Hot on the heels of the Citizens Redistricting Commission finishing California's new congressional maps, Rep. Doris Matsui, D-Sacramento, announced she will be running for reelection. No surprises, here.
In a campaign e-mail sent to supporters, Matsui noted that she has already represented "the vast majority" of the newly redrawn district in the House for the past six years. The new district includes West Sacramento, which Matsui said has "many things in common" with metropolitan Sacramento. This is an ultra-safe Democratic district; as of June 30, Matsui reported having $208,255 in campaign cash.
