California's 53rd congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California. It is currently represented by Democrat Susan Davis.

The district is currently in San Diego County. It includes eastern portions of Chula Vista, western portions of El Cajon, central and eastern portions of the city of San Diego, as well as eastern suburbs such as Bonita, La Mesa, Lemon Grove, and Spring Valley in their entirety.[5]

Historical boundaries[edit]

2003 - 2013

From 2003 through 2013, the district was primarily coastal; it included western San Diego as well as Coronado and Imperial Beach. After the 2010 census, the district was shifted eastward and lost its coastal focus, so that it now covers east central San Diego and eastern suburbs.
