In the competition for Republican endorsements in the race for California’s 7th Congressional district, Dr. Yona Barash received the nod of a seated Republican Congressman.
Barash, who is one of two Republicans challenging Dr. Ami Bera (D – Elk Grove) in the June primary announced today that Congressman Tom McClintock (R -Republican) endorsed his candidacy. McClintock represents the adjacent 4th district.
“Dr. Yona Barash believes in individual liberty and limited government and has a compelling personal story to tell, having lived in a refugee camp in Israel after his family escaped the communist dictatorship in Romania,” McClintock said in the endorsement statement. “He has one of the most unique stories I’ve ever heard from a candidate for Congress, and he is exactly the type of candidate the Republican Party needs in this election.”
