Conservatives Warn Ex-Congressman of ‘Bloody Primary’

July 10, 2013

Conservative activists are urging former GOP Rep. Doug Ose to stay out of California’s 7th District race, threatening a “bloody primary” if he runs, according to a letter obtained by CQ Roll Call.

“While we respect your commitment to public service, your record in Congress would leave us no choice but to actively oppose your candidacy should you decide to run,” reads the letter signed by more than a dozen conservative and tea party activists from Northern California. (Read the letter below.)

Ose, who served in Congress from 1999 until 2005, is eyeing a comeback bid against freshman Rep. Ami Bera, D-Calif. The 7th District is a top target for Republicans, who lost the seat last cycle after Bera defeated then-Rep. Dan Lungren in one of the closest contests of 2012.

Local conservatives are not happy with prospect of Ose running again and would like to find another candidate.
