McClintock Ponders a Run for Congress

The Sacramento Bee reports that Tom McClintock, the conservative alternative to Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 2003 recall election, is looking at the seat being vacated by Rep. John Doolittle (R).

Roll Call, however, relying on a “California insider,” reports that he may instead challenge Rep. Elton Gallegly (R) in a primary.

McClintock would beat Gallegly in such a primary, this California-based GOP insider said, citing knowledge of a poll of 24th district GOP voters that McClintock’s team conducted to assess his chances against the Congressman…Geographically, Gallegly’s 24th district would be the more logical place for McClintock to run, considering it is in the same region as McClintock’s legislative district.
