Incumbent Julia Brownley (D) is a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's Frontline Program. The program is designed to help protect vulnerable Democratic incumbents heading into the 2014 election.
Brownley defeated Republican former state legislator Tony Strickland for the open 26th District seat in the general election on November 6, 2012, earning 52.7% of the total vote. The following April, Strickland filed his campaign paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to begin raising money for a 2014 re-match against Brownley.
