Right in the middle of the Central California coast is a district that is more conservative than the rest of the state's coastal areas. Centered on San Luis Obispo County, including most of Santa Barbara County, and a small northwest portion of Los Angeles County, this area has almost always sent Republicans to the state Legislature or to Congress. The exceptions have come when the area is split, pushing half its population to the north or south, or pairing it with equally conservative inland districts. The Supreme Court did not do that, making this district safe for Republicans. This district is 6.5% African American, 3.8% Asian, 21% Latino.

District 23 (44% D - 33% R) - Lois Capps - MAP

Formerly CD 34, this district remains substantially Latino at 70.6%, followed by 11.3% Asian, and 4.3% African American. The district had gone Republican through the first half of the 1990s, but the races all were competitive and registration favors Democrats enough to keep it that way until the next redistricting.

District 39 (54% D - 27% R) - Linda Sanchez - MAP
One-third of this district's voters live in the Los Angeles County communities of Cerritos, La Mirada, and Paramount. This district formerly had a small portion within Orange County but was recently drawn to remain entirely within LA County, thus providing a relatively safe Democratic seat. These LA voters are predominantly Democratic with 54.7% registration compared to a 27.9% GOP contingent. The district has a large minority population -- 61.2% Latino, 10.6% Asian, and 6.8% African American.

Only 23.4% of the district is Latino, which is overwhelmingly White (65.6%).

District 42 (30% D - 51% R) - Gary Miller - MAP
A GOP district that includes the counties of San Bernardino, Orange, and Los Angeles, and includes the cities of Mission Viejo, La Habra, Anaheim, and Yorba Linda. It maintains only a 45% minority population, with 23.4% Latino, 17.5% Asian, and 3.4% African American.

District 43 (54% D - 31% R) - Joe Baca - MAP
Found entirely within San Bernardino County, CD 43 contains the cities of Ontario, Rialto, and Fontana. It has a 76.2% minority population, with the majority made up of Latinos (58.3%), trailed far behind by Asians (13.9%) and African Americans (4.0%). This district swallowed up Ontario to provide incumbent Joe Baca a safe Democratic seat.

Including the Orange and Riverside counties of San Clemente, Riverside, and Corona, the district is more than a third minority, with Latinos alone accounting for 35%, followed by 6.5% African Americans, and 6.0% Asians.

Within Riverside County and a historic GOP bastion that incorporates the communities of Coachella, Moreno Valley, and Palm Springs, it is more than 50% white, and has 38% Latino, 7.3% African American, and 3.8% Asian.

District 46 (32% D - 48% R) - Dana Rohrabacher - MAP
A 75% non-minority district in Los Angeles and Orange Counties that is only 16.9% Latino, 17% Asian, and 1.9% African American. It includes the cities of Avalon, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Seal Beach, and the wealthier Rancho Palos Verdes and Rolling Hills. This district was drawn to isolate Palos Verdes Republicans who troubled the Democrats throughout the 1990s. It is a safe seat for the GOP.

District 47 (48% D - 33% R) - Loretta Sanchez - MAP
Interior Orange County is relatively safe Democratic territory. It includes only portions of the cities of Santa Ana, Anaheim, and Garden Grove. It is home to a growing Latino population (65.3%), which should make it a safe Democratic seat, but maintains a Republican-leaning contingent that voted for Bill Jones in '98 for Secretary of State.

District 48 (27% D - 52% R) - Christopher Cox - MAP
