TURLOCK, CA - OCTOBER 25: Railroad tracks pass a farm in California's 10th congressional district on October 25, 2018 near Turlock, California. Agriculture is the main economic driver in the region and water policy is an important election issue. Democratic congressional candidate Josh Harder is competing for the seat held by Republican incumbent Rep. Jeff Denham. Democrats are targeting seven congressional seats in California, currently held by Republicans, where Hillary Clinton won in the 2016 presidential election. These districts have become the centerpiece of their strategy to flip the House and represent nearly one-third of the 23 seats needed for the Democrats to take control of the chamber in the November 6 midterm elections.
