Santana: The Battle for OC in 2020 Shifts Early Into High Gear

The battle for the 2020 election in Orange County kicked off this month with both Democratic and Republican central committees electing new officers and debating new directions for both parties. Democrats are pondering whether they can sustain the Blue Wave while Republicans debate new get-out-the–vote dynamics such as ballot harvesting as well as public engagement strategies. The first real poll on both parties comes back in March with a heated special election for Third District County Supervisor, with both parties fielding high profile names in the race. Today is the filing deadline for candidates.
