Businessman Michael Eggman (D), who has run two relatively strong races against Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Turlock/Modesto), said yesterday that he will not return for a third try. Democrats do not lack for candidates, however. Five have already announced their candidacies, the strongest of whom appears to be former Riverbank City Councilwoman Dotty Nygard and venture capitalist Josh Harder. Rep. Denham is the early slight favorite to win re-election, but the 10th is a marginal district that will become a major Democratic target.
