Rep. Jeff Denham hasn’t looked out for the people of California’s 10th District. Instead he’s spent his time in Washington advancing an agenda that is out-of-touch with the values of his constituents. He’s lent his support to some of the most damaging pieces of the Trump administration’s agenda, including voting for legislation that hurts thousands of residents in his own district and passing laws that put wealthy corporations before California communities.
The midterms offer an opportunity for CA-10 voters to reject that path and elect a leader who will actually fight for their constituents on the issues that matter most—a leader like Josh Harder.
Josh Harder is a 5th-generation resident of California’s Central Valley, and he won’t forget it when he gets to Capitol Hill—he’ll always put the hard-working families of the 10th District first. Harder has outlined an ambitious agenda to revitalize the region. He knows that by investing in education, training, and infrastructure, we can boost local farms and businesses, bringing good-paying jobs to the Central Valley. He’ll work across the aisle to generate real solutions, but he won’t be afraid to stand up when President Trump’s actions threaten the values or well-being of the district.
See how Rep. Jeff Denham’s record compares to challenger Josh Harder on key issues:
Rep. Jeff Denham
- Passed legislation that would have ripped health care away from 49,900 CA-10 constituents and raised premiums.
- Passed a tax scam that hands the top 1% an average cut of $55,000, while hiking taxes on millions in the middle class. The law will add $1.9 trillion to our deficit, setting the stage for Social Security and Medicare cuts.
- Failed to protect DREAMers, who contribute $255 million to the economy in CA-10 alone.
- Weakened the background check system and passed a bill that would force states with strong gun laws to comply with lax gun laws from other states, earning an 'A' rating from the NRA since 2010.
Has vowed to protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act and fight to expand Medicare to finally make universal health care a reality in America.
As a successful business leader, Harder will help expand access to good-paying jobs, support investment in education and technical training, and make the Central Valley the agricultural technology capital of the nation.
Will fight for our immigrant communities by demanding immediate action to protect DREAMers, working toward comprehensive immigration reform, and pushing back against the Trump administration’s harmful policies.
Supports investing in water efficiency, building more water storage to capture rainfall, and increasing water production to protect the Central Valley's economy.
Will be a fierce advocate for women, from strengthening paid leave and workplace protections and policies, to standing up for reproductive rights.
We can help elect Josh Harder in November, but it won’t happen on its own.
It’ll take people like you stepping up to ensure your neighbors, family, and friends understand what’s at stake in this election, make a plan to vote, and join this fight.

“Yet the congressmen rejected a similar move by Democrats on immigration legislation in 2014, and they have sided with Trump on most other measures, including a sweeping tax overhaul, penalties for so-called sanctuary cities that protect immigrants who are in the country illegally and an unpopular effort to abolish the Affordable Care Act.”
