Josh Harder

Incumbent

A 5th-generation resident of the Central Valley, fighting for California families

Rep. Josh Harder (CA-10) won a rural California district that Democrats struggled to flip for several cycles, even as the district went blue on the presidential level. Harder grew up in Turlock, went to public school, and spent his career helping entrepreneurs and new companies grow their businesses.

A leading voice for transparency and restoring trust in government

A leader on H.R. 1 and one of the 36 House freshmen rejecting corporate PAC money, Harder was one of the biggest targets of Paul Ryan’s Congressional Leadership Fund, and survived over $6 million in outside spending to win this close contest. Harder is a strong advocate for disclosure laws in political spending and for making sure representatives are accountable to their constituents, not corporate special interests.

A critical re-election campaign

Republican have already named Harder a top target heading into the 2020 cycle, and he has drawn a Republican challenger. Harder’s re-election will be a top priority for ECU.
