Congressional Aspirant Needs to Brush up on Geography or at Least Consult an Atlas

Republican California Assemblyman, Van Tran, announced his intention to challenge U.S. Representative Loretta Sanchez in the 47th District. The announcement went off without a hitch, except for the little fact that the announcement did not occur in Sanchez's district but rather that of Dana Rohrbacher of the neighboring 46th. An aide to Tran "said Tran and his aides knew the location was outside the district, but went with it anyway because it’s only 'like a block out of Garden Grove' and because it’s a good, central location for the Vietnamese press.

Alrighty then. Apparently this crew doesn't care about little details such as where the district is. Not a good first step for a fledgling campaign against a well-known and well-financed incumbent like Sanchez.

Perhaps Mr. Tran and his team should consult with Miss Teen South Carolina on where to get a map of the 47th District:
