Well it didn’t take long for the race to represent the 31st Congressional District to go negative.

Seven-term Congressman Gary Miller (R-Rancho Cucamonga) took a hefty blow at State Senator Bob Dutton (R-Rancho Cucamonga) this week.

Miller slammed fellow Republican Dutton for voting to approve several unbalanced budgets and falling asleep on the job.

Yes, I really mean falling asleep.

It seems someone snapped a photo of Dutton sleeping in the Senate chamber during a budget session.

Now that photo has landed in voter mailboxes.
