AP Political Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Heavily Democratic California might appear an unlikely national battleground.

Leaders in both parties agree that the outcome in California could be the lever that determines who holds the gavel in 2025. About 10 districts appear to be in play statewide, mostly in the Central Valley and Southern California suburbs. The House has 219 Republicans, 213 Democrats and three vacancies.
