If the results of a poll that concluded today are any indication, Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones could provide incumbent Congressman Ami Bera yet another strong challenger for next year's race for California's Seventh Congressional District.

The unscientific poll showed showed that 42-percent of respondents favored Jones. Bera received 23-percent of the votes.

Additionally, when combined with 13-percent of respondents who said they favored another unspecified Republican candidates, a total of 55-percent said they favored a GOP candidate. On the Democratic side, 10-percent said they favored someone other than Bera giving the Dems 33-percent. An unspecified third party candidate received seven-percent and two-percent were undecided.

Bera, who narrowly lost to Republican incumbent Dan Lungren in 2010, came back in 2012 and edged out Lungren and former Congressman Doug Ose in 2014. Although Bera has won two consecutive elections, both races were among the closest and most expensive Congressional races in the country.

Although Jones said he will intends to continue as Sheriff, he told Elk Grove News he has not completely ruled out running against Bera. 

"I have been approached by many to run for Congress, and I tell them the same thing I will here tell you; I will never say never," he said.

We need more diversity in the office. It starts from the top, be relatable and show by example. Black lives matter.
