At one point, Dean Andal thought he was through with politics. He has a good-paying job, and he enjoys being home for dinner every night.

But the longtime Stockton Republican's life changed when Rep. Richard Pombo was defeated in the 2006 election by Democrat Jerry McNerney of Pleasanton.

    Jerry McNernery is perfect person to represent our district. His leadership for the people of our district has been a pure breath of fresh air. We are not going back to the stale ideas of the GOP.

    McNerney's contributors: What is an "International Association of Fire Fighters"? What's wrong with an American association of fire fighters? Don't Americans know how to fight fire? As for the Ironworkers Political Action League, I thought America suffered widespread lay-offs in the steel industry, because of its membership in the World Trade Organization. The only time I ever heard McNerney say anything about any treaty, he wanted to make it bigger. I wonder what is the "Ironworkers Political Action League"?
