Template:Infobox politician Andrew Janz is a prosecutor and the Democratic candidate running for California's 22nd congressional district representative in the U.S. House of Representatives in the 2018 election. Janz is running against Republican incumbent Devin Nunes.[1][2][3]

Early life

Janz was raised in Visalia, California. After graduating from Redwood High School, he attended California State University, Stanislaus where he earned a bachelor's degree in economics in 2006. Three years later, he earned a master’s degree in public administration from the same university. In 2012, he graduated from Southwestern Law School with a law degree.[4]


Janz clerked for a judge in Clark County, Nevada district court after completing law school. In 2014, he was hired by the Fresno County District Attorney's Office, where he serves as a Deputy District Attorney in the Violent Crimes Unit.[4]

2018 Congressional campaign

Janz announced his campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives for California's 22nd congressional district in April 2017.[4] If he wins the Democratic primary in June, he will be running against incumbent Devin Nunes.[3] He is viewed as a long shot for the office in the heavily Republican district.[2] In April 2018, a national political forecasting organization run by the University of Virginia downgraded the race as no longer a "safe seat" for Devin Nunes citing the Janz campaign raising over $1.4 million and the competitive campaign being waged against Nunes.[5]

Following the release of the Nunes memo in February 2018, Janz' campaign received $130,379 in contributions.[3][6]
