Close Race in CA-50

Invisible Republican lobbyist and carpetbagger Brian Bilbray vs. energetic Democrat Francine Busby. An unscientific survey of the mood of the 50th district suggests the race for convicted Republican felon Randy "Duke" Cunningham's seat is indeed very close.
...informal conversations with 60 voters in four locations throughout the district last week revealed that the race appears close in most areas. Many of those interviewed in the district, which extends from Clairemont northward along the coast to Carlsbad and northwest to Escondido, cited immigration, a desire to change the balance of power in Congress and dislike for one or both of the candidates as deciding factors in their vote.
