The 2020 United States House of Representatives elections in California was held on November 3, 2020, to elect the 53 U.S. Representatives from the state of California, one from each of the state's 53 congressional districts. The elections coincided with the 2020 U.S. presidential election, as well as other elections to the United States House of Representatives, elections to the United States Senate, and various state and local elections. This is the first general election since 1994 where a Republican has defeated an incumbent House Democrat in California. This year a record breaking number of Republicans defeated Democratic house incumbents. Young Kim defeated Gil Cisneros in District 39, Michelle Park Steel defeated Harley Rouda is District 48, and David Valadao defeated TJ Cox in District 21 to reclaim his old seat.
