The District 30B seat is an open seat. It was redrawn in the 2012 round of redistricting following the 2010 US Census. It marries the western parts of South County, currently single-member District 33B, held by Del. Bob Costa, who is retiring. The eastern part of the seat is currently District 30, a three-member district held by Speaker Mike Busch and Del. Herb McMillan. The third member, Del. Ron George, is running for governor.
