She “even praised a teacher reported to have child porn, saying he was always willing to lend a hand,” one ad said, a charge she disputed as despicable as well as untrue. Ordinarily, an election in reliably Republican San Diego wouldn’t draw much national attention. In this case, Democrats sense an opportunity to score at least a psychological victory if Busby can come close to Bilbray when the votes are cast on June 6. If Busby outpolls Bilbray and wins the seat, it would lend enormous credence to the Democrats’ claim that they are on the road to capturing control of the House. Either way, Democratic fundraising would get a boost headed into the fall. Democrats must gain 15 seats to gain a majority. WASHINGTON – There’s no room for the politically squeamish in the special election for what normally would be a safely Republican congressional seat around San Diego to replace convicted former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham. The two political parties, feeding voters a steady diet of attack ads, are on track to spend a staggering $4 million or more combined in what amounts to a costly, caustic preview of the fall battle for control of the House. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee depicts Republican Brian Bilbray as a veteran of Washington’s revolving door, a former congressman who has also lobbied for the maker of a drug suspected in dozens of deaths and an energy firm that was sued for price gouging. “So while he may not shake things up in Congress he knows how to shake them down,” one commercial says. For their part, Republicans are outspending Democrats significantly House Speaker Dennis Hastert held a fund-raiser for Bilbray. Equally important, Hastert sat down with conservative Republican Eric Roach, one of several party officials who urged him not to run as an independent in the June election. Roach recently announced he would step aside.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
