MANTECA -- The San Joaquin County Republican Party has decided not to endorse any of the three GOP June primary candidates running against Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Stockton, the incumbent Democrat representing Stockton and part of East Contra Costa County.

That's because none of three Republican candidates had the two-thirds majority needed from the central committee to get the endorsement, said Susan Vander Schaaf, the county party's vice chairwoman.

"This way, we're promoting all of our Republican candidates, and the voters get to decide," she said.

The three Republicans running in the 9th Congressional District are Steve Anthony Colangelo, Karen Mathews-Davis and Tony Amador.
