Competitiveness

The 3rd district once extended up the Sacramento Valley from Sacramento to take in rural territory up to Tehama County.

Once a Democratic bastion, the district became more conservative over the years and finally elected a Republican in 1998. The 2001 reapportionment made the district more compact and Republican than previously, though it was far less Republican than the neighboring 4th District. Although there was some movement in registration in favor of the Democrats, it still had a strong GOP flavor as most of Sacramento's Democratic voters lived in the neighboring 5th District.

While 2004 with 58.2% of the vote, the district swung rapidly in the Democratic column in 2008 with Barack Obama narrowly winning a plurality with 49.28% of the vote over John McCain's 48.81%. However despite Obama's win, in the congressional election held on the same day the Republicans retained the seat.
