Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar’s campaign to represent California’s 31st Congressional District received a boost this week.

He was one of eight candidates included on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s Jumpstart program, which will support candidates attempting to unseat incumbent Republicans. Michael Eggman is the only other Californian on the list. He will face Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Modesto.

“From our perspective it means we will have continued resources and support as we seek to represent Inland Empire families in this campaign,” Aguilar said.

Rep. Gary Miller, R-Rancho Cucamonga, holds the 31st Congressional District seat. The district, which stretches from Rancho Cucamonga to Redlands, leans Democratic.
