“Safe” Space? Nunes, Trump Bring New Attention To 22nd Congressional District Race

California’s June Primary is around a month away, and some local races are starting to heat up. One of them is in a congressional district that hasn’t seen a close race in years, and now the 22nd Congressional District is drawing renewed national and local attention. At an office in west Fresno, volunteers are calling registered Democrats. Some volunteers are seasoned voters, but this is the first election 18-year-old Ashley Davis will vote in. She and the other volunteers are spending the evening making calls for the Andrew Janz campaign with hopes that they flip the 22nd Congressional District from Republican to Democrat. Political analysts say the likelihood of that happening is slim. The majority of registered voters are Republicans and the incumbent, Congressman Devin Nunes, has held the seat for 15 years. But for the first time, Nunes is up against a candidate with a strong ability to fundraise and historic trends that suggest Republican seats aren’t as safe as usual. Kyle Kondik
