Yes, according to my exploratory committee, if Jerry Brown puts the 36th Congressional District seat on the ballot, the primary can be as soon as April.
So what have I been doing? Well, researching the possible contenders, whom all seem to be women on the Democratic side, and I haven't seen many Republicans step forward and claim to want the seat, let alone want to run for it. I have also been looking at my potential supporters... I have ties to unions in addition to the other industries in the district.
What I really need to be doing is to gather finances. To reach a district of more that 600,000 people I need to be able to get known, fast. I don't have a record of public office so people know who I am, nor do I come from a lineage of previous mayors, district attorneys, or county supervisors.
