NOT BIG FAT PUSSIES: 42nd District Congressman GARY MILLER and the Republican's Democratic challenger, LEWIS MYERS; 44th District Congress Peace and Freedom nominee KEVIN AKIN; 46th District Congress Democrat and Green nominees JIM BRANDT and TOM LASH; 48th District Congress Libertarian and Democrat nominees BRUCE COHEN and JOHN GRAHAM; 49th District Congress Libertarian and Democrat nominees LARS GROSSMITH and MICHAEL BYRON. Also, 33rd District state Senator DICK ACKERMAN and the Republican's Democratic challenger, RANDALL DAUGHERTY; 35th District state Senate Libertarian nominee TIMOTHY JOHNSON; 67th District Assemblyman TOM HARMAN and the Republican's Democratic challenger, DAVID P. SILVA; 68th Assembly District Democrat nominee AL SNOOK; 69th Assembly District Libertarian nominee GEORGE REIS; the 70th Assembly District Democrat and Republican nominees, CARL MARIZ and CHUCK DEVORE; the 73rd Assembly District Democrat and Libertarian nominees, KATHLEEN CALZADA and ANDREW FAVOR.
