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

2018 election

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

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

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