Why this Race Matters most:
The district has become increasingly diverse and is not represented by ultra-conservative Republican policies. The right-wing incumbent has been re-elected for 15 years because Democrats didn’t vote. This race has a strong chance of having a Democrat elected, if Democrats show up to the polls to support Elizabeth Guzman.
