I believe I am the first with the full Tenenbaum Bio. I don't know who sent it to me, but I confirmed that this is the real deal. Are you wondering who is running against Gallegly?

MICHAEL TENENBAUM -- CANDIDATE PROFILE
Michael has deep roots in the 24th Congressional District, which includes most of
Ventura County and the northern part of Santa Barbara County, California. Michael's
education, his strong commitment to public service, his impressive professional
experience, and his solid Republican credentials make him an ideal candidate to represent
the community's interests in Washington.
FAMILY ROOTS IN VENTURA COUNTY
Michael's family settled in Thousand Oaks in 1976 and continues to live in the community
to this day. Michael's father was a survivor of the Holocaust who was liberated from the
Dachau concentration camp by the 42nd Rainbow Division of the U.S. Army.
After his father died when Michael was just eight years old, Michael's mother worked to
raise Michael and his two brothers. Throughout his youth, Michael also worked at
countless jobs to help his single mom support the family, from mowing lawns to
managing a movie theater. Michael's mom continues to live in the family home Michael
renovated for her after paying off the mortgage.
Michael's younger brother is a doctor living in Newbury Park with his wife and Michael's
two nephews. His youngest brother serves his country as a captain in the U.S. Air Force,
navigating a reconnaissance aircraft to gather intelligence on our enemies around the world.
