Re “This ‘safe’ Republican congressman is losing the race for campaign cash” (sacbee.com, Jan. 31): What a race we’re having here in California Congressional District 4, reaching from Lake Tahoe down to King’s Canyon. The largest population is in the Roseville-Granite Bay-Lincoln-Rocklin-Auburn area. Many in CD 4 feel Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Elk Grove, who is not a district resident, represents his own interests rather than ours. Why not run against Rep. Ami Bera, D-Elk Grove, in Congressional District 7 where McClintock lives? What a carpetbagger. We’ve attracted three candidates, all running hard to send McClintock somewhere else. Three could be good. Or bad. Consider the June top-two primary. I’m with previous hopefuls Charlie Brown and Bob Derlet. We waited until now to handicap the field, and we all are with Jessica Morse, who at this time shows the most money. My advice to primary voters: if you vote for anyone but Morse, your vote is to keep our carpetbagger for another two years.
