California's 3rd congressional district covers most of Sacramento Countymarker and part of Solano Countymarker, as well as all of Alpinemarker, Amadormarker and Calaverasmarker counties. Since 2005, Republican Dan Lungren has represented the district.

Competitiveness

This seat once extended up the Sacramento Valley to take in rural territory up to Tehama Countymarker. The 2001 reapportionment plan reconfigured the seat, but as in its previous incarnation, the bulk of the population lies within the suburbs of Sacramento Countymarker.

Once a Democratic bastion, the district became more conservative over the years and finally elected a Republican in 1998. The 2001 reapportionment made the district more compact and Republican than its predecessor, though it is far less Republican than the neighboring 4th District. Although there has been some movement in registration in favor of the Democrats, it still has a strong GOP flavor as most of Sacramento's Democratic voters live in the neighboring 5th District.

In 2008, Republican incumbent Dan Lungren faced a competitive reelection campaign against Democratic candidate Bill Durston. Lungren was eventually reelected by a 5.5-point margin, significant amongst the multitude of safe districts state and nation wide.

While George W. Bush carried the district in 2004 with 58.2% of the vote, the district swung rapidly in the Democratic column in 2008 with Barack Obama narrowly winning the 3rd District with 49.28% of the vote over John McCain's 48.81%.
