Physician and retired Navy surgeon Kermit Jones (D) announced his candidacy against Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Elk Grove) in the district that stretches from Sacramento all the way to Yosemite. Rep. McClintock has faced serious challenges in the last two elections, but won with an average of 55% after facing a combined $6.7 million in the last two campaigns. Assuming redistricting doesn’t change this seat in a major way, Rep. McClintock will again be favored for re-election.
