Sixty of the 80 current California Assembly members are Democrats, and because California is an overwhelmingly blue state, political analysts are not expecting any major shift in power to happen in the state legislature. San Diego is represented by Assembly Districts 76, 78, 79 and 80. The closest race will likely be the 76th which spans northern San Diego and parts of North County like Poway. The incumbent candidate Brian Maienschein became a Democrat in 2019, denouncing former President Trump and now he faces Republican challenger Kristie Bruce-Lane, founder of a non-profit and director of the Municipal Water District.
