Gallegly one of targeted 25 in new DCCC radio ads

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

One year before Election Day 2012, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched radio ads in the districts of 25 targeted Republicans nationwide, including Rep. Elton Gallegly of Simi Valley.

The extent of the buy was not divulged, but Republican operatives told the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call that they believed the buy was very minimal -- an attempt to gain some news coverage, rather than actually make impressions on voters with repetitive ads on multiple stations.

Gallegly -- who has not yet announced whether he intends to run for re-election -- would most likely run in the new 26th Congressional District, which includes all of Ventura County except for most of the city of Simi Valley and small coastal strip in the city of Ventura. The voting makeup and history of that district suggest it is one that Democrats can classify as a "pickup" -- one in which most the territory is now represented by Gallegly and could be won by a Democrat in the fall. If Democrats win 25 such districts nationally next year and hold onto the seats they now hold, they will regain majority control of the House of Representatives.

The inclusion of Gallegly in the 25 selected targets is the latest evidence that the new district will put Ventura County squarely on the map in national congressional campaign politics next fall.

Regrettably, for many cloud computing platforms the car example you provide doesn’t work out. If you notice a car as a means to an end, and all of you care about is getting there, then you need an application platform like Google’s AppEngine. Here you merely add an application, and it will be dealt with. If on the other hand you run ec2, you’re no longer worrying about hardware, but still about instances and virtual servers. Every one of them run OS’s that need to be maintained; it’s like taking taxi’s but still having to know everything about the taxi’s engines. I predict that sometime soon we’ll move towards AppEngine like types or ‘managed clouds’.

95 percent accurate
Over the last 25 presidential elections, Ventura County voters have backed the winner 24 times, or over 95 percent of the time. It is one of only a handful of counties in the nation that has been such a predictable bellwether.
