Rep. Jeff Den­ham (R) wrote a column push­ing back against the Mod­esto Bee’s ed­it­or­i­al that at­tacked him for not dis­avow­ing Don­ald Trump. He wrote, “For the first time in my memory, The Bee has es­tab­lished a strict lit­mus test for their sup­port. This test is not based on my po­s­i­tion on the is­sues or on my re­cord as a rep­res­ent­at­ive for the Val­ley.” Den­ham said that he takes is­sues with both pres­id­en­tial nom­in­ees but noted that only Trump “has at least re­cog­nized the prob­lem and made state­ments about the tiny fish that are used as an ex­cuse to take our wa­ter,” ref­er­en­cing the area’s wa­ter crisis.
