From Ricky Gill for Congress:

We all know that Jerry McNerney lied to voters about his residence.

Apparently unsatisfied, McNerney is now lying about Ricky’s.

In a fact-check article published today, the Stockton Record thoroughly examines the claims McNerney makes in his campaign advertising. McNerney is running TV ads — and the Democratic Party is sending mailers on his behalf — making absurd claims, including the unfounded allegation that Ricky still lives with his parents. (more…)

(ORANGE COUNTY, CA) – Elizabeth Emken, Republican challenger for U.S. Senate in California, today released the following statement regarding this morning’s employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
