The 33rd congressional district includes Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Beverly Hills, Agoura Hills, Venice, Mar Vista, and the South Bay.

Another local race to watch is the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Third District seat, which is currently held by soon to be termed out LA County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky

Potential candidates for this race include former state Sen. Sheila Kuehl, former Santa Monica Mayor Bobby Shriver, West Hollywood Councilman John Duran, and former Malibu Mayor Pamela Conley Ulich.

The third supervisorial district encompasses Santa Monica as well as Beverly Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, San Fernando, West Hollywood, Westlake Village, and a handful of unincorporated areas such as Agoura and Universal City.
