    When political insiders list the few California congressional districts that are competitive, they always mention the one that for decades has covered the central San Joaquin Valley's west side.

    It's no different this year.

    The 21st Congressional District -- which covers all of Kings and parts of Kern, Tulare and Fresno counties -- has a near majority of registered voters who are Hispanic, a reliable Democratic Party voter base, and has a Democratic voter registration edge of more than 14 percentage points.
