Reiff: Political Pros Handicap OC’s Pivotal House Races

Former President Barack Obama has campaigned here, both political parties are spending millions of campaign dollars here and no wonder – Orange County is at the center of national politics. Four local House races could determine control of Congress and even the fate of the Trump presidency. Republican National Committeeman Shawn Steel and Chapman University political science professor Michael Moodian analyze the candidates, issues and possible outcomes. The races pit Young Kim against Gil Cisneros, Harley Rouda against incumbent Dana Rohrabacher, incumbent Mimi Walters against Katie Porter and Mike Levin against Diane Harkey.
