              FILE - U.S. Rep. David Valadao, R-Calif., poses during a ceremonial re-enactment of his swearing-in ceremony in the Rayburn Room on Capitol Hill in Washington on Jan. 6, 2015. Valadao is trying to win a return trip to Congress. He's proven resilient before. Valadao, who emphasizes a bipartisan streak, has won in a heavily Democratic, largely Latino district before. He held his seat from 2013 until January 2019, lost it for a term, then won it back in a 2020 rematch with Democrat T.J. Cox. He's facing Democrat Rudy Salas in a newly redrawn district.

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.

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)
