  1. Of course U.S. Representative Harley Rouda supports Assemblymember Cottie Petrie-Norris’ re-election to the California State Assembly, representing the 74th District. Let’s get more Radical Socialists representing Orange County and then we can have even more ILLEGAL ALIENS moving into the county and more HOMELESS FOLKS living on our streets. Yes, vote Democrat to destroy Orange County!
