Michelle Steel’s congressional campaign has continued to build strong momentum with the majority of local elected officials in the district endorsing her candidacy over the Democrat incumbent. Thus far, Steel has garnered the support of the majority of Orange County’s most influential leaders including Sheriff Don Barnes and Supervisors Lisa Bartlett, Don Wagner, and Andrew Do. Steel’s strong start has been recognized by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) who named her an “On the Radar” candidate in the important Young Guns recruitment program and has also resulted in the recent endorsement of House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy.
