Doris Matsui to run for Congress

Doris Matsui is running to replace her late husband, Congressman Bob Matsui. I had the chance to meet Congressman Matsui a couple of times while volunteering with the DCCC. It's hard to believe he's gone.

Doris Matsui seems like an eminently qualified candidate. She will have a special voice, particularly on stem cell issues:

Matsui said stem cell research offers hope for the disease that caused her husband's death Jan. 1 pneumonia brought on by myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare form of bone marrow disease.

"Now I have joined the ranks of the hundreds of thousands of Americans nationwide for whom this is personal," she said, criticizing Bush's limited federal funding of stem cell experiments.
More on her candidacy at the Sacramento Bee, the Hill. The primary is March 8, and a general election will take place May 3 if no candidate wins 50% in the primary.
