California Needs Nick Popaditch in Congress!



Text  



One of my favorite congressional candidates from the 2010 cycle, who is running for Congress again this year, is Nick Popaditch — a Purple Heart and Silver Star–winning Marine who lost an eye in the first battle for Fallujah

Popaditch joined Mitt Romney and John McCain for a Memorial Day ceremony this weekend; his speech gives a sense of the relentless determination and spirit of this candidate:

California’s primary is June 5, but Popaditch faces no challenger in the GOP primary. Because of shifting district lines, Popaditch will be taking on incumbent Democratic representative Susan Davis, who was first elected in 2000.
