Republican incumbents, however, still own substantial leads with their packed war chests.

Democratic Congressional candidates are outraising Republicans in key districts in the Central Valley. 

Here’s a look at the latest fundraising totals, covering Feb. 15 through March 31: 

Congressional District 9 

Rep. Josh Harder (D–Tracy) raised $321,855.63 in the period while spending $371,364.25. He is left with nearly $2.75 million left in his war chest.

Gray, who lost to Duarte in 2022, raised $813,141.62 and spent $117,444.49. While he outraised Duarte by a significant margin, his war chest is several hundreds of thousands of dollars less than his opponent’s at $1.15 million.
