President Obama was in town recently doing what Democrats from all over the country do in Los Angeles: raise money. Mark Leibovich, chief national correspondent for the New York Times Magazine talked to Warren about how the LA is a Democrat’s ATM.  His recent New York Times article, The Real House Candidates of Beverly Hills, talks about the random nature of the race to succeed retiring Democrat Henry Waxman, who held the 33rd Congressional district for 40 years.
