Wyland in or out?

Is Wyland running for Congress?

My sources tell me that his campaign team is reserving slate spots for the State Senate and the Congressional seat for Wyland. I guess they are trying to keep options open.

Wyland will walk right into the State Senate seat. The big question is, does Wyland give up the easy State Senate race for a tough Congressional campaign.

Wyland, who says he is "seriously considering" running for Cunningham's seat, has also made a splash on the illegal immigration front in recent days. On Thursday, he wrote an opinion article for the North County Times on the issue. He also called Thursday for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to declare a state of emergency along the U.S.-Mexico border in San Diego and Imperial counties in an effort to secure the border.

I think Wyland runs for congress - it is just too tempting to pass up and as a self-funder, he has a huge advantage over a crowded field. Morrow has left almost no mark in Sacramento, and he is not that strong of a campaigner. Kaloogian has turned off more people in the last 3 years than just about anyone else in politics. Alan Uke is very wealthy, but unknown and a real eccentric type. George Plescia may be the best campaigner in the field, but I don't see how he raises the money. Look for him to drop into the Senate race eventually.
If this all-male line-up stands, watch out for a Republican women candidate to sneak up on the bunch.

Woman candidate being Pam Slater? Promblem with Plescia is that he doesn't live in the Morrow District. He would have to move.

I think Morrow, and his team of adults, mops the floor with Wyland and his team of college republican leftovers

Pam Slater-Price as a candidate…. !!! She has about as much of a chance getting ‎through a Republican primary as I do winning the Lottery this Wednesday. Slater is the ‎poster child of Republican in name only. Her voting record on the Board of Supervisors ‎is liberally pro-environment, somewhat pro-union and definitely lacking any consistent ‎theme of supporting Republican values. Her favorables are a rich husband who could ‎help fund her campaign and the fact that she currently holds the title Chairwoman of the ‎Board.‎

I like Wyland and Morrow in this race. Save becoming employed by one of them in the ‎primary I hope they run and one of them wins. Both of them would make excellent ‎conservative Republican members of the house. ‎

Not with his wife working for the company that the FBI raided.

I wouldn't underestimate Wyland's team and the network that he was worked to establish in San Diego. Wyland has been a good legislator up in Sacramento and would make a fine Represenative in DC.

I would also look for Plescia's team to try to fly under the radar. That's the strategy that worked for him the first time around in the 75th AD and they will probably try to use it again. If they think that Morrow and Wyland will beat up on each other, they will fly low and try to go with a strong ground game to win. Only problem is, Wyland's staff is too well versed in the ground game. They are all seasoned vetern's from the Horton races. So that leaves Wyland with it all, the ability to sell finance and the ground game. If I were George I would run for State Senate and not waste the time or $$$.

Yeah, that is Wyland. Someone out there might be able to match him financially but no one can beat him.

I say Morrow, Wyland, and Kaloogian slug each other out of the race in the North/Inland area, while a prominent threat emerges from the South to take the San Diego City and the coast all for themselves...yes I am being cryptic...yes it is on purpose...
