California's 5th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California.

Mike Thompson, a Democrat, has represented the district since January 2013.

Currently, the 5th district encompasses the much of California's wine country. It consists of Napa County plus portions of Contra Costa, Lake, Solano, and Sonoma counties. Cities in the district include Cotati, Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Napa, American Canyon, Vallejo, Benicia, Hercules, and part of Martinez.[2]

Prior to redistricting by the California Citizens Redistricting Commission of 2011, the 5th district encompassed the city of Sacramento and some of the surrounding area.

John Kerry won the district in 2004 with 61.1% of the vote. The district swung more into the Democratic column in 2008 when Barack Obama won 69.62% of the vote while John McCain received 28.40%.
