Re "Warning of 'liberal takeover' McClintock raising cash against GOP opponent" (March 11): After Republican Art Moore filed to run in District 4, Congressman Tom McClintock sent out an email pleading for money and claiming a well-funded conspiracy. His story is ridiculous. McClintock has over half a million dollars in campaign funds as of the March 31 filing, 17 times more than his challenger.
California's primary system gives us a competitive election, a basic principle of our great country. We can vote for Moore, a Republican with traditional values who will work for this district. The other guy is a do-nothing career politician who makes up bogus stories to scare his donors, and they mostly won't know any better since they don't even live in the district.
