California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer say they will support Dennis Cardoza in his bid to replace Congressman Gary Condit.
Cardoza, a state Assemblyman, continues to tout his growing list of endorsements, but is steering clear of confrontations with Condit, his one-time mentor.
Cardoza missed the only candidates forum of the campaign, which drew ten other hopefuls for the 18th Congressional District, including Condit. Now, Cardoza´s bowing out of a forum with Condit and Democratic businessman Ralph White.
Spokesman Doug White says Cardoza is trying not to attend events where Chandra Levy´s name is bound to be mentioned.
