The race for California's 4th Congressional District features one of the state's most conservative politicians running against a first-time candidate. Bob Derlet and incumbent Tom McClintock are running for the 4th Congressional seat in California. Healthcare, water and immigration are part of their platforms. 

Democratic incumbent Ami Bera is being challenged for the 7th Congressional seat by Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones, who is a Republican. Both men have faced controversy during their campaigns.

Jeff Denham is the Republican incumbent for the 10th Congressional seat and Michael Eggman is the Democratic challenger. Both men are farmers and say they support new reservoir construction, a strong military, and responsible logging to thin forests.
