This is a month old by now, but I just came across a good interview of '06 Democratic challenger, Dave Mejias. No mention of plans for a rematch unfortunately, but some solid progressive wisdom from Mejias. Why did he enter politics? To paraphrase, "because not everyone can afford to attend a high-priced fund raiser, and those people should be heard too".
Are you getting this, Peter King?
It's strong progressive vision like this that makes me hope we'll see more of Dave Mejias in the future. Check out the video:
