Amador is a former U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of California who was appointed by President George W. Bush. The Bee reports that Amador’s parents were undocumented Latino immigrants. His most recent office worked to hunt and transport federal fugitives.
Multiple Republicans have already announced their intentions to seek their party’s nomination in the district, including: winery owner Brad Goehring; businessman Jon Del Arroz; and Larry Pegram, president and co-founder of conservative group Values Advocacy Council has filed for the race. Businessman David P. Bernal is also exploring a bid.
