Congressman Ami Bera has represented California’s 7th Congressional District since 2012. Prior to his election to Congress, Bera worked as a physician and educator. Bera’s 2012 victory against a Tea Party favorite was decided by just over 5,000 votes, making it one of the closest races of the cycle, and his victories in 2014 and 2016 were similarly close – though he won re-election in 2018 with a 10-point margin. In Congress, Bera is a strong voice for pro-Israel, pro-peace values, and a diplomacy-first approach to foreign policy. Rep. Bera serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and House Committee on Science and Technology.
