California Primary, District-by-District: 15th District

Editor’s note: The presidential nominating contests in both parties will come down to the California primary.

For Democrats, 548 delegates are at stake — 11.5% of the total. For Republicans, 172 delegates are at stage — 6.9% of the total. Of those, for Democrats, 158 (29%) are divided proportionally on a statewide basis, while 317 (58%) are divided proportionally by congressional district, with each district providing between 5 and 8 delegates. The remaining 73 (13%) are “superdelegates.”

For Republicans, 13 (8%) are awarded statewide, with ten going to the candidate with the highest number of votes on a winner-take-all basis, and three going to “pre-determined” delegates (the State Chair, National Committeewoman, National Committeeman). Meanwhile, 159 (92%) are awarded by congressional district on a winner-take-all basis, with each district providing 3 delegates.

The result: a district-by-district battle in both parties, which we preview for you here.

California District 15

CA-15: The affluent, family-friendly East Bay district boasts significant high-tech and research infrastructure. Moderate Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell has proposed a technological solution to congressional absenteeism: let members vote from afar. About one-third of residents were born abroad. The district, which combines both city and suburb across the lush green hills, is home to Trump-hating avant grade artist Andrew Kong Knight.

Prospects:

Democrats: This moderate, wealthy, high-tech and immigrant-heavy district should be a stronghold for Clinton.

Clinton 5, Sanders 2

Republicans: Kasich should do well here, as will Trump, but Cruz will have slightly better organization in this target district.

Cruz 3, Trump 0, Kasich 0
