[i]The 49-year-old former NASA astronaut, a Democrat, filed papers this week forming a campaign committee. After weeks of hinting he would run for public office, the Hernandez for Congress Committee is official.
The new 10th Congressional District includes Manteca and Tracy.
"I have gone to pursue a dream of reaching for the stars, which I did," Hernandez said. "And now I want to pursue other dreams."
Hernandez, who grew up in Stockton, said he has resigned from MEI Technologies, a Houston-based engineering firm, to "explore" his bid for the U.S. House of Representatives.
Hernandez said he has been encouraged by Democratic leaders, but he is waiting until Tuesday (Oct. 11) to make a formal announcement.[/i]
