In what was expected, Republican Jeff Denham easily manhandled the Democrat Jose Hernandez for the newly formed California 10th Congressional District seat. With 100% of the precincts reported minus provisional ballots, the final tally is 54.70% to 45.30% Denham. He will represent Stanislaus County and nearby cities such as Ripon, Tracy and Manteca in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Many politicians viewed this election crucial to their party overall well-being. So both parties launched campaign attacks at each other which turned out to be an unpleasant one to watch. It got so bad that Denham had to file a defamation lawsuit against the Democratic Party in order to remove a TV ad. Over $12 million (combined) went into both the Denham and Hernandez campaign. And only one came out the true victor, that is, Denham. That is folks, wasted money at its finest for the Valley.
