Right now we, the moderates and liberals and desperately-want-a-sane-person-representing-us of Orange County, have a golden opportunity to defeat Dana Rohrabacher in 2018 and we, the moderates and liberals of America, have a golden opportunity to grab back the House in 2018. But there needs to be a concerted effort to take full advantage; to utilize volunteers and resources; to take that buzz and energy and harness it before it inevitably fades beneath the haze of work and kids and family vacations.

In other words, we need to reply.
