Primary Races and Party's Welfare

It is a rare experience to open the newspaper and find truly good news. I had such an experience when I read that Nathan Rosenberg was going to challenge Robert E. Badham in the June primary election.

Badham is not only an undistinguished member of Congress but is considered an embarrassment to his district.

Our 40th Congressional District needs and deserves a dynamic, potentially influential representative in Congress.

Your article indicates that Rosenberg could fill that position. I hope he gets the encouragement he is quoted as saying he needs.

Contrary to the statement by the chairman of the Orange County Republican Central Committee, the best thing that can happen to the Republican party in Orange County is to have a good primary race in what is and will remain a "safe" Republican seat.

Presumably, the best representative will win, and obviously he will be a Republican.
