POST UPDATE: I JUST SPOKE WITH CHRIS NORBY AND HE’S DEFINITELY NOT RUNNING FOR CONGRESS. FURTHERMORE, HE WOULD ENDORSE SHAWN NELSON OVER GARY MILLER.
Tomorrow the new redistricting lines for Congress will be released by the Citizens Redistricting Commission. If the lines hold and my hunch about Ed Royce moving next door into the 48th District is correct, then those of us in the 40th Congressional District could soon have an opening for a new U.S. Congressman.
I spoke with both State Assemblymen Chris Norby and Supervisor Shawn Nelson about all the “ifs” today and they are both considering that job.
If that happens, then we would have a whole new set of “ifs.” For example, who would run for Supervisor or State Assembly? If Bruce Whitaker ran for State Assembly and won then who would run for Council? And if…well, you see where this thing is going.
