Post-Halloween Scares Continue For Democrats

Today, top-tier Democratic recruit Connie Perez decided to end her bid for California’s 21st Congressional District. Perez filed her statement of candidacy on October 9, 2015 and the Federal Election Commission officially received the filing on October 29… only SIX days ago!

Perez’s 25-day candidacy leaves Democrats with a huge void to fill in what is a must-win district for them. Now that Perez has dropped out of the race, Democrats are left with Daniel Parra, who raised only $15,000 in the third quarter, leaving him with a war chest of $9,485!

Charlie Cook’s pronouncement this morning that Democrats won’t win the House just became even more accurate.
