Midterm 2018 – CALIFORNIA House Race: Jeff Denham (R) Within TWO Points Of Josh Harder (D)
Here’s an important question. If a blue wave is coming, why is Republican Jeff Denham within two points of Democrat Josh Harder in California’s 10th District? This is California, home of the so-called resistance!
The Sacramento Bee reports:
Josh Harder, Jeff Denham running neck-and-neck for Congress, poll shows
Republican Rep. Jeff Denham of Turlock is running neck-and-neck with his Democratic challenger, Josh Harder, according to a poll from The New York Times.
It found 47 percent of those surveyed in favor of Harder, while 45 percent favored Denham and 8 percent were undecided. The poll, conducted Oct. 21-25, surveyed 501 people and had a margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.
Democrats want this seat so badly, they recently sent in Obama to campaign for Harder. The Los Angeles Times reported:
Former President Obama urged Californians on Saturday to rise up against the “anger and division” of President Trump’s Washington and replace more than a half-dozen Republicans in the U.S. House…
Joining Obama on stage at the end of his remarks were six Democrats running to replace House Republicans from California. Voters in all of their districts favored Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016.
Four of them are running to represent at least part of Orange County: Gil Cisneros, who is seeking to replace retiring Rep. Ed Royce of Fullerton; Katie Porter, who is trying to unseat Rep. Mimi Walters of Laguna Beach; Harley Rouda, who’s challenging Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of Costa Mesa; and Mike Levin, who’s running for the seat that Rep. Darrell Issa of Vista is giving up.
Obama heaped praise on each of them, as well as T.J. Cox, an engineer hoping to oust Rep. David Valadao of Hanford, and Josh Harder, a former venture capitalist challenging Rep. Jeff Denham of Turlock.
Get out and vote for Jeff Denham, California.
Don’t let the Democrats have this seat!
