The Plot Thickens
There’s a new Democratic candidate in the race for the CD-11 seat currently held by Richard Pombo. His name is Steve Thomas; he lives in Danville; and you can find out every bit as much as I know about him by going to his website. The site is still under construction, but already he has a better-looking front page than any of the other candidates, and he has a strong populist/progressive stance on the issues. He claims to be a union member who can rally union support to his campaign. We’ll have to see if he’s right. Compared to Thomas, the other Democratic candidates all look like Goliaths in terms of organization and fundraising capabilities –- and, of course, we all know that they are dwarfed by Pombo’s base of powerful and moneyed special interests.
Welcome to the race, Mr. Thomas.
