CA-39 has been recognized nationally as a top pickup opportunity for Democrats in 2018. Hillary Clinton won the district with a majority of the vote by 8.6 points. The Republican registration advantage has shrunk dramatically since the district was drawn in 2011 and is now under 2 points. The Nationally respected Cook Political Report
moved this District away from the “Likely Republican” column and notes a “political outsider” is ideal to take on Ed Royce.
