Dr. Lisa Sparks formally files to run for Congress in California’s 45th Congressional District

Orange County Board of Education Trustee Dr. Lisa Sparks formally filed to run for Congress as a Republican in California’s 45th Congressional District. After months of strong fundraising and endorsement announcements, Sparks will enter the race with significant momentum as she looks to unseat Katie Porter next year.

“Orange County deserves a representative that puts the community first and supports policies that make our home a better place to live. I am running for Congress to fight for better education for our children, lower taxes for our businesses, and a strong economy for our residents. I am excited to officially enter this race and provide the responsive conservative leadership Orange County deserves,” stated Dr. Lisa Sparks.

“Katie Porter has proven time and time again that she is more concerned about aligning herself with Elizabeth Warren and the socialist squad than she is the needs of her community,” said Sam Oh, general consultant on the Sparks campaign. “Our campaign has the determination and resources needed to make Katie Porter a one-term member of Congress.”

The Sparks campaign continues to gain notoriety as Lisa Sparks was named an “On the Radar” candidate by the National Republican Congressional Committee in August and was recognized by Rep. Elise Stefanik’s Elevate PAC as a “Woman to Watch” in 2020.

Dr. Sparks currently serve on the Orange County Board of Education in the 5th district which overlaps 35% of the 45th congressional district. Sparks earned 56.8% of the vote, with over 80,000 votes, in a field of five candidates.

California’s 45th congressional district is completely in Orange County and includes the cities and communities of Coto de Caza, Irvine, Tustin, Lake Forest, Laguna Woods, Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Villa Park, and portions of Anaheim and Orange.
