On February 10, Bill Bloomfield announced that he will not be an independent candidate for U.S. House, in California’s 33rd district. This is the district in which veteran Congressman Henry Waxman is not running for re-election. In 2012, Bloomfield was the only independent candidate for any partisan office in California who managed to get on the general election ballot even though there was at least one Republican and one Democrat in the race. In the election, though, Bloomfield lost to Waxman, despite outspending him. See this story about Bloomfield’s announcement.
