{{Redirect|CA-8|the state route|California State Route 8 (disambiguation)}} '''California's 8th congressional district''' is a [[congressional district]] in the U.S. state of [[California]] that covers most of the city and county of [[San Francisco, California|San Francisco]] except for the southwestern parts of the city which are included in the [[California's 12th congressional district|12th Congressional District]]. [[Democratic Party (United States)|Democrat]] [[Nancy Pelosi]], the former [[Speaker of the United States House of Representatives|Speaker of the House]], has represented the district since 1993 when the area was redistricted from the {{ushr|California|5|5th Congressional District}}. The 8th District is one of the most reliably [[United States Democratic Party|Democratic]] districts in the country, though progressive third parties like the [[United States Green Party|Green Party]] often poll well in the district. It is geographically the smallest congressional district in the nation outside of [[New York City]]. The district gave [[John Kerry]] his best performance in [[California]] in [[United States presidential election, 2004|2004]], backing the Democrat with 84.2% of the vote. [[Barack Obama]] continued on this trend in [[United States presidential election, 2008|2008]] when he received 85.22% of the vote in the district while [[John McCain]] received 12.38%. {{Toclimit|3}} ==Demographics== According to figures from the [[U.S. Census Bureau]], the district is 42.9% white, 28.7% Asian, 15.7% Hispanic and 8.6% black. The [[2000 United States Census|2000 U.S. Census]] also revealed that the district contains the highest number of same-sex couples per capita in the nation. Of 97,305 couples residing in the district, 7,521 (or 7.73%) were same-sex. Included in the district within the city of San Francisco is [[The Castro, San Francisco, California|The Castro]] district, a well known gay neighborhood. ==List of representatives== {| class=wikitable |- valign=bottom !
