It’s been a busy week in the news, starting off with the final maps from the California Citizens Redistricting Commission. Mariposa County is no longer in Congressional District CA04 but now in the ‘new’ CA05. Tom McClintock seems to be assigned to the new CA03, where Kermit Jones has announced he will be running. There’s a rumor that Kevin Kiley, a notoriously bad Republican from Placer County, will also be running in CA03.
Josh Harder is listed as our current incumbent in the new CA05 which is either R+13 or R+17 (depending on the source). However, he’s chosen to run in the new CA13, which is D+11.
We still don’t know who will be running in our new CA05.
Who will be running for Congress in the new CA05? It seems a stretch for either Kermit Jones or Tom McClintock since Roseville/Placer County are now in CA03. Part of Josh Harder’s current CA10 is now in CA05 too.
