Sara Jacobs and Paul Kerr are both very wealthy and are self-funding their campaigns, pouring millions of dollars into the primary election for the 49th district. Both of them are polling behind front-runners Doug Applegate and Mike Levin.
Jacobs and Kerr are very unlikely to win, but they can be spoilers in this election.
The torrent of cash from Jacobs and Kerr is weakening the two front-runners and increasing the odds that two Republicans will wind up on the final ballot in November.
Remember that California's Top Two primary system will move the top two vote-getters to the final ballot. If four Democrats split the vote, we're unlikely to wind up with any Democrats in November.
If you agree that it's time for Sara Jacobs and Paul Kerr to do the right thing and step aside, then sign the petition!
Voices of the 49th is committed to making sure that voters in the 49th congressional district have a meaningful choice in November... which means engaging, educating, informing, and influencing voters through the jungle primary in June so that a Democrat makes it on to the final ballot.
