Democrat and political newcomer Andrew Janz hopes to challenge Republican Devin Nunes in the 22nd Congressional District

The 2018 mid-term election is a year-and-a-half away, but Republican Congressman Devin Nunes has already drawn a challenger in the race for the 22nd Congressional District, Democrat Andrew Janz. The political newcomer and current Fresno County Deputy District Attorney faces a tough challenge. Republicans have a double-digit voter registration edge in the district, and Nunes has easily defeated Democratic opponents in each of the last three election cycles. But now that the Tulare Republican is in the national spotlight due to his role in the House investigation into Russian hacking of the Clinton campaign, does Janz have a chance? He joined us to talk about his background and views on a variety of issues from health care to water.
