SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- A hotly contested South Bay congressional between Rho Khanna and incumbent Mike Honda will wait until November for an answer.

Khanna is appealing to a younger demographic and to those who want District 17 to be something different.

"Let's send a message to this country that change is coming. It's coming from Silicon Valley that we are going to make our democracy what it should be," Khanna said.

In San Jose, Honda's volunteers were working, non-stop, making phone calls and knocking on doors.
