Posted: Wednesday, November 24, 2010 10:00 pm | Updated: 6:30 am, Sat Oct 18, 2014.

Democratic Rep. Jerry McNerney has been re-elected to a third term in a Northern California congressional district, fending off a challenge from Republican David Harmer. McNerney held a lead of nearly 2,500 votes on Wednesday with less than 1,900 ballots left to be counted.

His re-election means no California congressional seat changed party hands, even as Republicans took back the U.S. House of Representatives with a national GOP landslide on Nov. 2.

    Being wealthly doesn't mean we are in a healthly financial position. There are many instances where individuals have had extreme wealth only to foolishly spend it all and end up with nothing. Our politicians, both sides, have spent foolishly and now the money pit has dried up. Expenses will need to be cut. Its no mystery on what needs to be done to get our fiscal house in order. The question is do we have the will to do it. We can't just keep kicking the financial can down the road. The sooner we face that fact the better we will all be.

    It would be good to have more folks participating in these discussions. I appreciate Darrell's positive inputs, I respect Steve Schmidt's candid comments as well as those from Manuel and Joe and the others but I wonder why there are so folks few commenting.
    I have followed Mr. McNerney's political activities---and especially his visit to Lodi. Nothing came from his visit to Lodi except photo ops with Larry Hansen and lots of hot air.

    Scott Trotter posted at 9:20 am ...Mr. Baumbach, you know, don't you, that California - the largest and most wealthy state in the Union - has been dominated by Democrats for many, many years? Perhaps they have been doing something right?

    Perhaps... we will soon see the long term results of the domination you refer to... and now, with complete dominance, no one to credit but the democrats for whatever results take place... will be interesting.

    California has the highest Gross Domestic Product of any state in the Union. California's GDP is almost twice that of its closest competitor (Texas).

    Scott Trotter... California is the wealthiest state in the Union? Where did you come up with that statement? Pay attention, California is DEEP in debt. Thanks greatly in part to entitlements for illegals, entitlements for people who CHOOSE not to work, extremely high cost of government because of union involvement and out of control spending by California government morons that have NO clue about how to budget. If any business was run like California government, they would go broke in days. Doing something right?
    Nawww, it will be " business as usual" .

    I'd just like to wish Mr Harmer the best of luck in the next district in which he chooses to run for Congress.

    Dave, I know you tried Utah but maybe someplace in the South, say Alabama or Mississippi might be better suited to your conservative values. After all, folks down that way already have some historical experience in dealing with carpetbaggers.

    Im very glad McNerney won.... now it will be very clear whose policies and legislation is responsible for what ever happens... I see California as a lab for the Democrats to experiment with... now no excuses... just results will tell.

    "His re-election means no California congressional seat changed party hands, even as Republicans took back the U.S. House of Representatives with a national GOP landslide on Nov. 2."

    Local victory! \o/

    However, someone might want to fix the vote count for David Christensen, unless I've stepped into a world where 112,345 is 5.1% of total votes.
