Which Candidate Will Get Your Support In The 52nd District Congressional Race?

For the first time in two decades, California's newly drawn congressional districts could play a major role in deciding which party controls the U.S. House of Representatives. In San Diego, Republican Incumbent Brian Bilbray is hoping to fend off a field of candidates, including Assemblywoman Lori Saldaña and Port Commissioner Scott Peters. Whom do you think is the best candidate for the 52nd Congressional District? Share your insights>

dmitryb, whom is used correctly in the article as an object pronoun.

Also, the point of the article is to discuss people who are competitive.

Remember then CA gubenatorial recall election many years ago when Gay Coleman and a pink-boa clad hooker entered the race?

There is a reason they weren't covered much, the number of votes they got were almost nil.

I'm not saying lesser known candidates shouldn't be heard, they should, but this article is not about policy and the candidates but rather this district being in the unique position to determine the balance on Congress.

dmitrybm thank you very much for raising the question about "all" the candidates in the 52 Congressional District race. I am Dr. Wayne Iverson who is one such candidate and despite my strong following as a result of years of San Diego community service was not invited to participate.

This 1st "so called debate" was poorly arranged without all the FEC registered candidates being given proper notice or proper consideration for participation at this event.

I think the San Diego community is best served by forums &/or debates include all the candidates and cover all the issues.

I'm for Saldana. Peters is one of the architects of San Diego's pension mess and financial debacle. First he voted to underfund the pension. Then as As City Council President he lied about the accounting, basically sweeping his dirt under the rug. Furthermore he killed any item for consideration on City Council agenda that would expose the truth or open discussion of the fiasco.

We're still trying to pull ourselves out of the mess helped create. Why should we reward him with another chance to screw things up again--and at the Federal level, no less?

Peters was a terrible City Councilman.He got appointed to the Port Commission through cronyism. In addition he came in a weak third in his bid for City Attorney. I don't see a candidate with such a poor track record getting very far against Bilbray.
