In the fight for California’s 48th congressional district, Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel has finished on top of a crowded Republican field to secure her place on the November general election ballot. Steel is set to face Harley Rouda this November, which is likely to become one of the most highly-targeted and expensive battles of the 2020 election cycle.
“Tonight’s victory is a result of the volunteers and supporters who have knocked doors, called voters, and helped spread the message that it is time for new leadership in Orange County. This campaign is built on fighting for what matters most to Orange County residents, and we will continue this fight through November.
“I launched this campaign on a simple priority: Lower taxes and let our economy thrive. My own story as an immigrant has allowed me to see that a bloated government stifles economic growth and limits an individual’s potential to succeed.
“I have spent my time in local government fighting for real change. I have fought to protect taxpayers, worked toward solutions to our homelessness crisis, and passed policies to protect our beaches and bays.
I am ready to take these fights to Congress, and I am truly honored and thankful for the support I have received,” said Michelle Steel, Chair of the Orange County Board of Supervisors.
