What districts are within reach to turn from R to D in California?

We're hoping to turn CA-21 from teaklanner Valadeo to Democrat Amanda Renteria. She's doing all the right things, meeting with the right people and getting early endorsements from Hispanic groups here in the Valley.

Are there any other districts that are "turnable" in 2014?

2. Asshole Gary Miller (R) Ca-31 is retiring his seat in a heavily Democratic district

Gary Miller to Retire From Congress
California Rep. Gary G. Miller announced Wednesday he will not seek re-election.
February 12, 2014

"It has been a great honor to spend so many years in public service, striving to make a difference for Southern California families,"Miller said in a statement. "While there is still a lot of work to be done, it is now time for me to pass the baton."

Miller, first elected in 1998, entered this cycle as the most vulnerable Republican up for re-election. He represents a Southern California district President Barack Obama carried with 57 percent of the vote in 2012.

In perhaps the top pickup opportunity for Democrats this cycle, the candidates already seeking the seat include Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar, attorney Eloise Gomez Reyes and former Rep. Joe Baca.

Miller's retirement makes it far more likely that two Democrats will advance beyond the June 3 top-two primary. Emily’s List, which is backing Reyes, released a statement shortly after Miller's announcement noting that her path "just got clearer."


This race is a windfall that just fell into our lap. It appears DCCC is favoring Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar.
