Busby's Odds Improve

Kansas City Star | 01/01/2006 | The buzz: "Upscaling the walls?

Could the downfall of former Republican congressman Duke Cunningham in a bribery scandal mean a Democratic pickup of his upscale San Diego district?

Francine Busby faces an uphill battle, thanks to California’s congressional map, drawn to protect incumbents of both parties. But the district was narrowly won by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, another Democrat.

“If Mars is aligned with the moon just right, yes, a Democrat, on paper, could win this seat,” said Allan Hoffenblum, who puts out a nonpartisan election guide. “Everything would have to go right for Busby, and everything … wrong for the Republican.”"
