Banished to ‘farmville,’ McNerney plows victory for Democrats

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Talk about being a survivor. After his district was redrawn out from under him, the one-time Pleasanton Democrat moved to Stockton (we’re assuming not for the climate) where critics branded him a carpetbagger and pundits said he was likely finished in his new farmbelt environs. Last night, he proved them wrong, turning back GOP golden boy Ricky Gill, 25, of Lodi.

For Gill, it’s back to the real world. He just graduated from law school but hasn’t taken the bar exam so can’t practice. McNerney pounded him for not having held a full time job other than being a partner in his parents’ farm and helping run their RV park. Mercury News
