California's 48th congressional district is located in Orange County in southern California, and includes the cities of Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest (formerly known as El Toro), Tustin, and parts of Newport Beach, San Juan Capistrano. Republican John Campbell has represented the district in the United States House of Representatives since the special election of December 7, 2005. He replaced Chris Cox, who had resigned on August 2, 2005 to become chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. In March 2009, popular Irvine two-time mayor and council member Beth Krom announced her bid to run as a Democratic candidate against incumbent John Campbell, forming possibly the most powerful opposition in a district that has historically voted overwhelmingly Republican.[1] Barack Obama narrowly won the 48th, likely the first Democrat to win this district in a statewide race in a very long time.
