California's 1st congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California.

Doug LaMalfa, a Republican, has represented the district since January 2013.

Currently, the 1st district encompasses the northeastern part of the state. It consists of Butte, Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, and Tehama counties plus portions of Glenn, Nevada, and Placer counties.[2]

Prior to redistricting by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission of 2011, the 1st district encompassed the northern coast of the state. It consisted of Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino and Napa counties plus portions of Sonoma and Yolo counties. Much of that area is now the 5th district, while the current 1st district comprises much of the territory that had been the 2nd district.

Competitiveness[edit]

The GOP held the seat for all but three years from 1949 to 1983. After 20-year incumbent Don Clausen was unseated in 1983, the district was a swing area for most of the next 15 years. The GOP last held the seat in 1998 when U.S. Representative Frank Riggs decided to run for the U.S. Senate. Riggs was replaced by long-time Democratic Assemblyman and State Senator Mike Thompson. Redistricting in 2001 added Democratic-leaning areas of Yolo County.

John Kerry won the district in 2004 presidential election with 59.7% of the vote. Barack Obama carried the district in 2008 presidential election with 65.60% of the vote.
