California's 2nd congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California.

Jared Huffman, a Democrat, has represented the district since January 2013.

Currently, the 2nd district encompasses the northern coast of the state. It stretches from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon border and includes all of Highway 101 north of San Francisco except for part of Sonoma County. It consists of Marin, Mendocino, Humboldt, Del Norte, and Trinity counties plus portions of Sonoma County. Cities in the district include San Rafael, Petaluma, Novato, Windsor, Healdsburg, Ukiah, Fort Bragg, Fortuna, Eureka, Arcata, McKinleyville, and Crescent City, California.[2]

Prior to redistricting by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission of 2011, the 2nd district encompassed much of the far northern part of the state, from Sacramento to the Oregon border. It was the largest district by area in California. It consisted of Colusa, Glenn, Shasta, Siskiyou, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, and Yuba counties plus portions of Butte and Yolo counties.

Competitiveness[edit]

The 2nd District was historically a Republican stronghold. Redistricting made it a Democratic district. On November 6, 2012, it elected Democrat Jared Huffman to the 113th Congress.

George W. Bush won the district in 2004 with 62% of the vote. John McCain carried the district in 2008 with 56.1% of the vote. Barack Obama won the district in 2012 with 68.7% of the vote.
