“We need Pete Stark in Washington to continue defending Social Security, Medicare, and creating jobs in technology and manufacturing. President Obama and I endorse him based on his years of service and leadership,” Feinstein said in a news release issued by Stark’s campaign.
Stark, D-Fremont, is also opening a new campaign office in Dublin – the home turf of his challenger, Dublin councilman and Alameda County prosecutor Eric Swalwell, also a Democrat. In fact, Stark’s campaign office will be in the same union hall in which the TriValley Democratic Club – of which Swalwell is a longtime member – meets.
But Stark didn’t exactly cover himself in glory while taking questions at an event today in Union City – before he could be ushered away, he said he won’t debate Swalwell because he’d probably get the same “stupid” questions reporters were asking him there.
