California's 49th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California. The district has since 2003 been represented by Republican Darrell Issa.

The district currently 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.[5] Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is in the district.

In the 2016 election, Darrell Issa won by a margin of less than 1 percentage point. In the 2018 election, this district is considered to be a major battleground. Rep. Issa announced that he would not seek reelection.[6] Following the November 6, 2018 election, Democrat Mike Levin became the district's member-elect.[7]

Historical boundaries[edit]

2003 - 2013

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.
