California's 47th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of California. The district is centered in Long Beach, extends into the western Orange County cities of Garden Grove, Westminster, Stanton, Los Alamitos, and Cypress, and includes Catalina Island. The district is represented by Democrat Alan Lowenthal.

Competitiveness

Although the district's Cook Partisan Voting Index of D+13 suggests a fairly safe Democratic district, it is actually split between heavily Democratic portions of eastern Los Angeles County, centered around Long Beach, and Republican-leaning portions of western Orange County. However, the Los Angeles County portion has more than double the population of the Orange County portion (Long Beach alone accounts for half the population), pushing the district into the Democratic column.

After being reassigned to this district, the western Orange County cities explored a lawsuit to challenge being merged into a district which is dominated by a much larger city in a different county[citation needed], however nothing came of it.

Living former representatives

As of September 2019, there are two former members of the U.S. House of Representatives from California's 47th congressional district that are currently living.

Representative Term in office Date of birth (and age)
Christopher Cox 1993–2003 (1952-10-16) October 16, 1952 (age 66)
Loretta Sanchez 2003–2013 (1960-01-07) January 7, 1960 (age 59)

Historical district boundaries

From 2003 through 2013, the district consisted of many of Orange County's central suburbs, including Anaheim, Garden Grove and Santa Ana. Due to redistricting after the 2010 United States Census, the district has moved west to parts of Los Angeles County and now includes Catalina and San Clemente islands. The district also retains parts of Orange County such as Garden Grove.

In popular culture

California's 47th congressional district was the scene of a congressional election (won by a deceased Democratic challenger), and later a congressional special election (won by the Republican incumbent), featured in several episodes of the political drama The West Wing. However, in that context, several Orange County place names were referenced that are not within the current boundaries of the district, such as the city of Newport Beach. Many of these places are currently located in the 46th and 48th districts.
