  • Charlie Calderon says:

    Bob would be a great state Senator for California

  • Love the 32nd says:

    Finally a candidate with integrity and dignity. Bob would continue representing the District in the same manner of effectiveness that we enjoyed with Tony. I guess things can go right in this upside down world. If we had to lose Tony we at least deserve Bob!
