Matta will run against Wendy Reed, the Democrat candidate from Bakersfield, next March in the California primary and Republican incumbent, Congressman and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. If she prevails, she will face McCarthy in November 2018. Ridgecrest voters will have a lot of questions for Matta. Join the conversation on Monday to ask her what she will do for Ridgecrest and Kern County.
