Republicans should follow the winning 50 state strategy of the Democratic Party and put candidates in ALL districts.

If a Democratic party candidate fails due to scandal then we have our chances with our nominee.
If you are interested in running for 2008, start your organization and your agenda now. Try to raise money for the filing fee in case if people from the other wing of the party want to enter the primary also. The problem is the party will only pay for you if you are unopposed in a non competitive seat.
California Republicans may have enough seats in statewide offices in the 2006 election. However we need to be the legislative party too. Even if moderates and even some liberal Republicans win in Santa Monica and Long Beach it is only a small price to pay for controlling California government.
