A week after the midterm elections, Democratic challenger Josh Harder is the winner in the race to represent California's 10th Congressional District in the Central Valley.
Harder beat out Republican incumbent Jeff Denham, who has served in Congress since 2011.
Denham, who led the votes after Election Day but was eventually overtaken by Harder in the following days, conceded Wednesday.
Harder said he shares the enthusiasm of many newly elected members of Congress.
"This is going to be, I think, the most diverse freshman class in U.S. House of Representatives history," Harder told The California Report on Wednesday. "And just judging from some of the conversations that we're having, I think it's going to be a really exciting Congress where we actually have a chance to put in things that people elected us on just last week."
