I'm talking about California State Rep. Van Tran, who is [potentially / hopefully / probably] running for California's 47th Congressional seat, taking on Blue Dog Rep. Loretta Sanchez. The race isn't until 2010, but it can't hurt to get excited about it now -- the district has a distinct possibility of going back into the hands of Republicans, and Tran may be the one to do it. He's got a record of cutting spending, being tough on crime, and was selected by the Orange Register in 2001 as a "person to watch." Originally from South Korea, Tran is the original American Dream; he can use that to his advantage in a district that is 17.8% white, 13.9% Asian, and 65.3% Hispanic.
