The National Journal has listed Republican Congressman
Vulnerable?
Dan Lungren as the most vulnerable Republican to lose a seat in 2012 based on redistricting.

Their brief analysis says:
The incumbent protection plan California passed in 2002 gave this suburban Sacramento district parts of GOP-leaning outlying counties. Now, census results show Sacramento County is large enough to fully contain two districts, which could force Lungren, a nine-term veteran Republican, into a more compact and more Democratic district. In 2010, while many of his GOP colleagues were cruising to reelection, Lungren barely stumbled across the finish line and could be in more serious trouble against the same opponent in 2012.
