California's 45th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California.

The district is based in Orange County and includes all of Irvine, Tustin, North Tustin, Villa Park, Orange, Anaheim Hills, Laguna Hills, Lake Forest, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Mission Viejo, as well as parts of Anaheim, Aliso Viejo, and Laguna Niguel.

Mimi Walters, a Republican, has represented the district since January 2015.

In November 2018, Katie Porter defeated Walters in the general election, and became the first Democrat to win a House race in the district since its inception.

2018 midterm elections[edit]

Incumbent Walters competed against a field of four Democrats and an independent candidate in the primary election for the 2018 midterm elections. On February 25, 2018, UC Irvine (UCI) assistant law professor Dave Min received the endorsement of the California Democratic Party.[3]

Min, former White House senior technology advisor Brian Forde,[4] former legislative assistant to Sherrod Brown (D-OH) Kia Hamadanchy,[5] UCI law professor Katie Porter[6], and UCI business professor John Graham ran in the "top two" primary in June 2018. Walters and Porter placed first and second and advanced to the general election in November.

On November 14, 2018, 8 days after polls closed, David Wasserman, the House Editor for The Cook Political Report, projected that Porter had won the general election.[7] Porter is the first Democrat to win a US congressional race in California's 45th congressional district since its inception in 1983.
