Durfee elected to DNC

Jess Durfee, chairman of the San Diego County Democratic Party, has been elected to the Democratic National Committee.

He was one of 19 people elected to the DNC by the California Democratic Party's executive board on Sunday.

Democrats are obsessed with gender and ethnic balance, but apparently aren't such sticklers for geographic balance.

Durfee said that so far as he knows, nobody from San Diego had ever been elected to the DNC ? a slight he has complained about for years.

"I started this four years ago," he said of his campaign for the post. "One of the things I did was make it clear that we're the second largest city in the state, the sixth largest county in the nation and the second largest number of Democratic votes by county in the state and not in anyone's memory have we ever had an elected member of the DNC."
