Berman calls caucus decision not to endorse 'just'

Rep Howard L. Bermancalled the decision of the 30th Congressional District caucus not to endorse a candidate at the California Democrats State Convention "just and appropriate" as he and fellow Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman of Sherman Oaks fight for the newly drawn San Fernando Valley district.

In a statement issued after the caucus this weekend, Berman said the race would rest on each candidate's merits.

“Tonight’s outcome was just and appropriate," Berman said. "This race will now be decided on the merits of our candidacies, and I’m confident that my record of effectiveness will earn the support of the voters of the 30th Congressional District."

The Sherman-Berman race is expected to be one of the biggest, and costliest, political showdowns of the House races this year.
