Gold Hill, CA — After capturing another term in the House of Representatives with a decisive victory over Dr. Bill Durston, Third District Congressman Dan Lungren spoke out on the Tuesday presidential race.
Lungren stated that “Six weeks ago before the economy took a nosedive McCain had a one point lead over Obama. There´s no doubt in my mind the economy was the biggest issue in the race”
He added that Barack Obama´s “enormous disparity in campaign financing” gave the Illinois senator a tremendous advantage. Toward the end of the campaign Obama was able to get his message across that John McCain was just a continuation of George Bush.
As far as the mainstream media was concerned, Lungren commented that many reporters picked out all the warts on the Republican side of the fence but never really investigated Obama and his running mate Joe Biden.
