We have hope in 51 st District, Southern part of San Diego/Chula Vista BORDER AREA etc.
Nick Popaditch (R) Marine Veteran is running against incumbent Bob Filner (D). Popaditch is the famous cigar smoking tank commander shown at the tear down of the Statue of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. Filner refuses to hold Town Halls and debate Popaditch. Filner is one of the most liberal reps in the House. Grassroots are working hard for Popaditch. People of all parties are marching in front of Filner's Chula Vista Office every Thursday afternoon until he debates Nick... Everyone welcome, let's shame Filner into debating and holding Town Halls. Popaditch sure could use some donations, and his chances are looking good.
Filner has ticked off a few people and one has this website, lots of info and more videos of the Bum:
Here is video of Filner "supporter" coming out of his office talking about bringing a Mexican flag and that Chula Vista and San Diego are Mexican communities, Filner is a pro illegal alien amnesty and ultra left wing chicken! :

Oh yeah for those that don't know it Filner is a red diaper baby, his father Joseph Filner was a registered Communist. Unbelievable this clown has been in office so long. Help vote the bum out!
Post a link for contributions! I’m sure he can use them......
Looks like he wants open borders and wants people to be able to vote without showing documentation.
Looks like he wanted to impeach both Bush and Cheney for supposedly lying about Iraq (wonder if he would impeach Obama for lying about his birth certificate?)
Looks like he’s pro-abortion and has no problem with kids being transported across state lines to avoid parental notification.
Looks like he’s soft on criminals.
Looks like he supports a communist Islamist group in Iran.
Looks like he’s a tax and spend liberal.
Looks like he doesn’t want the drug laws enforced - and particularly doesn’t want enforcement to prevent Mexican drug gangs from getting drugs into the country. That, right there, should be a killer for him, if anybody has been paying attention to what those drug gangs are doing. I didn’t look at the video you linked to a while ago showing what these gangs do because I had a bad experience almost going into shock from watching a beheading, but with the violence that is going on and coming always nearer, his nonchalant attitude about keeping this stuff out of America should be poison to his chances for re-election.
The evasion of questions reminds me of other (corrupt) government entities I’ve dealt with.
And whoever it was who mocked Popaditch’s eye patch deserves a swift kick in the shins, or maybe a little higher than that and more hard than swift.
Good luck on getting him replaced.
The link to the Popaditch site didn’t work. Not sure what’s up with that.
Are there recent polls on this race?
Also - I loved the section about the Alinsky tactics on the voteoutthebum site. Gosh, are those ever familiar. lol
This link for Popaditch’s site works: http://www.popaditchforcongress.com/
Here’s the page to contribute:
Thanks, apparently I messed up the link to his campaign site:
This is the year of throw the incumbents out and we are due for some new ideas and Popaditch is big on jobs, and responsible, honest government. I think he will help secure our Nation and our borders. Filner wont debate him because he will get annihilated..Filner is an arrogant bum who already had a couple of “do you know who I am” encounters. He has a temper and seems to think the seat is his. Lets give him the boot!
Hey, Bokababe. Is there a CA ping list? Do you know how a person could ping such a list if there is one? Thanks!
Hmm. Looks like that didn’t work.
Lose the Chicken suit. No one will take you seriesly. Really.OTT, good luck in Nov.
The district was almost 40% Hispanic (redistricting in 2000 made it 53% Hispanic) and heavily Democratic, and his victory in November (with 57 percent of the vote) was a foregone conclusion. He has been reelected six times with no substantive Republican opposition. He ran unopposed in 1998.
Filner is ranking Democrat on the United States House Transportation Subcommittee on Aviation. He is a founding member of the Progressive Caucus. In 2007 Filner became chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.
Filner has a bitter rivalry with Juan Vargas, another Democratic politician who has run against Filner in the Democratic primary three times. Filner won the latest Democratic primary, on June 6, 2006, with 51% of the vote, in a race against Vargas and two minor challengers, Danny Ramirez and Jesse Bresnihan. Filner and Vargas have accused each other of corruption.
He was one of the 31 who voted in the House to not count the electoral votes from Ohio in the 2004 presidential election. 
Given IN 1 is a lost cause, I have gladly donated to “reejin” native Nick Popaditch. He is the real deal; and any support people can give to “Gunny Nick” wil be appreciated
This website, http://votethebumout.weebly.com/, is great.
You guys keep up the great work out there.
The best line ever delivered by anyone running for office:
"I'm not interested in reaching across the isle to anybody who's wrong!"
Nick Popaditch, aka Gunny Pop
when they have the opportunity to vote for this AMERICAN HERO?
Filner ranks amongst the worst of the worst
He may be the finest addition to Wash DC this year!
I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU!
More Jobs in the 51st District
Nick says, “The best way to create jobs is to keep more money in the district and lower taxes for EVERYBODY, not just some. You should decide how to spend your money, not Washington.”
Nick says, “I pledge moral clarity and real commitment to the limited government promised by our Constitution.”
Strong National Defense
Nick says, “Our Constitution clearly defines the RESPONSIBILITY of the Federal Government to provide for the Nation’s security. This is absolutely necessary in today’s dangerous world”
Nick says, “Our Constitution DEMANDS that the Federal Government provide security for its citizens here at home. Enforce current laws to promote legal immigration.”
Strong Family Values Nick says, “The only institution ‘Too Big To Fail’ is ‘The Traditional American Family.’ We need to protect our families.”
Pro-Life/Life Begins At Conception
Nick says, “It is our duty to protect every human life.”
“A Marine’s Word Is His Bond”
Give ‘em hell, Nick .. and you know how!!
I was so impressed with that quote when I first heard it, I immediately put it on my home page, where it remains to this day. Love it!
How is Nick doing? Any numbers?
Some of these people might know of one or maybe the dose list, (We were all big fans of "Nick".)
"CIGAR GUY" needs out help!
