California's 10th Congressional District is likely to be won by incumbent Jeff Denham (R) in 2014. However, it should be a somewhat competitive race. Cook's PVI shows the district as R+1, while Fairvote rates the district as 56.6% Republican.[3][4] Incumbent Jeff Denham (R) won election by just over 5 percent in 2012, but the district was won by President Barack Obama by 3.6% in 2012 and 3% in 2008.

Denham will face Michael Eggman (D) in the November general election.

Voter registration: To vote in the primary, voters had to register to by May 19, 2014. For the general election, the voter registration deadline is October 20, 2014 (the 15th calendar day before that election).[8]

Yea3.png On July 30, 2014, the U.S. House approved a resolution 225 to 201 to sue President Barack Obama for exceeding his constitutional authority. Five Republicans--Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Paul Broun of Georgia, Scott Garrett of New Jersey, Walter Jones of North Carolina and Steve Stockman of Texas-- voted with Democrats against the lawsuit.[10] Denham joined the other 224 Republicans in favor of the lawsuit. All Democrats voted against the resolution.[11][12]

Government shutdown

See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "Yes" On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201.[13] At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference.[14] Jeff Denham voted for the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[15]

Voted "No" The shutdown finally ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funded the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[16] The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Jeff Denham voted against HR 2775.[17]
