Whoa. Marcy Winograd is running headlong into the teeth of the booming gale again, feeling there might soon be a windshift. Winograd, a local progressive, kicks off her campaign this afternoon at Venice Pier against AIPAC-lovin' Blue Dog Dem Jane Harman.
Winograd also challenged Harman two terms ago, and garnered 38 percent in the June 2006 primary. The issues were similar. In this HuffPo post, Winograd talks of feeling even in 2006 that Harman needed "to be challenged -- on the wiretaps, on the war, and on her collusion with the Bush mob."
It's a seat that has also long been coveted by Hillary backer Janice Hahn, who has not declared interest in this particular election. The District is fairly evenly split between Dems and GOP but has trended Democratic through the past decade.
