In high desert district, a mirror image of Ventura County situation?

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

If Democrats in Ventura County think Supervisor Linda Parks might create headaches for them by running as a "no party preference" candidate in the 26th Congressional District, perhaps they can get together with Republicans in the San Bernardino County-based 8th Congressional District to commisserate.

Former Assemblyman Anthony Adams, a moderate Republican who was assailed by conservatives because of his vote for a 2009 compromise that produced a state budget balanced with both spending cuts and temporary tax increases that have since expired, announced today he will be running as a "no party preference" candidate in the heavily Republican 8th District. The potential problem for the GOP is that there are five announced Republican candidates already, and only one Democrat. Like Ventura County's 26th District, the 8th is an open seat with no incumbent.

In his statement today, Adams mirrored some of the same points Parks has been making since announcing her intent to run: "my candidacy will not be targeted to the extremes of either party but to the base of both parties" ... "The citizens of this district are fed up with the partisan bickering that has deadlocked Congress" ... "Democrats and Republicans are putting their party ahead of our country. I believe there is a better way."

The new top-two primary creates an opening for candidates who are not aligned with either major party. In June, Adams, Parks and perhaps others will test whether that opening is large enough to seriously test two-party dominance.

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.
