California's 2nd congressional district contains much of the far north of the state of California, north of Sacramento. It is the largest district by area in the state. The district covers all of Colusa, Glenn, Shasta, Siskiyou, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, and Yuba counties, as well as parts of Butte and Yolo Counties. It is currently represented by Republican Wally Herger, who has represented the district since 1987.

George W. Bush won the district in 2004 with 62% of the vote. John McCain carried the district in 2008 with 56.10% of the vote while Barack Obama received 41.43%.

Competitiveness

This sprawling seat covers almost all of interior northern California with the main cities in the district being Redding and the college town of Chico.

Although a long time Republican stronghold, the demographics in some areas are changing. The city of Chico in Butte County has some Democratic-leaning areas and the city of Weed in Siskiyou County holds a Democratic majority. Other counties within the current district boundary that are becoming more Democratic include Trinity County and Yuba County, which are both in a near-dead heat in registration.
