SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Honda and former Obama administration official Ro Khanna are slated for a rematch of their 2014 contest for a San Francisco Bay-area congressional seat.
Honda and Khanna, both Democrats, topped a field of six candidates in Tuesday’s primary.
Since narrowly defeating Khanna two years ago, Honda is the subject of a congressional ethics investigation into whether he and his staff used official resources for campaign purposes. He blames clerical errors.
Khanna is a lawyer and economist who lives in Fremont. He was a deputy assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce in President Barack Obama’s administration,
The San Francisco Bay Area district includes Santa Clara County and a slice of Alameda County.
