Since the 2008 Presidential Election where there was a major shift in the way campaigns reached out to audiences, social media and internet presence has been a major contributing factor to the success of candidates; the trend has perpetuated the idea and emphasis of social media as being a critical element to success in the electoral politics. TurlockCityNews.com has also, in effort to keep its readers informed, conducted a series of polls and compiled research to gain a better understanding of the sentiments of Turlock voters. 
Michael Eggman (D), challenger to incumbent U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) for California’s 10th Congressional District seat will not have the opportunity to vote for himself during the Nov. 4 General Election. TurlockCityNews.com reported in April that Eggman was not a registered voter in Stanislaus County despite running to represent the area in the U.S. House of Representatives. As of Oct. 29, according to the Stanislaus County Elections office, Eggman is still not registered to vote in Stanislaus County.

Political Observers Predicting Denham Victory

Written by
The California 10th Congressional District race between Incumbent U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) and challenger Michael Eggman (D) has been regarded as one of the most highly observed races in the country in present and past election cycles, but recently, the district has gone from “toss-up,” to “likely Republican,” to what is now considered “safe Republican.” At the 60-day report from the California Secretary of State, of the 294,204 CD-10 registered voters, 37.27 percent registered Democratic, while 40.03 percent were registered Republican. Those registered as American Independent accounted for 2.90 percent, followed by .01 percent registered as Americans Elect.
With just over a week until the Nov. 4 General Election, the 2014 campaign fundraising cycle is coming to a close; a combined total of $104,381.20 has been reported in contributions to candidates in the Mayoral race, just shy of the record amount from 2006 contributions to then-candidates John Lazar and Kurt Vander Weide totaling nearly $118,000. Gary Soiseth has reported $3,219 in contributions this period — from Oct. 1 to Oct. 18 — for a yearly total of $55,479. His ending cash balance stands at $7,756 with $11,416 in outstanding debt. He reported $14,397 in expenditures this period, for a total of $54,139 year-to-date.
Mayoral candidates, Mike Brem and Gary Soiseth, along with Harinder Grewal (D), candidate for State Assembly District 12, and Michael Eggman (D), candidate for Congressional District 10, gathered at the California State University, Stanislaus Tuesday to answer the important questions raised primarily by students. The purpose of the event, according Edgar Garcia, ASI Governmental Relations Coordinator, was to inform CSUS students and community members of local candidates running to represent their community. Garcia noted that all Turlock Mayoral candidates, Assembly District 12 and Congressional District 10 candidates were invited to participate.
