Democrat Audrey Denney launches second bid for Congress

“As she pledged to supporters after her defeat last fall, political upstart Audrey Denney announced Monday that she has launched her campaign for Congress in 2020,” as the Record Searchlight in Redding is reporting.

“Denney said she’s starting early the second time around, striving to build a bigger political war chest to underpin her campaign and boost her presence in areas where she lacked sufficient ‘contacts,’ including Redding.

“‘We built a really strong base in 2018,’ Denney said Monday. ‘In a little over 10 months, we made a lot of progress, but we still have a ways to go.’

“Denney said that in her first political bid, she didn’t have enough time to reach as many voters as she needed to pull off an upset win over the Republican incumbent, California District 1 Congressman Doug LaMalfa.

“‘That’s really what I think it’s going to take to get me to win — for me to meet with and hear from as many different voters around the district,’ said Denney.

“LaMalfa defeated Denney in the midterm election by winning 56.1 percent of the district-wide vote, compared to Denney’s 43.9 percent. He is planning to run in 2020 as well, according to his office.
