Today Republican Randy "Duke" Cunningham resigned from Congress after pleading guilty to charges of bribery related to defense contracts. This is only one more example of the culture of corruption that has pervaded this Republican Congress.
There will be plenty of discussion about Cunningham's actions that led him to resign, but I am writing you today because his resignation will lead to a hard-fought special election in his California district in the next couple of months.
Francine Busby, a grassroots favorite candidate who ran a spirited, against-the-odds campaign against Cunningham in 2004, has long since begun her campaign for 2006. She is well positioned to turn this traditionally Republican seat Democratic blue - and she needs all of our support.
The spearhead of the Democratic wave in 2006 will be courageous candidates like Francine Busby, charging into districts where the Republicans have become entrenched and far too comfortable. With this special election, we can get the momentum started early and help build it into a movement by next November.
