Uphill Battle For State Senate Candidate Tom Pratt

Murphys, CA...In a sad local story it looks like Murphys resident and Vallecito School Board Member Tom Pratt who was running as a moderate Democrat will be outflanked to the left in the battle to represent the Democratic Party in November against Republican Andreas Borgeas. The District 8 State Senate Seat is being vacated by Tom Berryhill as he is being term limited out.

It's never sad when a Democrat gets his butt kicked. I don't care where he lives.

    Not true we need to start building common ground again. We all agree on the bulk of the issues. We seem to have forgotten that

A Sad Story? That's not an objective report!

This is a Happy Story for this Conservative Area!

Yes folks, we are still conservative here!

The loud ones are not the majority, nor the correct ones!

Tom Pratt had the backing of Kevin De Leon...if that isn't a Red Flag (as in commie) warning I don't know what is. Kevin De Leon is a menace to sanity in government. Kevin wants your guns, your money, and your state returned to Mexico.

Pratt is a moderate democrat?

Not with the backing of Kevin De Leon.

Nice bit of propaganda, John. You've got a future with Bezo's Fables aka The Washington Post.
