California's 4th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California.

Tom McClintock, a Republican, has represented the district since January 2009. Currently, the 4th district encompasses the Sierra from Truckee to the Sequoia National Forest. It consists of Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Mariposa, and Tuolumne counties plus portions of Fresno, Madera, Nevada, and Placer counties.[5] Prior to redistricting by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission of 2011, the 4th district encompassed the northeast corner of the state, stretching from the eastern suburbs of Sacramento north to the Oregon border. It consisted of El Dorado, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, and Sierra counties plus portions of Butte and Sacramento counties.

2020 presidential primary[edit]

California will hold its 2020 presidential primary in March 2020 rather than early June, as it has been since 2008. Intended to increase the populace state's influence in the primary process, with this shift California will now contribute 37 percent of the elected delegates on Super Tuesday, a factor which will have broad implications for the 2020 election cycle.[6]

Competitiveness[edit]

George W. Bush won the district in 2004 with 61.3% of the vote. John McCain carried the district in 2008 with 53.98% of the vote while Barack Obama received 43.83%.[citation needed]

As of 2006, Republicans had 48 percent of voter registrations, Democrats had 30 percent, and Libertarians had roughly 5 percent.[7]

A Democratic congressional candidate nearly won the district in 2008, losing by only half a percentage point and less than 1,600 votes, indicating that the district was much more competitive than it appeared to be. But in the more recent [8] 2012 and 2014 elections the Republican candidate won over 60% of the vote indicating the District remains solidly Republican.

New district boundaries for the 2012 elections shifted the population center to the south and east. Registered Democrats and Independents/Decline to State voters in the new district area outnumber registered Republicans by 12%. However Republicans, Independents/Decline to State and small third parties outnumber Democrats well over a 2 to 1 ratio. There are 183,800 Republicans, 117,300 Democrats and 97,200 other.[9]

While 2018 saw 7 of California's Republican held House seats fall to Democrats, Republican Tom McClintock held his district by more than 8% over Democrat Jessica Morse.[10]

2018 election cycle[edit]

In 2018, six Democratic candidates filed statements of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).[72] They were, in alphabetical order by last name: Regina Bateson; Roza Calderon; Richard Martin; Robert Lawton; Jessica Morse; and Rochelle Wilcox. Martin and Wilcox[73] dropped out of the race, with Wilcox[74] endorsing Morse in February.

Retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Charlie Brown, who was the Democratic nominee for this seat in 2006 and 2008, was "seriously considering" running in 2018,[75] but decided in June 2017 against a third campaign. In January 2018, Brown endorsed Morse for the nomination.[76] Bob Derlet,[77] the Democratic nominee in 2016, also endorsed Morse in January.

On the Republican side, McClintock has one challenger, Mitchell Kendrick White, who filed with the FEC in January.[78]

In February, the California Democratic Party endorsed[79] Jessica Morse for the Democratic Nomination. However, the California jungle primary system means that only the two candidates with the most votes on June 5, regardless of party, will go on to the general election on November 6. Both Republicans and four Democrats appeared on the jungle primary ballot.[79]

Morse finished second in the Nonpartisan blanket primary in June 2018, but in the November general election, McClintock held the district with an 8+ advantage.[80]

Living former Members[edit]

As of April 2015, there are two former members of the U.S. House of Representatives from California's 4th congressional district that are currently living. The most recent representative to die was Robert Leggett (served 1963–1979) on August 13, 1997.

Representative Term in office Date of birth (and age)
Vic Fazio 1979–1993 (1942-10-11) October 11, 1942 (age 77)
John Doolittle 1993–1999 (1950-10-30) October 30, 1950 (age 69)
