Condit has not said whether he will seek reelection. But a chairman for Art Torres, chairman of the California Democratic Party, was less than enthusiastic about the prospect of Condit running for re-election in 2002. He said he had “great concerns” about Condit and offered not one word of support for the embattled lawmaker.
“As chairman, I don’t think it’s my place to tell an incumbent member of Congress what to do. He’s smart enough. He knows what the figures are, he knows what the polls are looking like, he knows his district. He’s got to come to his own conclusions,” Torres said.
