California's 49th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California. The district covers the northern coastal areas of San Diego County, including the cities Oceanside, Vista, Carlsbad and Encinitas, as well as a small portion of southern Orange County.[2] Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is located within the district.

The district is currently represented by Republican Darrell E. Issa.

Geography[edit]

Before the 2002 redistricting, most of the territory currently located in the district was previously located in the 48th District. The 49th District was located farther south, encompassing most of what is now the 53rd District.

Before the 2012 redistricting the district extended further inland to include a portion of southern Riverside County and most of northern San Diego County.
