Terrance John “T.J.” Cox is a businessman, engineer, and the current liberal Democrat representative from California's 21st district.

U.S. House of Representatives[edit]

2018 election[edit]

Cox was elected to the United States House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections, defeating Republican David Valadao by less than 1% of the vote.[2] While in his election bid, a controversy emerged regarding Cox's principal residence, as records then showed it to be on the other side of the country in Maryland.[3]

Tenure[edit]

Cox supported[4] and voted in favor of the impeachment coup against Donald Trump, arguing that the latter “abused his power” and was “obstructing the investigation by withholding witnesses and subpoenaed documents.”[5]

Rep. Cox has been criticized and faced with an ethics complaint for using his position as U.S. representative to visit the Yosemite National Park on Independence Day as a personal trip rather than for official business purposes.[6]

Political views[edit]

According to Vote Smart and GovTrack, Cox is mostly a liberal who supports abortion, Obamacare, and gun control.[7][8]
