The most anti-conservation member of Congress could lose his seat.

Well I don’t really know if Richard Pombo of Tracy, CA and chair of the House Resources Committee is the very most anti-conservation member of Congress. He is, however, in a very powerful position to push his public land privatization, full speed development of the outdoors, kill off the endangered species act, and land rights-for-the-few agenda.

Recent polls show him vulnerable. Political analysts have a rule of thumb that any incumbent with under 50% several months before election day and facing a relatively unknown challenger is vulnerable. Pombo was at 43% in July.
