Mark Takano is the democrat incumbent in this district that is indeed winnable for a Republican. With resources spread thin, the GOP establishment are looking for easier targets like CA-07 (Ose), CA-36 (Nestande), CA-26 (Gorrell) and CA-52 DiMaio.
Districts like CA-03, CA-09, CA-41 and of course CA-31 are getting short shift.
This makes it odd that Mark Takano and the scum in his inner circle would call on their willing accomplices in the local media to smear Steve Adams.
Could it be the poll that Steve Adams did showing Takano’s favorability rating upside down badly is indeed legit?
I started looking in to Mr. Takano.
What I have found is an extreme left-wing ideologue who is way to the left of this marginal district. Takano is also infamous for parsing his words and appears to try to take both sides of several issues.
In addition, my research shows that Takano is guilty of numerous ethical lapses, dirty campaigning and of course when Takano infested the local college board there were a ton of issues.
CA-41 is an interesting district that I believe should get more attention.
As of the end of last year, the Dems only held a 6.4% registration edge. By means of comparison – two Republican Congressmen sit in districts with differentials of 10% of worse… Jeff Denham and David Valadao. This means, then that Takano is vulnerable.
More frustrating about Takano is his public grandstanding for the little guy while voting consistently to raise taxes, fees and his actions as a congressman to consistently increase everyone’s cost of living.
Maybe this is why Takano’s approval rating is abysmal within the district.
Now, we complete the circle. The local paper apparently has forgotten about who Mark Takano is in the course of doing their duty to support the democrat. The Takano people appear to have spent a lot of money digging up a 20 year old incident from another state, then running a repeated media drill to get the story printed in an attempt to damage Steve Adams.
Steve Adams is a Riverside City Council-member who is running for CA-41.
Dear Mr. Takano – in the words of Rambo, you drew first blood.
Dear Riverside County – prepare to learn more about your congressman and it is my hope that you will join me in firing him in November.
