Rep. Gary Miller Wins

Rep. Gary Miller has defeated three challengers to win reelection. With all precincts reporting Miller received 49%. Phil Liberatore was his closest challenger with 37.2%.


  1. Hope has failed us again! I hoped that we, as "smarter-than-liberals" conservatives, would wake up and unite, but we apparently aren't any smarter.

    To those Lee and Su supports who commented here - see, my analysis was dead on. All your candidate was was a spoiler. And you, with your whining about money, "it's sad really", OH GROW UP. Pull your head out, and wake up to the realities of this world; otherwise, you give it up to the enemy - like you just did.

    Message for the Miller campaign, I for one WILL NOT VOTE for you. You have proven your stripes to me already - there is nothing you can do to change that. I'd rather see this CD go to a democrat than soil my conscience. I learned my lesson with Arnold, and I will no longer give my vote to the lesser of two evils - I will never vote for any evil again.

  2. Last evening, my campaign held a celebration party at our home. Lisa and I were so pleased with the turnout. It was a chance for us to say thank you for a truly wonderful year. We couldn't have been more touched by the outpouring of love and support for the efforts of my team, my family and most importantly, my supporters.

    Did we win? Absolutely. I can truly hold my head up high knowing we fought a great fight. I believed Congressman Miller needed to be challenged and our goal was to offer a choice to the people of the district. My entering the race assured that. Though I wish I could have gone head-to-head against Miller, others also stood up and challenged. That is Democracy!

    As a gesture of goodwill, I will be calling each of my opponents today. For now, I tip my hat to Congressman Miller for his victory. I also applaud Phil and David for their efforts. We all won. But more importantly, the People won. This is what elections are about. In the end, it was not about us -- the candidates. In the end, it was about the People electing leaders.

    To Congressman Miller, I wish you the very best. The People need you to be a leader for them, not yourself. If you see potential conflicts, run the other way. Make a real difference in people's lives. Otherwise, you know full well I will be watching.

    For Phil and David, whatever you decide to do in the future, please know that I respect your decision for running and wish you the very best.

    As for me??? I'm taking a few weeks off to think about whether politics is in my future. For now, I will get some needed sleep.

    To Lucky Day, you've been a royal pain in the A$$. Yet, you were also the one place my team could go for information. I'm happy to say that I stayed far away from your site for several months (the daggers hit hard a few times!)

    Though I felt you were a Miller site (still do), I commend your willingness to post our ideas and counter arguments. For that, you served a worthy purpose.

    For those who have followed this race closely, I really appreciated your comments and activity. Democracy takes work and we need good people to stand up and make a difference. Thank you.

    Best wishes to all. I appreciated the opportunity to serve!

    Lee McGroarty

  3. Not so far away, David Dreier had a tough night. Sure he won the primary, but more people in his district voted for "Not Dreier."
