Press coverage is so important, and we seem to have the attention of journalists in Orange County and beyond. This article from the LA Times shows our impact, but we have a fight in front of us. Fred Whitaker, Orange County Republican Chairman, laughed at the idea of these seats turning. Whether he is attempting to deflect from warranted fear or not, the struggle is real and there is work to be done. Pointing out wide margins of defeat from republican congressional elections, Whitaker seems to be dismissing the possibility of flipping districts at hand. This tactic is perhaps more of an attempt to create a narrative that works best for the Republican Party. In addition, he stigmatizes protest as something unappealing to Orange County voters. Time will tell how this burgeoning movement affect local politics, but certainly we have work before us.
