Rep. Mike Garcia

Representative for California’s 25th District

pronounced mīk // gar-SEE-uh


Garcia is the representative for California’s 25th congressional district (view map) and is a Republican. He has served since May 19, 2020. Garcia is next up for reelection in 2022 and serves until Jan 3, 2023.

On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the attack on the Capitol, Garcia voted for the exclusion of Arizona and/or Pennsylvania — states narrowly won by Democrats — from the count of Electoral College votes that determined the next President of the United States. Legislators voting to disenfranchise these states were fooled by, or actively participated in, the same lies, conspiracy theories, and preposterous legal arguments about the election that motivated the insurrection at the Capitol. Following the rejection of several cases before the Supreme Court, one legislator called for violence.
