Americans for Tax Reform congratulates CA-07 candidates Elizabeth Emken, Doug Ose, and Igor Birman for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to oppose any and all income tax hikes. All three candidates are vying for the opportunity to challenge Rep. Ami Bera (D-Calif.) in November.

Cook Political Report rates this a “Toss Up” race with a PVI of EVEN while the Rothenberg Political Report rates this race “Lean Democrat.” First-term incumbent Bera defeated Dan Lungren in 2012 (51%-49%) after redistricting altered the district. 

The NRCC rates all three Republican challengers as Contenders in their Young Guns program. Reaching the level of Contender means, “candidates have completed a stringent program of metrics and are on the path to developing a mature and competitive campaign operation.”

Candidates running for office like to say they won’t raise taxes, but often turn their backs on the taxpayer once elected. The Pledge requires them to put their rhetoric in writing and provides an additional layer of accountability to the taxpayer.
