Elizabeth Emken eyes House seat in new run for Congress
SACRAMENTO — Republican Elizabeth Emken, who fell short in her bid to unseat Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein last year, still wants to serve in Congress.
On Wednesday she announced plans to run against U.S. Rep Ami Bera (D-Elk Grove), who she denounced as an “Obama foot soldier.”
“I’ve got the conservative ideas for putting our country back on track,” Emken said in a statement. “You better believe Ami Bera and the Democrat establishment are scared to face me in this race.”
Bera, a freshman lawmaker, is up for reelection next year. He helped Democrats pick up four congressional seats in California in November, and he’s considered vulnerable in the next midterm contests.
