    11 Dems, 5 Repubs, 1 Green, 1 Libertarian, 1 Independent File Papers To Succeed Late Congresswoman Millender-McDonald

    (May 15, 2007) -- 11 Dems, 5 Repubs, 1 Green, 1 Libertarian and 1 listed as Indepedent filed paperwork by the May 14 deadline to have their names appear on a June 26 ballot seeking to become the next member of Congress and representing roughly 80% of LB.

    Signatures submitted on behalf of some candidates remain to be confirmed by the County Registrar-Recorder. We list them with the ballot identifications they provided on their paperwork. The Registrar grouped the candidates by party affiliation, and so do we below.

    In the June 26 election, they'll all appear on one ballot. If no candidate receives over 50% of the vote, the top-vote drawing candidate from each party will go into a run-off in late August (i.e. on which one surviving Dem will face 1 surviving Repub).

  • Republican candidate Bishop "L.J." Guillory, who was one of the first to file, was at the Registrar-Recorder's office at the 5:00 p.m. deadline to see what other Republicans he'll face...and said he'd announced plans to challenge incumbent Dem Millender-McDonald before her passing.

    "I'm not a Republican in the mold of [Supreme Court Justice] Clarence Thomas," Bishop Guillory told "I'm a Republican in the tradition of [slavery abolitionist] Frederick Douglas, letting voters liberate themselves from Democrat politicians who've taken our votes for granted."

    But what about the district's disproportionately Dem voter registration, we asked? "This is a fight for the grassroots, for the voters and against the system," Bishop Guillory said.

    The district's lines were drawn [Gerrymandered] in 2001 by a majority of Sacramento Democrats. Then-Assemblyman Lowenthal dissented and voted no; Assemblywoman Oropeza voted yes.

    The Dem majority's votes erased the former LB Congressional district in which voters repeatedly elected moderate Republican Steve Horn, putting 80% of LB voters in a Carson-focused district held by Democrat then-incumbent Millender-McDonald, elected in a district with a disportionate number of Democrat-registered voters.

    The CA Secretary of State's website says that as of Feb. 10, 2007, the 37th Congressional district's registration was 57.56% Democrat, 19.94% Republican, 18.04% decline to state, and less than 1% each for Peace & Freedom and Libertarian.
