Democrats Target Final GOP-Held Bay Area District

TRACY, Calif. (KCBS) -- Slightly more than a week before the midterm elections, Bay Area Democrats are trying to win the one local Congressional seat still held by a Republican.

Because her own seat is safe, Oakland Congresswoman Barbara Lee is sending money and volunteers to the neighboring 11th District, to try to defeat incumbent Republican Richard Pombo of Tracy. Jerry McNerney is the Demoratic challenger.

Lee told KCBS reporter Doug Sovern that she feels a wave of Democratic momentum, which she expects will help her party capture control of the House for the first time since 1994.

"Of course, I'm very optimistic. We need fifteen seats, it looks like there could be, I'd say, from twenty to twenty-five," she said. "We're working very hard in this area to make sure that we elect Jerry McNerney next door. Pombo has been the most anti-environmental congressman that the House has ever seen. And so we're working very hard."
