CA 50th, potential Congressional Bellweather election

See the Washinton Post Political blog for some election horse-race handicapping for the California 50th district special elections race. If you read the comments you will see that the Dems are trying to set this up as a “we win even if we lose” scenario by stating that this is Republican bedrock district, and that it’s a sign or deep portent if the Republicans don’t win by +10 pts. I’m with Rush Limbaugh on this approach, if the dems want to continue to think that losing is winning, let ’em do so.

This should be interesting although the jury is out on whether special elections ever prove to be bellweathers or not, the data in most previous specials doesn’t indicate a clear trend and the article points out.
