Kim is the favorite to win a second term in the Republican-leaning 40th District anchored in Orange County, where she is facing Democrat Asif Mahmood, a physician. Although Kim, who was born in South Korea, is the incumbent, she’s a new face to many voters in the redrawn district but its GOP tilt gives her an edge. (AP Photo/Chris Carlson, File)

              U.S. Rep. Mike Garcia, R-Calif., participates in a ceremonial swearing-in on Capitol Hill in Washington, on May 19, 2020. Garcia faces a tougher challenge this year in his left-leaning district north of Los Angeles, after it was redrawn and became even more solidly Democratic. However, the former Navy fighter pilot has shown he can beat the odds. He twice defeated Democrat Christy Smith for the seat, who is on the ballot again for another rematch in the new district, the 27th. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File)
