CA-30: Rep Brad Sherman Will Face Off Against Rep Howard Berman and NOT Move to Thousand Oaks

Share

Guess Rep. Brad Sherman does not want to move out to Ventura County and will stay put in the Valley.

The congressman isn’t trading Sherman Oaks for Thousand Oaks, according to Sherman’s campaign consultant, Parke Skelton.

“No, Brad Sherman is not running in the 26th,” Skelton said in an email Friday.

So it’s on to Tuesday night, when Sherman and Berman are scheduled to square off in their second debate of the campaign, a forum sponsored by the Jewish Journal.

Republican California State Senator Tony Strickland has to be considered the front-runner in the CA-26 race (Ventura County) and will face NO incumbent Congressional incumbent.

Looks like this seat will remain Republican.

    Looking forward to the debate tonight.  One of the most respected and effective members of the House, Congressman Howard Berman, against the other guys.  How do you combat a record as strong as Howard Berman?  How do you combat the endorsements of Senator Diane Feinstein, Senator Barbara Boxer and the 23 out of 25 members of Congress who work with both candidates every day and all have come out take sides saying emphatically: If we are forced to choose between the two (which we are if Brad Sherman chooses to stay in CD30 when he can easily win in CD26), we must go with the strongest leader: Howard Berman.  

    Looking forward to the debate.

    This is just silly and bothers me.  CD26 should easily be won by a democrat…and instead Republican California State Senator Tony Strickland will face NO congressional incumbent…  Why?  Doesn’t it make more sense for Brad Sherman to simply take that district?  He’d win it handily and then he could move on to more important things…like how to help return the dems to the majority of the house and how to ensure our sitting president has a second term to continue the progress we’ve made thusfar.

    This debate was awesome. Howard was definitely the best candidate.  It was Howard vs. vs…  If Brad thought he could win CD30 because he started out the gate earlier…hmmm…how did that work out for Romney in 2008…and….??

     I don’t know that it would be an easy win for Rep. Brad Sherman but Democratic prospects would be better with him and his campaign war chest than Julia Brownley who is virtually unknown in Ventura County.
