I know Mary Bono Mack is a rep from California, and Connie Mack is a rep from Florida, but I didn't realize until now that they are married?!
It doesn't really surprise me that a married couple is in the house, but California and Florida are just so far apart! Do they both live together in DC but have homes and are registered to vote in their separate states?
 It just seems very interesting/bizarre too me. Anyone have any insight? And did their opponents every try to make this an issue during their campaigns?

When you're rich, it's possible to have homes all over the country. Must be nice.

They both represent districts where no one is "from," anyway. Mack must be practically a Washington native because of his father's service.

Both are safe in their seats due to their names also.

Both also got married after their respective elections to Congress, of course.
After all, Mary Bono succeeded her first husband. I still think his first wife would have made a worthier successor.

It could've been her stepping stone to the presidency. If only...

Cher was his second wife. So yes.
And Mary Bono his fourth... and Connie Mack is her third husband. But Sonny was her first.

Oh well. That's entertainment.

We should get Chaz to run against either Mary in CA or Connie in FL.

LOL! Right.

Aren't the drafts for the California map seeing her seat significantly altered and more Dem? Haven't followed that as close as other states.

It's a cleaner district yeah, but she won't go down baring an extraordinary reason. She's a pretty good ideological fit for the Palm Springs area (Fiscally conservative, Socially moderate, Pro-LGBT, and Environmentally friendly in comparison to most of her GOP colleagues).

Agree. Most likely she will have more difficult election, then usual, in 2012, but will still prevail...

It stayed close the same as it is now, but it got more Hispanic, to the tune of 47%. And it only has a two point GOP registration edge.

Overall, gop performancein the district may have iimproved marginally...however there is a large latino population plus gays plus some coachella valley liberals, so the district remains competitive.  Super conservative Murrieta was removed, as was the large moderately dem city Moreno Valley...

Some things to consider:

1. Dems have a solid well-connected candidate in dr. Raul ruiz.   Assemblyman manuel perez may also join the race, but I hope he stays out. 

2. Obama will win the new district. If its a national blowout there may be coattails...even if its close, there may belocalized ca coattails a la 2000 in ca...

3. Bono mack may be primaried and is at the very least vulnerable to a 3rd party spoiler. Her moderate profile makes her a good target for teapartiers...meanwhile with the gaying and latinoizing of her district, not sure any R can survive there long.

I think its for sure going to be no more than a 10 point race and def a possible upseet.

It's not going to be a blowout win for him. If anything Obama will do much more badly in California then he did in '08.
