Something to think about re: CA-Senate Primary

Katie Porter AND Adam Schiff will be out of Congress beginning in 2023, and only one (prospectively) will be in the Senate.

1. Yep. Their choice to do this.

Iím sure both know the stakes. Best of luck to both.

2. I really want Katie to back out and let Schiff run unopposed.

We need her in Congress.

She will still have a great future.

3. Doesn't seem too helpful for the Dems re-taking the House in 2024

To lose a seat (Katie Porters seat is a toss-up)

4. The same is likely true of Barbara Lee, who appears to be running as well.

Lee's seat could not be "safer," and Schiff has a safe district as well.

Porter's district, CA-47, is going to be a tough hold. Former Democratic House Rep. Harley Rouda and CA State Sen. Dave Min (backed by Porter) are likely to square off for the Democrats.

6. But that's the usual. Congressional makeup changes every 2 years anyway.

Every freshman class brings valuable new talent and potential great leaders of the future, but that requires openings to fill.

And Schiff and Porter won't exactly be dying, they'll both remain dynamic political figures whether they remained in elective politics or not. Porter has a very impressive background in the law and so far was able to be a far more effective force outside congress; her ambitions, and certainly her abilities, might take her to high appointed office, including the judiciary.
