get involved in winning ALL of California for working and middle class Democratic values.

    Dr. Richard Pan: Assembly District 5:

    A must-win race in a tough district

    Alyson Huber: Assembly District 10

    We've gotta keep this hard-fought seat!

    Alyson Huber worked tirelessly in a very difficult race to inch out a win in 2008. Once in office, Alyson has become a strong defender of our Delta resources, working to develop reasonable solutions. She is actively engaged her district, representing generations of farmers, as well as those fast growing communities in the east Sacramento/Amador region.

    This time, we need to be a part of delivering a decisive win so we can send Alyson back to continue representing Democratic principals.

    Jim Reed: Congressional District 2:

    Stretching from the Oregon border to the margins of Sacramento, California's CD 2 has suffocated for decades in the grip of Republican do-nothing Wally Herger. Now Jim Reed is mounting a credible Democratic challenge and deserves our enthusiastic support.

    Jim, a third-generation Californian, operates a law practice in Fall River Mills, just north of Redding. His message for northern California is simple and progressive: a return of representative government free from special interests, tireless attention to fiscal accountability, and help for the small businesses that are California's greatest creators of jobs. With our help, Jim Reed can revitalize CD 2 and help enact policies that benefit our entire state.

    Chris Parker: Board of Equalization, District 2

    You Should See the Size of His District!

    You may not have heard of the Board of Equalization (BOE), but it "administers billions of dollars of California's income and serving as California's Tax Court. It has the responsibility of serving the public through fair, effective and efficient tax administration.

    Chris is dedicated to restoring fairness by closing the tax gap. District 2, is insanely large, stretching from the Oregon boarder to Ventura. His Republican opponent, George Runner, is so self-confident that he has already measured the office in to order carpeting.

    It may not be the sexiest race, but its damned important. Chris is one hard-working candidate. Let's prove that simply being Republican does not qualify you for this position; only being qualified gets you in the door.

    I just now tried to call the number you have posted for Richard Pan. It says a voicemail box has not been set up.
    BTW : His opponent,Pugno , over the weekend was making phone calls. A message by John Eastman (as he said He was a Conservative Constitutional Lawyer who formerly ran for AG. )said he endorsed Pugno. Then ended it with " paid for by NOM of CA " NOM is SLEAZY bunch of people.
