Biography

Cardoza was born March 31, 1959 in Merced, California. He grew up in Atwater, California and graduated from Atwater High School. He was educated at the University of Maryland, College Park. He served as a city council member for the City of Atwater and the City of Merced and was a Member of the California State Assembly before entering the U.S. House.

Cardoza defeated his embattled former boss, Congressman Gary Condit, in the March 2002 Democratic Party primary election.

"Cardoza's centrist philosophy is highlighted in his role as co-chair of the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of 35 moderate to conservative House Democrats committed to fiscal responsibility."[1]

2006 elections

In 2006, the Republicans nominated John Kanno to face Cardoza in his November 2006 bid for reelection. (See U.S. congressional elections in 2006) [2] Cardoza retained his seat.
