California Primary, District-by-District: 52nd 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 52

CA-52: This San Diego city district is one of the most hotly-contested in California, and in the nation. In 2014, Democrat Scott Peters won a close race with Republican Carl DeMaio, an openly gay former San Diego city councilman who brought in support from the national Republican Party but could not overcome a set of early dirty tricks at his expense. The district includes several key military facilities, which help make San Diego the only Republican-governed major city in the U.S.

Prospects:

Democrats: The Democrats in San Diego are somewhat conservative, but the unions are strong, and will support Sanders.

Clinton 3, Sanders 3

Republicans: Once again, the military vote will help Trump prevail in a competitive district that might otherwise lean Cruz.

Trump 3, Cruz 0, Kasich 0
