The Republican is the heavy favorite in the fall against Sangisetty in a district that gave Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) 61% in ’08. Sangisetty has gone on record saying he won’t vote for Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for Speaker, should he win the seat and should Democrats hold the House. But even that statement — one that is sure to be well received here — will not likely be enough to overcome the heavily Republican lean of the seat. The fact that Landry won the runoff in convincing fashion should put to bed any thoughts that the primary was divisive.
Just before the primary, Sangisetty reported nearly $250K in the bank, and he likely used the last month to build up his warchest. Landry had $200K in the bank in mid-September.
But with the DCCC seemingly uninterested in the seat — they have not reserved airtime here for the stretch run — Landry is the huge favorite.
