"Rocky Deal has un- matched leadership experi- ence and ability," McClin- tock said. "I am honored that a man who has done so much for his country and his community is now con- tinuing his service for the people of California's 4th Congressional District." "Tom McClintock has es- tablished himself as a leader among conserva- tives in the House of Repre- sentatives," Deal said.
