House Dems Continue To Experience Even More Recruitment Failures

Democrats are still desperately trying to recruit a credible candidate to run in California’s 21st District. The Bakersfield Californian reports that attorney Emilio Huerta is the Democrats’ latest flavor of the week.

But Huerta’s recruitment seems far from a sure thing. Even Huerta admits that he would be “coming into the race rather late” and appears to realize his long shot chances of making the race competitive in a district that Republicans have carried for two straight elections.

It seems like Huerta is about to be just another name on the list of DCCC recruitment failures the cycle.
