Waxman, Bloomfield Advance in Congressional Contest

Longtime incumbent Henry Waxman, a Democrat, will meet Bill Bloomfield, a candidate with no party preference, in the November general election for the 33rd District.

Longtime incumbent Henry Waxman, a Democrat, easily cruised to a first-place finish Tuesday night in the primary election to fill the 33rd Congressional District seat and will face Bill Bloomfield, a candidate running with no party preference, in the November general election.

Waxman, 72, has served in Congress since 1975 and was expected to handily win in the largely Democratic district.

Waxman was the top fundraiser going into the election and went into the final weeks of the primary with four times as much cash as Bloomfield, the next top fundraiser going into the primary.

Waxman was the top vote-getter with 43 percent of the vote and was followed by Bloomfield with 26 percent of the vote. Christoper David, a 25-year-old Republican, finished third at 16 percent. The other five candidates running in the primary each gained less than 5 percent of the vote.

Waxman moved from his 30th Congressional District to the newly drawn 33rd Congressional District after redistricting altered district boundaries to reflect population changes. The new 33rd Congressional District includes Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach and Palos Verdes and runs north through slivers of Marina del Rey and Venice and also includes Calabasas, Agoura Hills, Malibu, Santa Monica, Westwood, Beverly Hills and the communities of Brentwood, West L.A. and the Pacific Palisades.

Waxman and Bloomfield will square off in the Nov. 6 general election. The winner of California's 33rd congressional race will serve a two-year term starting Jan. 3, 2013. The expansive district is heavily Democratic. Of the 430,618 registered voters, only 28 percent are Republicans.

"The Republic of New Lemuria is an Constitutional Sovereign Nation State" "The people of Republic of New Lemuria desired independence from their former Nation and renamed it and installed a new administration which was approved by the new Senate and the President and adopted a new Constitution that was more to their liking so that the problems of the past would not appear, thereby forming a government of the people based upon spiritual, political, educational humanitarian and democratic principles. All prior treaties acknowledgments and claims were brought forward under the new name The Republic of New Lemuria." Seems to me, like the sort of spirit, that started the experiment in Constitutional republican and democratic self-government once known as the united States of America. The fact is, Jason, you probably have more in common with Mr. McDonald than you are willing to admit. Of course if you demand that he produce "ID", to secure his right to be an "elector" of the state, he might become cross with your ignorance, as well.

Yeah Jason, a wacky former policeman who did some research. Amazing what you find when you start cracking books. Having a J.D. isn't a requirement for understanding the law, though perhaps it helps for a conformist such as yourself. Did Mr. McDonald write Tashiro v. Jordan, or any of the numerous other cases he cites? Having sat down with Mr. McDonald, I can tell you that he has a firm grasp on reality - perhaps a firmer one than your own, Mr. Papers-please goosestepping-Bloomfield supporter. Could you pick a more Quixotic campaign to run disinformation operations for? I suggested that you go there and learn a bit. It appears that all you've learned was how to impugn the character of a man, far greater than yourself. To end your debating, you must have started somewhere. That would be a fairly charitable description of your comments on this board.

Pam, on a planet with over 6 billion possible guesses, I don't think that you could have been farther-off. But your quip is about the level of understanding that you've shown yourself capable of, here on this board - so far.
