McClintock Survives DCCC and Young Challenger

Jessica Morse Mounted an Impresive, but Short-fall Campaign

By Sean Brown, November 6, 2018 11:23 pm

Surviving one of his toughest races in years, Congressman Tom McClintock has defeated Democratic challenger Jessica Morse as he sails into his sixth term.

Sitting in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2008, McClintock has been heavily targeted by the DCCC and this is the first time he has ever been out funded in a congressional campaign. Democrats will surely be disappointed as their hopes to flip this seat have failed, however, there may be a blue wave growing in the district.

Although the polls leaned heavily in favor of McClintock in the early campaign months, Morse was able to close in on almost a 50 percent of the vote share. She was also able to change the likeliness of the district from “solid Republican” to “likely Republican,” A feat that Democrats will certainly note for 2020.

McClintock sits on the Budget Committee and the Committee on Natural Resources.
