Welcome to the
2015 Online Edition
Why do so many of California’s major corporations, labor unions, professional trade associations, political action committees (PACs), broadcast and print media, universities and libraries, along with elected officials, legislative advocates, political consultants and pollsters subscribe to the California Target Book?
Established in 1993, the California Target Book gives non-partisan, unbiased information to all who want to be kept fully informed and up-to-date on congressional and state legislative election campaigns in California.
This online edition includes a district-by-district coverage of each of the eighty assembly, twenty even-numbered state senate and fifty three congressional districts up for election in 2014, along with district maps, vote histories, party registration, minority voter registration, as well as profiles on likely and potential candidates in the June 2014 Top Two Primary.
There were six open congressional seats up in 2014 due to the incumbent House member not seeking reelection. 10 senate and 23 assembly districts were open seats due to term limits or the incumbent giving up the seat to run for a higher office.
The Post General Election edition is now online analyzing the November election results. The hard copy edition, an abridged version of the online edition, has also been published.
Subscribers also have access to the HOT SHEET, which keeps subscribers informed on breaking political stories and the continuing activities of candidates, political parties and legislative leaders.
