Sara Jacobs (born February 1, 1989) is an American politician. She is currently running as a Democratic candidate to replace Darrell Issa in California's 49th congressional district, which includes parts of coastal North County San Diego and south Orange County.

Early life and career[edit]

Jacobs was born on February 1, 1989 in Del Mar, California, the daughter of Jerri-Ann and Gary Jacobs and the granddaughter of Joan and Irwin Jacobs. Her father worked as a philanthropist and businessman, and she was raised in a Jewish household. She attended Torrey Pines High School, and received both her bachelor's degree in political science and her master's degree in international affairs from Columbia University.[1]

After college, Jacobs pursued a career in policy. From 2012 to 2014 she worked at two departments in the United Nations and at UNICEF, before working at the United States Department of State and as a foreign policy adviser for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.[2] In 2017, Jacobs worked as the founding CEO of the educational nonprofit Project Connect.[3]

2018 congressional campaign[edit]

On November 16, 2017, Jacobs announced she was running for Congress in California's 49th district, as a member of the Democratic Party. She was encouraged to run by the abortion-rights advocacy group EMILY's List.[4] At the time of her announcement, the other candidates in the race were Democrats Mike Levin, Doug Applegate, and Paul Kerr, and Republican incumbent Darrell Issa. Issa later announced he would not be running for re-election.
