Issa's corruption is the world's worst kept secret. The only thing left to decide is HOW corrupt.

Question everything.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of information on the races for the House. I guess it is just too expensive to do a lot of polling. The 270towin site has the Democrats picking up only 7 seats (from 186 to 193) with 14 more seats in the 'tossup' category.

The Dems would have to pick up 32 seats to control the House which seems unlikely. With Hillary carrying such a massive lead, however, I just don't see how there aren't going to be a lot of people who ride her coattails into office. I think the chance is pretty good that the Dems manage to get over 210 seats (they need 218 to control the House). There are very likely to be a lot of surprise victories for the Democrats due to lack of voter turnout for the Republicans.

The fact that the seat is even contested is a sign of trouble. Heavily R district, but in the open primary, he barely beat Applegate.

Past three elections, Issa mopped up the opponent...
