In endorsing Carly, JSF at Valley of the Shadow acknowledges me for working the Carly beat and faults her opponent, 3-term Senator Barbara Boxer, for doing nothing for California.
Well, Boxer did name a post office. And change the name of a Court house. Oh, and, she changed the name of a river. But, that was in Virginia.
Maybe people from California vacation there.
“You don’t,” he writes, “need a Democratic Senator to do those Bills; Any Senator of any party can do those bills.” What we need is a Senator who can get the water flowing again in the Central Valley. And Boxer, the Chair of the Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works, has instead been chasing her dream of a cap and trade bill.
Even on her pet issue, she couldn’t get anything done. “Although she is chair of the Environment and Public Works Committee,” wrote the left-of-center editors of her hometown paper, “it is telling that leadership on the most pressing issue before it – climate change – was shifted to Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., because the bill had become so polarized under her wing.”
Help Carly across the finish line so we can have someone in Washington who actually does something for California.
