Mr. David's third place finish was respectable for a Westside Republican, but Independent Bill Bloomfield ended up taking the second spot against the presumptive Democratic Nominee Henry Waxman.
The Beverly Hills Congressman reported to a local paper that he had no intent of campaigning in the South Bay, largely because he chose to ride on the stronghold votes on which he has coasted to victory for nearly forty years.
The complacency of this Congressman symbolizes the sharp and growing divide between legislators and their constituents which has expanded government debt and deficits and the expense of the entire country and our future.
Mr. Waxman should pay more attention, focus more analysis on the results, in which more than half of the primary voters chose someone else besides the liberal Democrat.
The turnout for this election was quite low, as even the Daily Kos originally assumed that the district would not be competitive at all.
Following Independent Bill Bloomfield's upset on June 5th, Waxman will face some real competition for the first time in his extensive and expensive congressional career.
