    The Position


    Congressmembers represent and advocate for the needs of their district constituents at the United States Capitol. They are responsible for creating, debating, and voting on legislation that addresses issues within their district.

    The United States is divided into 435 congressional districts, each with a population of about 710,000 individuals. Each district elects a representative to the House of Representatives for a two-year term. California has 53 congressional representatives, the largest delegation in the country. There is no term limit for this position.

    The District


    California’s 30th Congressional District is in Los Angeles County. Democrats typically hold this district. Of the registered voters in this district, 17% are Republican and 52% are Democrat, and the district’s demographic breakdown is 20% Latino, 13% Asian, and 5% Black. After the 2021 redistricting process, CA-30 is 3% more Democratic than it was during the 2020 general election cycle. The most recent election results show the CD-30 voted for Biden for president in 2020 by 44 points and Newsom for governor in 2018 by 54 points.

    The Race


    There are eight candidates running for this seat, including Democrat Incumbent Representative Schiff, Democrat G. “Maebe A Girl” Pudlo, and Republicans Ronda Kennedy and Johnny Nalbandian. Schiff’s campaign has raised over $9 million and is not funded by police money. He has received donations from corporate PAC, fossil fuel, and real estate interests.

    The Recommendation


    Rep. Schiff, a longtime public servant, has lived in California since 1972. According to campaign materials, Rep. Schiff is running for reelection to continue to fight for the core of America’s democracy. Rep. Schiff won their 2020 reelection against a Republican challenger by 46 points.

    Rep. Schiff’s priorities for CD-30 this year have included 26 bills about criminal justice, civil liberties, and immigration, all of which have successfully passed the House. He currently chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. This year, Rep. Schiff has voted 100% of the time with Nancy Pelosi and 95% of the time with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Rep. Schiff voted to pass the New North American Trade Agreement, while Ocasio-Cortez voted against it.

    Prior to his election to Congress, Rep. Schiff worked as a law clerk and then as Assistant United States Attorney before being elected to California’s State Senate in 1996. He is a longtime supporter of progressive education, immigration, and environmental policies. That said, he has cast unfavorable votes on issues pertaining to military spending and the use of military force.

    Rep. Schiff isn’t a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, but has the endorsement of some progressive groups. Based on our analysis, Rep. Schiff’s track record and policy positions demonstrate that he will continue to be a progressive champion for the constituents of CD-30 and will govern effectively in the best interest of this diverse district.
