California's 9th congressional district until 2023
California's 9th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California. Jerry McNerney, a Democrat, has represented the district since January 2013.
Prior to redistricting by the
California Citizens Redistricting Commission of 2011, the 9th district encompassed part of the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. Cities in the district included Oakland, Berkeley and Castro Valley. Most of that area became parts of 13th district, while the 9th district in 2012 through 2022 was primarily made up of portions of the 18th and 11th districts from the 2002 through 2012.
Since the redistricting prior to the
2012 election, the 9th district centered on Stockton. It consisted of most of San Joaquin County and portions of Contra Costa and Sacramento counties. Cities in the district include Antioch, Galt, Oakley, Lathrop, Lodi, Mountain House, and Stockton.
With the redistricting in advance of
the 2022 elections in California, the 9th district is still centered on Stockton. However, Tracy, Manteca, and Ripon, which were formerly in California's 10th congressional district, are now part of this district, while Antioch, Lathrop and Brentwood are no longer in the district. Antioch and Brentwood are part of the new 10th district, which is now west of the 9th district (as opposed to south). As of the 2022 elections, Lathrop will be part of  the new 13th district.
Competitiveness [ edit ]
John Kerry won the penultimate version of the district in 2004 with 85.9% of the vote. Barack Obama swept the same district in 2008 with 88.13% of the vote while John McCain received 9.87% of the vote, making it Obama's best and McCain's worst performance in California. The latter version of the 9th district (starting in 2012) was substantially more competitive, though it also favored the Democratic Party. According to poll-aggregation website FiveThirtyEight, the 2022 version of the district leans toward the Democratic Party.
