California voters will elect 52 members for their delegation to the US House of Representatives in 2022. Some of the county contests are expected to be some of the most competitive — and costly — in the country as the Republican Party looks to regain control of Congress.
In Tuesday’s primary, the two candidates with the most votes, regardless of party affiliation, will advance to the fall election; In most counties, the fight in November’s general election will be between a Republican and a Democrat.
In California, the Democratic Party currently holds 42 seats and the GOP holds 10. (One seat is vacant until filled by special elections on Tuesday). But in some counties, seats swapped between parties in recent elections, particularly in Orange County’s former conservative stronghold.
As the Congressional map was redrawn after the last census, some races have been turned upside down, with candidates choosing to run in new districts or staying in less safe districts, and some choosing not to do so at all. The state loses a seat for the first time in its history because of slower population growth.
