Update March 24, 2019: Dr. Bera won re-election in November 2018.
He’ll be up again in November 2020. You might want to keep him in mind for your next Core Four.
Update, June 9, 2018: Bera came first in the top-two primary held on June 5, earning almost 52 percent of the vote. We at OTYCD encourage you to support his re-election campaign.
Re-elect Dr. Ami Bera to a fourth term as the Congressional representative for California’s 7th District.
Bera served as the chief medical officer for Sacramento County and as a clinical professor of medicine at UC Davis before running for Congress in 2012 and defeating the Republican incumbent, Dan Lungren.
Bera has continued to win, but Ballotpedia regards his district as a battleground. All three times Bera has run, the numbers have been close. He got 51.7 percent of the vote to Lungren’s 48.3 percent in 2012. In 2014, Bera won with 50.4 percent of the vote to Republican Doug Ose’s 49.6 percent. And in 2016, Bera claimed victory with 51.2 percent of the vote to Republican Scott Jones’s 48.8 percent.
Bera opposes any attempts to weaken Medicare and Social Security. He sits on the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, as well as the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
He voted against a bill that would criminalize abortion after 20 weeks. He also voted no on Kate’s Law, the GOP tax bill, denying federal funds to sanctuary cities, and a bill that would have undercut the Affordable Care Act.
