Will McClintock finally face a real challenge?
SEPTEMBER 29, 2017 8:27 AM
Four determined women have stepped up to challenge one of the most conservative members in the House of Representatives, Rep. Tom McClintock.
Last week, the Calaveras County Democrats gave a large crowd of foothill voters an opportunity to meet these women.
…Rochelle Wilcox, also of Roseville, completed law school in 1998 and became a partner of one of the top-rated media defense practices in the nation. She specializes in government transparency and accountability, and protecting First Amendment rights. Wilcox wants to help bring campaign finance reform to federal elections. She also wants to help return government’s focus to the people, not the interests of politicians and their donors.
“We have a Congressman who does not represent our district and does not work for us,” said Wilcox, drawing the loudest applause of the evening.
Since all four candidates have extraordinary backgrounds, it will come down to the one who works the hardest raising money, signing up volunteers, connecting with voters and getting endorsements.
