State Seal

In most contests, candidates have already lined up and begun raising funds. Of California's 52 House seats and two US Senate seats, in 2024 we've got five open seats with the incumbent declining reelection and another two or three that could legitimately be called "Toss Ups"

Remember that nothing is final yet. It's only Saturday, February 24, 2024 so candidates still have 0 days before the start of filing. 

Key:
BOLD = incumbent seeking reelection
CROSSED = incumbent not seeking reelection / withdrawn candidates
Regular = declared candidate
Italic = Potential/rumored candidate
