The only Latina on the NRCC’s Target List: Rep. Loretta Sanchez

August 4th, 2009 · 9 Comments

The National Republican Congressional Committee released a list last week of the 70 seats it intends to target for next year’s midterm elections, and Rep. Loretta Sanchez is the only Latina on the list. This doesn’t surprise me since Rep. Sanchez “has sponsored 62 bills since Jan 7, 1997 of which 58 haven’t made it […]

Rep. Linda Sanchez introduces baby on House Floor

June 29th, 2009 · 12 Comments

Out of the two Sanchez sisters in Congress, I tend to think that Rep. Linda Sanchez seems to be a little stronger on policy issues than her sister, Loretta. She took time out to introduce her new baby on the house floor a few weeks ago. Note how she thanks the doctors who cared for […]

Mid-week updates

May 20th, 2009 · 24 Comments

As I predicted on Gustavo Arellano’s Four O’Clock Tuesdayhour on KPFK yesterday, Gil Cedillo effectively shot himself in the foot with his campaign spending and negative mailers, costing him the election to Judy Chu. Chu will face a runoff for the Congressional seat once held by now Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. So much for Congressman […]

Ex-aide to Rep. Loretta Sanchez expected to plead guilty to theft

April 29th, 2009 · 11 Comments

Last May, we blogged about an investigation with one of Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez’s former staffers, Caroline Valdez, who allegedly misappropriated thousands of dollars. According to the Washington D.C. Examiner, that ex-aide “is expected to plead guilty to stealing as much as $10,000 from a House of Representatives discretionary fund, court documents indicate.” Caroline Valdez had […]

Congrats to Rep. Linda Sanchez on her marriage!

April 28th, 2009 · 11 Comments

Back in the fall, we blogged about Rep. Linda Sanchez possibly becoming the first female Congressional representative to have a baby out of wedlock. Well, it looks like she has joined the ranks of her married Congressional mama colleagues, confirming that she and her long term boyfriend, Jim “Sully” Sullivan, a 43 year old consultant, have in […]

Seneca: Latinos and the Current Ship of State

March 2nd, 2009 · 14 Comments

President Obama has entered office and confirmed that the nation faces its greatest economic challenge since the 1930’s Great Depression. The menacing economic syndrome of deflation is rearing its ugly head. Prices are collapsing in many markets not just in housing. The current crisis is increasingly characterized as becoming a wide-spread debacle: the consumer confidence […]

Rep. Linda Sanchez’s pregnancy kicks up some dust!

February 4th, 2009 · 9 Comments

Back when we blogged about Congresswoman Linda Sanchez’s announcement of her out of wedlock pregnancy, I was thinking that from the political angle, it probably wasn’t the best move. Sure enough, her communications director has been putting out small fires related to her pregnancy status as some have unwisely compared Ms. Sanchez’s situation to that of […]
