En­gin­eer TJ Cox (D) will chal­lenge Rep. Jeff Den­ham (R), “mak­ing him the sev­enth Demo­crat to sign up to op­pose” the in­cum­bent. “Cox, 53, has already run for Con­gress in the area. In 2006, he lost to” Den­ham’s pre­de­cessor, former Rep. George Radan­ovich (R) “with 39.4% of the vote in what was then the 19th Con­gres­sion­al Dis­trict.”

“Cox in 2011 foun­ded Cent­ral Val­ley NMTC Fund, an or­gan­iz­a­tion that in­vests mil­lions in pub­lic and private funds in eco­nom­ic­ally dis­ad­vant­aged Cent­ral Val­ley com­munit­ies. The group’s pro­jects in­clude build­ing com­munity health clin­ics, ag­ri­cul­tur­al edu­ca­tion pro­grams and the North Fork Bioen­ergy Plant, ac­cord­ing to his cam­paign.” (Los Angeles Times)
