According to the Washington Post, redistricting has transformed the 3rd District from a safe seat into a swing district. With 10th District incumbent John Garamendi (D) displaced into the 3rd, the newly drawn district will be a battleground for Republicans and Democrats fighting for control of the House.[4]
