Jerry McNerney says the 11th Congressional District is always a tough one to win because the political registration between Democrats and Republicans is close.

"It means that I have to be as good a congressman as I possibly can to get elected, which isn't a bad thing. In a district like this, you have to work extra hard," McNerney said.

    I am really looking forward to attending the Harmer/McNerney debate.
    It is scheduled for 7pm on Tuesday 10/23 at Lowell school in Tracy.
    This debate will be enlightening and entertaining---if McNerney shows up.

    I think the icing on the cake is how our Congress voted to scoot out of Washington last week to come home to campaign. This is what we pay them for? We have a campaigner- in -chief running around the country attacking the GOP and the US Chamber of Commerce, trying to stump votes for the DNC. Then a Congress that has crucial issues before them, like the tax cuts, passes a budget enough to keep the government running in their absence and runs home to campaign? The arrogance,, the audacity, the pure disregard for us! McNereny has voted 95% of the time with Pelosi- and yes, Mary, if Pelosi is a moderate, then I guess you can say McNerney is too! And don't get me wrong- if we send Harmer to Congress and he even REMOTELY acts like McNereney, like a lap dog to the party, I will be slamming him in 2012 too! We will keep doing this until we get it right!

    If you think Nancy Pelosi's "moderate", then I guess this guy is, too.

    Mc Nerney endorses ObamaCare and the progressive agenda in general,. He needs to be in a NON political career.

    Moderate? I don't think so. No way, get him out of there. His vote the party line policy lead to the mess we are in. And he refused to hold town meeting, because he didn't want to hear what we had to say. Sorry phone town meetings are for cowards. We must elect Harmer.
