Democratic Rep. Ami Bera failed to receive enough support from activists to secure the Democratic endorsement for his re-election. The vote was 61 percent in favor of backing him to 39 percent opposed. Bera needed 70 percent of the vote to avoid further deliberation. The setback means the two-term congressman from Elk Grove will have to wait until the Feb. 28 state party convention to again seek the nomination.
