Wow. Other than the mayoral election plus CD 11, there are no competitive races. I'm not complaining about the current slate of local leaders, but I would like to see some more competition during mid-term elections. I guess we will have to wait another four+ years.

I think you're going to find CD5 to be a very competitive race. Weiss is weak and pretty much hated by lots of homeowners groups over the Century City and Santa Monica right of way fiascos. Keep an eye on this one. One of the challengers is raising money hand over fist!
