Orange County, California: Key Battleground for 2018 Midterm Elections

Written by  Adelle Nazarian

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told donors on Saturday that Orange County is one of the key battleground regions in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.

Speaking at the Orange County GOP’s annual Flag Day fundraiser on Saturday, Nunes — who is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee — sounded off on the importance of receiving support from Republican donors in the region, which is seen as critical in the fight against the Golden State’s Democratic stronghold.

“It is so critical for us to win here and keep winning here,” Nunes, who was the event’s keynote speaker, said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

A usually-strong Republican California enclave, Orange County is now at risk of turning blue. The 2016 presidential election was the first since 1936 that the county went to a Democrat, Hillary Clinton.

In February, the Democrats launched an assault on 20 Republicans whose seats are seen as being at risk during the 2018 midterm elections. Four of those seats are wholly or partially in Orange County, and belong to :Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA-39), Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA-49), Rep. Mimi Walters (R-CA-45), and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA-48).

Republicans have similarly launched a campaign against at least four California Democrat Congressmen who they plan to target and defeat next year.

Pity the conservatives in California who are so out-numbered by liberals and what a shame that such a beautiful state is being ruined by the liberal agenda of incompetence. Meanwhile so many of those liberals in California are fleeing the mess that they helped establish and when they get to another state they strive to make the new state into the one they just left. Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over & over and expecting a different result? Seems to fit the liberal agenda.
