Raul Ruiz, a Democrat, has represented California’s 36th Congressional district for the past seven years, having earned the seat by defeating Sonny Bono’s widow, Mary Bono Mack, in 2012. He also happens to have three graduate degrees from Harvard.

The point of this post is that Raul Ruiz is running for re-election. His Republican challenger?
