TRACY CA -- Showing vulnerability, nearly 40% of republicans voted in yesterday's California primary against incumbent US Rep. Richard Pombo (R-CA 11), the notorious GOP anti-conservation chair of the US House Resources Committee.
The Resources Committee is highly important on western and conservation issues, and has a lot of influence on public lands and wildlife in states like Arizona. Pombo's biggest crusade is elimination or severe weakening of the Endangered Species Act, America's most important environmental law.
Good job former congressman and Endangered Species Act champ Pete McCloskey (R) taking on Pombo's zealotry.
Now let's see dem Jerry McNerney take down Pombo in November.
We can't afford Pombo's destructive ways anymore in the congress.
