TJ Cox 2006 Elections
Cox ran for the United States House of Representatives in California’s 19th congressional district in the 2006 elections, losing to George Radanovich. At the time, the 19th district was located in the San Joaquin Valley and included portions of current California’s 21st congressional district (CA-21).
TJ Cox 2018 Elections
In the 2018 elections, Cox again ran for the United States House of Representatives, this time in CA-21. Cox began this congressional bid in 2017, competing in California’s 10th district primary race (CA-10) against several other Democratic candidates. However, Democrat Emilio Huerta (the only Democratic challenger in CA-21) withdrew from the CA-21 race immediately prior to the filing deadline to appear on the primary election ballot.
Cox withdrew from the CA-10 race to instead run in CA-21 against incumbent Representative David Valadao. He and Valadao advanced from the June 5 top-two primary election to the 6th November 2018 Midterm Elections.
As of 26th November 2018, Cox leads by 438 votes over the Republican incumbent David Valadao.
