California Congressional Redistricting: Competitive Districts in 2022

California's independent redistricting commission approved a new congressional map earlier this week. While the map is not yet certified, it is all but certain to be in the near future. For the first time since statehood, California is losing a congressional district. It will have 52 for the next decade, still by far the most in the nation.

This article, written by Lakshya Jain (@lxeagle17) of Split Ticket, provides an overview of those districts seen as competitive in the newly approved map. 270toWin will be adding the district shapes for California (as well as those for Arizona and New Jersey) to the 2022 House Interactive Map in the near future.
