Democrats have a few problems to sweat over in this year’s midterm elections: winnowing their vast fields of candidates and navigating California’s top-two primary system, to name a couple.
But in Orange County, a key battleground as they attempt to take back the House, money doesn’t seem to be one of them.
The Los Angeles Times reports that incumbents in all four Orange County districts held by Republicans raised less money than some of their challengers in the last quarter of 2017.
The reports cover fundraising through Dec. 31, before Reps. Ed Royce of Fullerton and Darrell Issa of Vista announced they were bowing out. Their seats are two of the likeliest to flip to Democrats in November.
