The GOP nominee for the 27th Congressional is Mark Reed. He will face incumbent Democrat Rep. Brad Sherman in November.
Reed's GOP primary opponent, Navraj Singh, issued this gracious statement following Reed's victory:
Wednesday, June 9, 2010
Congratulations Mark Reed
The Singh Campaign would like to extend congratulations to Mark Reed for a clean, well-executed primary campaign. We stand 100% behind Mark to remove Brad Sherman from office and work to restore the constitutional principles to Congress which will revive our economy, our jobs and our nation.
Good luck and Godspeed!
Reed is facing an uphill battle against Sherman (above) as the district is heavily Democratic in party registration. But he may have a chance if enough Democrats are fed up with the excessive socialistic spending by the Obama Administration and the Democrat-controlled congress. Brad Sherman voted with the administration on the bailouts, TARP and Obamacare. He also supports the Soviet-style industrial policy of Cap and Trade that the Democrat Left is backing which, according to Brian M. Johnson and The Heritage Foundation, will be costly:
Although proponents of the bill are pointing to grossly underestimated and incorrect costs, the reality is when all the tax impacts have been added up, the average per-family-of-four costs rise by $2,979 per year. In the year 2035 alone, the cost is $4,609. And the costs per family for the whole energy tax aggregated from 2012 to 2035 are $71,493.
