Former Gunny Nick Popaditch Is Running for Congress

Gunny Popaditch, retired, is famously remembered as the "Cigar Marine" filmed as the statue of Saddam was pulled down in Baghdad. I'm sure you have seen him on the National Geographic series on Iraq. In 2004, he was wounded a by an RPG that nicked his helmet during the battle of Fallujah. Popaditch now wants to represent California’s 51st Congressional District. He’s challenging Incumbent Democrat Bob Filner, to represent the California district that runs along the Mexico border. Filner has been in office since 2003.

    Filner has never had a real opponent, and he sure has one now! I suggest if you want to know about this Marine, read his book Once a Marine. There is video and stuff on his site at www.onceamarine.com. Then donate a few bucks this Gunny's campaign, regardless of where you live. This is one "safe" seat the demorats have not idea yet they are going to lose. Semper Fi, Gunny!
