Crowdpac, a new site launching in several cities across the country, has generated some attention for its sometimes strange rankings of the most liberal and conservative local politicians. But what’s most interesting about the site is how it plans to make money. It is trying to do to local politics what Kickstarter did to startups.

On this week’s San Diego Explained, Scott Lewis and NBC 7’s Catherine Garcia explain how one group of voters can swing the 52nd Congressional District race for Rep. Scott Peters or Carl DeMaio.

The big issues to emerge from Cate’s win are that control of the Council is now in play in 2016,Council Republicans can now force an issue onto the docket and what type of councilman Cate will become beyond his voting record.
