Jerry McNerney is serving his third two-year term in Congress after defeating Republican incumbent Richard Pombo in 2006. What's new this year is that the Democrat has had his district carved in half.
Faced with keeping his Pleasanton home and seeking re-election in the East Bay or running in a separate San Joaquin County district, McNerney decided to center on the Central Valley district, which includes most of the county plus Galt.
