My congressional race. (CA7). How can I vote for the Democrat?

http://www.sacbee.com/news/investigations/the-public-eye/article78992527.html

Ami Bera? Guys supports TPP and his campaign is incredibly corrupt. Dad going to prison for campaign violations and the guy running against him is seriously flawed (Scott Jones, Sac county sheriff who gives out gun permits like they are candy).
I hate politics right now.

Increased gun carry permits ten fold. Teamsters support him. Against TPP.

3. Just realize nobody's perfect, and a Dem seat...

in the House is a Dem seat. he'll be pressured to support The Dem POV for appointments, legislation, and a lot more important stuff than one or two present problems.

As far as the corruption goes, he's far from alone and the questions are-- who's buying him and when he's bought, is he bought for good?

If you had better choices, that would be great, but you don't.

5. Ami Bera will be on the November ballot -albeit in a weakened position

Ca7 is purple district and I'd hate to see it flip. Bummer situation all around, but sometimes you got to do what you got to do.....

Dimes to donuts says Bera will be dipping into some of that unethical campaign money to hire a PR firm to iron out this mess before November.

6. Hes damaged goods, part of the old way

I wish we had a better, perhaps an actual, Democrat running.

So pissed about it all.

9. Well, nothing is going to change for the better this election cycle

The time to start grooming someone to challenge him in 2018 is now.

Your district is more magenta than purple, and if the seat flips it might be impossible to win it back.

Fifty percent of everything or a hundred percent of nothing.

8. I cannot accept corrupt politicians

Or does my, and everyone's, vote, say that we do? When do we say fuck you and throw the bums out no matter party affiliation? If we don't then things ain't never going to change.

is TTP stance is also suspect.

BTW, strong supporter for Bera in both his races against Lundgren. I am so disappointed in him now.
