Historical district boundaries[edit]

San Diego County's 41st[edit]

In the 1980s, the 41st Congressional District was one of four that divided San Diego County, formerly located in the North County region. The district had been held for 12 years by Republican Bill Lowery and was considered the most Republican district in the San Diego area. The 41st District was renumbered as the California's 51st Congressional District after the 1990 U.S. Census in which it became the Inland Empire's 51st.

San Bernardino County's 41st[edit]

From 2003 to 2013 the district included large portions of the cavernous San Bernardino County and a small portion of Riverside County. The district formerly represented parts of the Inland Empire region, San Bernardino Mountains, and Mojave Desert, stretching from portions of the city of San Bernardino north to the Nevada border and east to the Colorado River. Redlands was the largest city in that district; other cities included: Loma Linda, Yucaipa, Victorville, Barstow, Hesperia, Highland, Big Bear Lake and Needles.
