Orange County Congresswoman Michelle Steel recently announced her run for reelection to the U.S. House of Representatives.
The congresswoman plans to run in the newly-drawn 45 Congressional district, which encompasses portions of Steel’s current district, including Westminster, Garden Grove, Fountain Valley, and Midway City. Steel has also represented many other portions of the district during her terms as Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors and as Vice Chair of the California State Board of Equalization.
Steel said she plans to continue her fight of holding government accountable to the people and fighting high taxes hurting many middle class American families.
“Californians today are facing so many challenges– from high taxes to concerns over affordability, crime, and the quality of education our children receive,” stated Rep. Steel. “Although the district lines have changed, my mission has not. I have spent my entire career as a public servant fighting to protect California taxpayers, to lower crime rates, and to hold government accountable when it fails the people, and I will continue to do that work.”
So far, the Congresswoman’s campaign has raised $2.1 million through in the first three quarters cycle from broad grassroots support and a robust small dollar program.
Steel has also been endorsed by Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, the Orange County Republican Party, Rep. Young Kim, Rep. Ken Calvert, former Rep. Mimi Walters, and Orange County Board of Supervisors Chairman Andrew Do.
“In Congress, Michelle Steel has kept her promise of being a strong voice for the voiceless by standing up to out-of-touch Washington politicians and their extreme agenda that would hurt California working class families,” added Sam Oh, Steel’s political advisor. “Congresswoman Steel and our team have been working tirelessly for the past year and we are more than ready.”
In her 2020 election, Steel made headlines after winning against incumbent Harley Rouda.
