Devin Gerald Nunes, OIH, (born October 1, 1973) is the U.S. Representative for California’s 22nd congressional district, serving since 2003. He is the twelfth and, at 42 years old, youngest Member of Congress in history to serve as chairman of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Nunes’ district, numbered as the 21st from 2003 to 2013, is in the San Joaquin Valley and includes most of western Tulare County and much of eastern Fresno County.
He is a member of the Republican Party. Nunes is the author of Restoring the Republic, published by WND Books in September 2010. In the same year Time magazine named him one of the “40 under 40” rising stars of American politics—their top forty civic leaders under 40 years old.
