Governor Jerry Brown, Senator Diane Feinstein, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, Congressman Henry Waxman endorse the re-election of Congressman Howard Berman.

Los Angeles, CA - Congressman Howard L. Berman (D-Valley Village) announced today that five prominent California Democrats will help lead his reelection effort.  Governor Jerry Brown, Senator Diane Feinstein, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, and Congressman Henry Waxman will serve as honorary campaign co-chairs for Berman's re-election campaign.  Congressman Berman has made clear his plans to run for reelection in the newly created 30th Congressional district which includes the communities of Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Encino, Tarzana, Woodland Hills, Winetka, West Hills, Reseda, Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Northridge, and Granada Hills. 

"I am honored to have received the early support of the Democratic leaders of our state of California," said Congressman Berman.  "They are familiar with my work and accomplishments, and understand that in Congress I am not just another voice or another vote, but that I have a unique leadership role that enables me to serve the interests of the United States, California, and the San Fernando Valley."

Would have thought that Sherman would have been the favorite son. What if Sherman doesn't win. What will his momma do with all those combs.

Sherman is visible, but useless. Berman actually gets things done. Check the legislative record. And Sherman's office indicated that he is not interested in helping women financially abused by deadbeat dads. Vote for Berman!

Not being of their party ilk, I wouldn't vote for either nor am I in the district. But and this is a big but for Jewish residents of this congressional district. Berman is a strong supporter of Israel (not saying that Sherman isn't) and sits as the ranking minority member of the Foreign Relations Committee. If he was to lose, you could certainly get one of these new super progressives as the minority leader and my guess that wouldn't portend well for Israel. Just something to think about.
