Can­did­ates have found a polit­ic­al op­por­tun­ity in the Port­er Ranch gas leak “that has sickened and dis­placed thou­sands in the area.” That in­cludes Bry­an Ca­forio (D), who ad­dressed res­id­ents at a church earli­er this month: “What I’ll say is that if you’re in Con­gress­man Knight’s dis­trict and you’re not able to reach out to him and he’s not tak­ing the steps you be­lieve he should in or­der to get things done, go ahead and reach out to me.” Rep. Steve Knight (R) didn’t ap­pear in Port­er Ranch in pub­lic un­til three days later. (Los Angeles Times)

Cor­rec­tion: This post’s head­line and sub­head­line ori­gin­ally mis­spelled Ca­forio’s name.
