Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), the top beneficiary of trucking industry political campaign contributions for the 2018 midterms, has lost his seat in the U.S. House. CCJ originally reported last Wednesday, the day after the election, that he appeared to edge out Democratic challenger Josh Harder for California’s 10th District.
However, then-uncounted ballots from the district tilted the race in favor of Harder. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Denham received $104,000 from trucking industry contributors, including more than $20,000 from the American Trucking Associations. Those totals were preliminary figures and did not count any late influxes of donations.
