“But her achievements really have been remarkable. It’s a sad commentary on Republicans that they have nothing to run on except demonizing a politician whose track record makes them look pathetic.”

You might be seeing or hearing an ad paid for by the campaign to re-elect Devin Nunes as congressman for the 22nd District. The Fresno Bee is the subject of his ad. Actually, his anger at The Bee is the real subject, but Nunes hides it behind wanting to protect what he calls a family owned winery and vineyard.
More than $1.5 billion would be earmarked for wildlife habitats and rivers or coastal areas, as well as efforts to prepare for climate change. Almost $1.3 billion would be directed toward parks and open space in low-income communities. Another $1.27 billion would go toward water needs, the largest share of that being for flood protection and groundwater needs.
SAN DIEGO (CBS8) – If you are sending in a mail-in ballot, you will need an additional 20 cents. The ballot is two pages, which means it will cost a total of 67 cents to mail it back, not the standard 47 cents.
In a blistering editorial, Nunes’ hometown newspaper slammed his performance as a congressman, calling it “nothing short of embarrassing.”
“He certainly isn’t representing his Central Valley constituents or Californians, who care much more about health care, jobs and, yes, protecting Dreamers than about the latest conspiracy theory,” the editorial stated. “Instead, he’’s doing dirty work for House Republican leaders trying to protect President Donald Trump in the Russia investigation.”

As Nunes struggles to keep his campaign afloat, his Democratic challenger — Fresno County Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz — continues to have fundraising success, taking in more than $1 million in the first quarter of 2018.
Nunes can whine about “radical leftists” and the “nasty” mainstream media all he wants, but blaming his problems on imaginary boogeymen isn’t going to help him. His re-election campaign is failing because he is failing at his job.
