Congressional District 10 Remains Too Close to Call

Republican Jeff Denham is Hangin by a Thread to Win Re-election

By Sean Brown

Republican Incumbent Jeff Denham is hanging by about 1,000 votes as California’s 10th Congressional representative tries to hold off Democratic challenger Josh Harder.

The line, which stands at 50.6 percent to 49.4 percent, favors Denham, however, with hundreds of absentee and mail in ballots yet to be counted, the incumbent should be nervous.

Nationally, Democrats have already accomplished their mission of taking back the House, but Harder is looking to turn a historically red district blue. A midterm theme that California Democrats are enjoying throughout the state.

Harder, the young 32 year old first time candidate, has seen a slight lead in the polls since June’s primary. While only slightly cast in front of Denham, he is pushing the 4 term incumbent to one of his hardest earned re-elections in his career.

Fighting over a largely Hispanic district, the Democrat has challenged Denham on his immigration policy and attacked him for going along with the GOP’s plan to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Denham has fired back nicknaming Harder “Bay Area Harder” and dubbing him a political pawn of Nancy Pelosi and the more liberal leaning democrats.

According to the Modesto Bee, “only 70,179 had been tallied late Tuesday compared to 125,705 four years ago, suggesting the election workers have tens of thousands of votes yet to count.”

This race currently holds the tightest margins of any other race in the state. California Globe will track any updates.
