Orange County’s Republican State Assembly Delegation Backs Front-Runner Michelle Steel

Michelle Steel’s Latest Endorsement Announcement Shows Early, Growing Strength in CA-48 Race

Huntington Beach, CA– Today, Orange County’s Republican State Assembly delegation announced they’ve unanimously endorsed County Supervisor Michelle Steel in her bid for U.S. Congress. The endorsements from the Orange County delegation continues a string of high-profile endorsement announcements for Steel in her bid to take on Democrat Harley Rouda.

The endorsements by Orange County’s Republican State Assembly delegation include:

State Assemblyman Tyler Diep

State Assemblyman Steven Choi

State Assemblyman Phillip Chen

“A tough and principled advocate, Michelle Steel is the type of leader Orange County needs representing us in Washington, D.C.,” added Assemblyman Steven Choi.

Last week in an unprecedented move, the Republican Party of Orange County endorsed Michelle Steel’s candidacy nearly 10 months before the March 2010 primary election, demonstrating her campaign’s early strength and momentum. Steel has also received the early support from several of the district’s most influential leaders, including Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes, County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett, County Supervisor Andrew Do, and the Lincoln Club of Orange County.

In 2018, Steel was overwhelmingly re-elected to represent Orange County’s 2nd supervisorial district with 63.4% of the vote. The 2nd supervisorial district overlaps 66% of California’s 48th congressional district and is solely in Orange County.

The 48th district encompasses all or portions of Aliso Viejo, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, Newport Beach, Santa Ana, Seal Beach, and Westminster.
