John McDonald is arguably the least known among the three candidates on the June primary ballot for the 9th Congressional District seat. He lives in the south end of the district, Mountain House, and hasn't received the financial backing of either Democrat Jerry McNerney or Republican Ricky Gill.
McDonald, also a Republican, is focusing his campaign against Gill, while Gill focuses more on defeating McNerney.
