Levering has no illusions about his chances against David Dreier, an eight-term incumbent with a multimillion-dollar war chest. But the retired history professor believes that Dreier's reputation as a moderate is overblown, and hopes Dreier's votes to cut social programs like food stamps and school lunches will mark him as a "Team Gingrich" member who should not be playing in Washington.
