The newly configured 2nd Congressional District of California (CA-2) now includes all of Marin County and the coastal portion of Sonoma County in the south and all of Mendocino, Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity Counties in the north. The district was formerly represented by retiring Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey in the 6th District (south) and Congressman Mike Thompson in the 1st (north). Due to Congresswoman Woolsey’s retirement, the 2nd District is an open seat. Mike Thompson, current District 1 Representative, will now run in the reconfigured 5th District.
