Michael Joseph Garcia (born April 24, 1976) is an American politician and former United States Navy pilot serving as the U.S. representative for California's 27th congressional district. A Republican, he was first elected in a May 2020 special election and went on to win a full term in the general election. Garcia was born in Granada Hills, California, and educated at Saugus High School, the United States Naval Academy, and Georgetown University. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1998 to 2012, participating in multiple combat missions during the Iraq War. Following his active duty in the Navy he worked at Raytheon Intelligence & Space. Garcia has faced and defeated Democratic nominee Christy Smith in all three of his successful elections: the 2020 special election held to fill the vacancy caused by Representative Katie Hill's resignation; the 2020 general election, when he won his first full term; and the 2022 general election, when he won his second term. Due to redistricting, Garcia represents the new 27th district in the 118th United States Congress.
