Health Care Becomes Issue in California Congressional Race
In California's 3rd congressional district race, Ami Bera -- a physician and former chief medical officer for Sacramento County -- is challenging Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.), who has said he would support scaling back the health reform law if the GOP gains the majority in Congress. The conservative group American Crossroads has started running an advertisement against Bera saying that Bera believes the health reform law did not go far enough.
