Mike Berryhill to Declare for Congress against Cardoza

Tomorrow at 11 AM, Turlock Irrigation District Board Member Mike Berryhill declares his candidacy for U.S. Congress against Dennis Cardoza.  Berryhill, the cousin of current Assemblymembers Bill and Tom Berryhill will be a strong candidate against the newly vulnerable Cardoza. A farmer, Mike Berryhill has served on the TID Board for over 25 years.  With a formidable resume that includes an MBA from Northwestern, President of the California Young Farmers and Ranchers and two terms on the Ceres School Board, Berryhill has the background to highlight Cardoza’s failures on many issues.  This race ups the stakes considerably in the very competitive Central Valley.  (Disclosure: He is a client)

With his move to Maryland and his vulnerability on the healthcare and cap and tax bills, Cardoza will be a new concern for Nancy Pelosi and the DCCC as Kevin McCarthy expands the battlefield to a district where Cardoza ran unopposed last cycle in a district won by President Bush in 2004.
