Is it already time to start talking about the 2010 election? While there's been quite a bit of gubernatorial talk already, congressional districts have been on the down low. California's 36th District is the exception, however, with one Progressive Democrat nearly two months into her campaign and hosting her first fundraiser tomorrow.

Marcy Winograd challenged and lost to Democratic incumbent Jane Harman the last time the primary election came around. But it gave Winograd, who entered the race only three months before voting day and garnered 38% of the vote, some inertia to run again.

Although there have been some questions if Harman is going to run again or take a Presidentially appointed post, a campaign spokesman told LAist today that she will be running. If she were not to, L.A. City Councilmember Janice Hahn expressed interest in the seat.
