California's 4th congressional district covers the northeastern corner of California along Route 395, covering El Dorado, Placer, Nevada, Sierra, Plumas, Lassen, and Modoc counties, as well as parts of Butte County including Oroville and a small portion of Sacramento County including Orangevale. The district is an intense swing district that is currently represented by Tom McClintock, a Republican who was elected in 2008.

As of 2006, Republicans had 48 percent of voter registrations; Democrats had 30 percent and Libertarians had roughly 5 percent.[1]

Competitiveness

The population center in this interior California seat lies in the Sacramento suburbs in Placer County and El Dorado County which have seen explosive growth in the past decade. Recent electoral results notwithstanding, the district's lopsided Republican registration edge gives the GOP a massive leg up in any contest in this district.

George W. Bush won the district in 2004 with 61.3% of the vote. John McCain carried the district in 2008 with 53.98% of the vote while Barack Obama received 43.83%.

2008

Doolittle announced his retirement in early 2008, so in the congressional election, Brown again won the Democratic nomination while State Senator Tom McClintock won the Republican primary, defeating former Congressman Doug Ose (who represented the nearby 3rd District from 1999 to 2005), Suzanne Jones, and Theodore Terbolizard. Former state senator Rico Oller was initially making plans to run, but pulled out after McClintock announced in order to prevent splitting the conservative vote in the primary.

Tom McClintock narrowly defeated Charlie Brown, based on returns from the Secretary of State, with 100.0% of precincts reporting.[2]
