I'm not sure I believe it either but he did just that on Sunday at the annual American Spirit Awards from the Caucus for Producers, Writers and Directors.
This is perplexing. There is a Republican in the race. There are, in fact, three. While it's unlikely any will win in November, I can't think of a time when a Republican endorsed a Democrat, especially when sticking it to a fellow Republican.
Does this help or hurt Berman? I don't know how many Republicans will be swayed by this endorsement. You don't score points endorsing a Democrat. Democrats dislike Issa. I'd guess that Berman will lose a few votes if they hear Issa saying he's a guy the Republicans can work with.
Will Howard Berman use this endorsement to go hard after Republican votes? Will Brad Sherman use it against him?
