California Primary, District-by-District: 32nd 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 32

CA-32: This district in the eastern suburbs of Los Angeles, home to Bill and Ted’s excellent adventures, is a Democrat stronghold, thanks in part to the fact that it is 60% Latino. Represented by liberal Democrat Grace Napolitano, it stretches along the two major east-west arteries of the L.A. basin, the I-210 and the I-10. There are still over 80,000 registered Republicans in the district, making it competitive for both parties on June 7,

Prospects:

Democrats: With a large Latino majority and a moderate suburban base, Clinton should prevail by a healthy margin.

Clinton 3, Sanders 2

Republicans: Cruz will be very competitive here, but the district’s disgruntled Republicans will still back Trump.

Trump 3, Cruz 0, Kasich 0
