Doherty was first elected in 2015. In 2019, he secured the seat with 52.7 per cent of the vote.

Before him, the riding was held for more than a decade by Conservative Dick Harris.

This seat is far from a swing riding, but the Liberals had a surprising showing in 2015, losing by fewer than 3,000 ballots.

Cariboo–Prince George encompasses parts of Prince George, parts of the Bulkley-Nechako Regional District, the District of Vanderhoof, and parts of the Cariboo Regional District.
