TJ Cox

Incumbent

A son of immigrants and a community leader in California

Rep. TJ Cox (CA-21) is a community development leader, health care advocate, and entrepreneur. He started the Central Valley NMTC Fund, a community development entity that helps bring jobs and opportunity to the Valley. His district was the last House race to be called in 2018, winning an upset by less than 1,000 votes in a district that wasn’t originally considered to be competitive.

A strong voice for campaign finance reform

Cox, who is rejecting corporate PAC money, signed on as an early co-sponsor to H.R. 1, leading the way on democracy reform efforts. He supports ending the influence of big money in American elections and ensuring that every American citizen can have their voice heard at the ballot box.

A critical re-election campaign

After beating three-term incumbent David Valadao, Cox is preparing for a re-election campaign as a top Republican target. His race was considered Lean Democrat by the Cook Political Report at the beginning of the 2020 cycle, and ECU will make his re-election a leading priority.
