From our Fix profile of the California House candidate, who spoke at the Republican National Convention as part of a fast-moving lineup of candidates in competitive congressional races:

He declined to endorse the House GOP’s 2012 budget proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), which would turn Medicare into a voucher program by 2021, supports a balanced budget amendment and would have “reluctantly” voted for the debt-ceiling deal. On the health-care law, he talks about improving coordination and record-keeping, not repeal.

He faces three-term Rep. Jerry McNerney (D) in a closely-watched race.
