I've written a couple of times about California state Sen. Carole Migden on this blog -- about her big-money fight with the state's Fair Political Practices Commission and about how Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez seemed to be trying to help her main primary opponent, Rep. Mark Leno, by goosing along his bills while stalling hers.
But I wasn't following the race closely enough to have a good sense of whether she was in real trouble. She's not only the incumbent, but has served in one fairly high profile elected office in the Bay Area continually since 1990.
Well, as you've guess by now, she lost. In fact, she came in third, behind Leno and former Rep. Joe Nation. She's always rubbed some people the wrong way, but I was surprised to see that she took just 28 percent of the vote. That's a pretty big repudiation.
