ALYSSIA FINLEY: In California, A Farmers’ Rebellion Lifts The GOP. This would seem a good time for anti-fatcat populism:

Mr. Vidak’s campaign theme was the bifurcation of California: the coastal liberal elites versus the Valley folks. “We’re getting left behind here,” he says. “They don’t view us as important.”

Case in point: The unemployment rate in Mr. Vidak’s district is about 15%—two to three times as high as in the Bay Area—and exceeds 30% in some communities. The culprit? “Our water has been cut off by the far left,” he says.

Call it the Hunger Games strategy. It just might work.
