BOOO!!! Lets get a fresh face in there. I'm tired of seeing the same people in office.

She won't get my vote. This country is in a hole and voting for the same people on both sides of the aisle that put us in it won't get us anywhere.

Wow, 68 years old and in office for nearly two decades. It's certainly good to have a leader with a competent level of experience, though I have to wonder what our other options are?

I'm a long-time admirer of Anna Eshoo, and glad she still represents me in Congress. I wish her success in her coming election campaign.

Two decades in office is too long. I'm voting out ALL incumbents.

another dirtbag politician. Can you believe "her priorities would remain keeping jobs in Silicon Valley and supporting technologies that will create the next generation of high-tech jobs."? The question is what exactly she has done. Cisco, HP, Intel,Oracle all have laid of 10000s of people, actually 100s of thousands of jobs have disappeared from Silicon valley alone.
I don't know what kind of *#@! voted for her in the past. It is just disgusting to see people who keep voting for the same crook. I don't support any party and not particularly care for a Republican either, because they are definitely as bad as the democrats if not worse. Feinstein, Boxer,Eshoo are just the lowest forms of human beings and politicians. These are career politicians with no ethics and are using their position to enrich themselves.

I am so sick of career politicians. Is Anna Eshoo my representative for life?
