Former California Assemblyman Jared Huffman, a Democrat, replaced liberal Democratic Rep. Lynn Woolsey in the newly redrawn 2nd District. Huffman ran for the seat with the support of Woolsey, who retired in 2012 after two decades in Congress.

Huffman was born in former President Truman’s hometown of Independence, Mo. He attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, on a volleyball scholarship, later becoming a three-time NCAA All-American. He was also a backup player on the U.S. volleyball team in 1987. Three years later, Huffman earned his law degree and went to work on antitrust litigation at a San Francisco-based firm before opening his own practice. His interest in student athletics led him to involvement in a variety of Title IX cases, including a landmark case in which California State University agreed to guarantee gender equity in its men’s and women’s athletics programs.

In 1994, Huffman ran for elective office for the first time and won a position on the board of the Marin Municipal Water District, an experience that led to a job with the Natural Resources Defense Council. In 2006, Huffman launched a campaign for the California Assembly, with a focus on environmental policy. He beat Democratic front-runner Cynthia Murray, a 14-year Marin County supervisor, in the primary and won in November with 65% of the vote. During his three terms, he helped block ongoing efforts by Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to construct a $356 million death row complex at San Quentin.

When he ran for the U.S. House in the 2012 election, Huffman had the support of Woolsey and Rep. Mike Thompson of the neighboring 1st District, and a celebrity endorsement from Mickey Hart, former drummer for the Grateful Dead. At a fundraiser in Petaluma, Huffman performed Steven Van Zandt’s “I Am a Patriot” with Hart. In California’s new jungle primary system, the top two vote-getters in the primary, regardless of party affiliation, advance to the general election. There were eight Democrats in the primary race, which split the progressive vote. Huffman finished first, and the splintered Democratic voting effectively eliminated Norman Solomon, an antiwar activist and media critic who would have been Huffman’s toughest opponent in the general election. The second spot went to Republican Daniel Roberts, virtually guaranteeing Huffman victory in the fall in the solidly Democratic district. He won the seat with 71% of the vote.

Huffman’s hobby is winemaking, and his collection features his own “Homemade Hooch” wine.
