CALIFORNIA’S 7TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

November 3, 2018 by TWN Staff
CALIFORNIA’S 7TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

Incumbent: Ami Bera (D)

Challenger: Andrew Grant (R)

Current Polling: No recent polling data available

Why this race matters: Ami Bera won this district in 2016 by a little more than 6,000 votes, in a district that has stayed close to the center. Now Republicans have nominated CEO and Trump supporter Andrew Grant to turn this seat red. If this seat flips, Democrats would be in big trouble in their quest to flip the House.
