The district covers most of Sacramento County and part of Solano County, as well as all of Alpine, Amador and Calaveras counties.

Lungren previously represented the Long Beach area in Congress, from 1979 to 1989, and served as California's Attorney General from 1991 to 1999.

  Early life, education and career

Dan Lungren was born in Long Beach, California, of Irish, Swedish, and Scottish extraction.[2] From 1952, Lungren's father was the personal physician and a close friend of former President Richard Nixon.[3]

Lungren graduated from St. Anthony High School in 1964 and matriculated to the University of Notre Dame, where he earned an A.B. with honors in English in 1968.[4]

He returned to California to chair Youth for Nixon during Nixon's first successful run for the presidency.[5]

Lungren began his legal studies at the University of Southern California Law School but transferred to Georgetown University Law Center, where he earned his J.D. in 1971. During his years at Georgetown, Lungren worked for U.S. Senators George Murphy (R-California) and Bill Brock (R-Tennessee). From 1971 to 1972, he also was Special Assistant to the Co-Chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC). In addition, during that time, Lungren's wife, Bobbi, worked in the Nixon White House.[6]

When Lungren returned to Long Beach, he joined a law firm and practiced civil law for a short time before running unsuccessfully for Congress in 1976. He was successful in 1978.[7]

  U.S. House of Representatives (1979–1989)

Lungren first served in the House of Representatives from 1979 to 1989, representing portions of Long Beach and Orange County. He was one of Newt Gingrich's chief lieutenants during this time, and was a founding member of the Conservative Opportunity Society. He served on the House Judiciary Committee, where he pushed for sanctions against employers who hired illegal immigrants, but supported a temporary guest-worker program. He was the principal House cosponsor of the Simpson-Mazzoli immigration bill, which became the Immigration Reform Act of 1986. He also independently sponsored a "guest worker" bill, designed to allow for importation of "temporary" immigrant laborers.[8]

  California statewide offices

Lungren did not seek re-election to the U.S. House when California Governor George Deukmejian appointed him as California's acting State Treasurer, but was never confirmed.[9]

Lungren was later elected as California Attorney General in 1990, and served from 1991–1999. Lungren worked in passing such legislation as "Megan's Law," "3-Strikes-and-You're-Out", "Sexual Anti-Predator Act" and the "California's Safe Schools Plan". [10]

In 1996, he was considered as a possible running mate for Republican nominee Bob Dole. [11] In 1998 Lungren ran as the Republican candidate for governor against Democratic Lieutenant Governor Gray Davis. Davis received 57.9% of the votes, while Lungren got 38.4%. During the campaign, Davis maintained that Lungren, who presented himself as the political heir to former California Governor and US President Ronald Reagan, was too conservative for California. Davis also criticized Lungren's hesitancy, as California Attorney General, to enforce laws restricting assault weapons and his waiting until the last minute to become part of a class action lawsuit against the cigarette industry.

  Return to Congress

Lungren was elected to California's 3rd congressional district in 2004, after previously serving in the 42nd congressional district.[12]

Lungren was reappointed to the Judiciary Committee based on his previous five terms of seniority, and also serves on the Homeland Security committee.

In 2005, Lungren supported the USA PATRIOT Act, which renewed the Federal Government's ability to perform secret surveillance including wiretaps of citizens and monitoring of public and private computer packet-switched networks to prevent terrorism from hitting the United States.

In 2006, Lungren and Congresswoman Jane Harman (D-California) authored the SAFE Port Act, which improves security at the ports including additional requirements for maritime facilities, foreign port assessments, container security initiatives and Customs Trade Partnership against Terrorism. The bill passed the House with bipartisan support. In 2007, Lungren was appointed to the House Administration Committee. In 2009, John Boehner "tapped him as the ranking Republican" on the committee.[12]

Lungren has stated that he opposes "any bill brought to the floor of the House that includes an amnesty provision that confers citizenship status." He cites his concern as the millions of "legal immigrants who wait years in order to obtain permanent residence and citizenship."[13]

On July 29, 2008, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 6295, introduced by Lungren. This legislation is to stop the use of submersible and semi-submersible vessels used to transport drugs and other contrabands, which pose a threat to communities and national security. Shortly after the 2008 election, a newly reelected Lungren challenged Congressman John Boehner for Minority Leader. Lungren did not win the post. Boehner appointed Lungren as Ranking Republican Member of the House Administration Committee. To serve on this new role, Lungren left his spot with the Budget Committee.

On December 3, 2010, following the November 2 midterm elections in which Republicans won back the majority, Lungren was named Chairman of the House Administration Committee.

The National Journal's Cook Political Report named Lungren the Republican most vulnerable to redistricting in 2012.[14]

  Political campaigns

  2004

Lungren ran for Congress again in the 3rd Congressional District after six-year incumbent Congressman Doug Ose announced his retirement.[15] Lungren has stated that his desire to serve in Congress again was rekindled by the September 11, 2001 attacks. He won a come from behind victory in a three-way primary against Mary Ose and State Senator Rico Oller in 2004.[16]

  2010

Lungren was challenged by Democratic nominee Dr. Ami Bera, American Independent Jerry Leidecker, Peace and Freedom nominee Mike Roskey, and Libertarian Douglas Art Tuma. Lungren was reelected with 50.6 % of the vote, with Bera accumulating 42.7%, and 6.7% to other candidates.[17]
