Rep. John Duarte

The 2022 race pitting farmer and agriculture advocate John Duarte against Democrat state legislator Adam Gray was the last one decided in the 2022 cycle. Duarte prevailed by just 564 votes. Now Gray is back for a rematch and Duarte expects an even tougher race in a district where Biden beat Trump by almost 11 percent. Reclaiming this seat is a key part of Democrats’ plan to regain the majority in the House of Representatives.
