As part of our election 2018 coverage, we talk with the candidates for the 4th congressional district, which is centered in California’s Gold Country. Republican incumbent Rep. Tom McClintock has a reputation as an anti-tax and limited government conservative. The American Conservative Union rates McClintock as the state’s most conservative congressman. First-time candidate Jessica Morse— a Northern California native—has worked for USAID in Iraq and later at the State Department. She prioritizes issues such as fire prevention policy and protection of public lands.
