Walters is not even trying to defend her record as a member of the House of Representatives because, quite frankly, it is indefensible. Walters’ voting record in Congress has been utterly deplorable. Click here to see just how bad it has been! Continue reading
It looks like U.S. Rep. Mimi Walters won’t get to sail to reelection in 2016 without a fight. Mission Viejo Councilman Greg Raths has pulled papers to challenge Walters again, in the 45th Congressional District, according to OC Political.
Raths ran against Walters in 2014 but he was later elected to the Mission Viejo City Council. Now he has a title and can raise a lot more money than he did in 2014. Continue reading

March Special Election for State Senate Expected
By O.C. Supervisor Todd Spitzer
House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio administers the oath of office to Congresswoman Mimi Walters in the Rayburn Room as her husband, David Walters, and their four children look on.
On Tuesday in the United States Capitol, Speaker John Boehner administered the oath of office to all 435 members of the United States House of Representatives, including new Congresswoman Mimi Walters. The first Republican woman to represent Orange County in the United States House of Representatives (and the third woman ever after the sister pair of Loretta and Linda Sanchez), Walters replaces John Campbell as the Member of Congress for California’s 45th District, which consists of most of inland Orange County and encompasses nearly the entirety of the Third Supervisorial District, except for Yorba Linda, Orange west of the 55 Freeway, and portions of Anaheim Hills west of Imperial Highway.

We’d hope (and even pray) that the House Republicans not suffering with a case of cranial rectal inversion pay attention to Texas Rep. Louis Gohmert’s announcement on Fox this a.m. that he wishes to replace the simply terrible John Boehner.
Boehner is a poster boy RINO and completely fails to appreciate that the Rs won a huge victory in November. A GOP House majority could effectively use their power to offset the next two years of damage which Obama will cause, start some healing of the budget and stop Obamacare and amnesty. Gohmert could accomplish that; Boehner will sell us out (again).
We’ll be watching closely to see how Orange County Congressmen/women handle this month. Mimi Walters could use this opportunity to support Gohmert and immediately establish herself as a freshman to be reckoned with. Ed Royce likely isn’t smart or brave enough to take the Gohmert option — he’s establishment and will revert to his usual ‘go along, get along’ strategy that’s caused him to have so little impact over his career (but protected his incumbency). And we actually think that Dana Rohrabacher is conservative enough to do the right thing, even though he’s long washed up as a member of Congress and only in it for the money (and to keep his wife on the payroll).

Term-limited Orange County Supervisor John Moorlach has decided to run for the 37th State Senate District, which has been vacated by Mimi Walters, who is going to replace John Campbell in the U.S. House of Representatives, according to the Flash Report.
What this means is that Moorlach, who is well known for having predicted the Orange County bankruptcy (which was caused by a Democrat, Bob Citron, who was the OC Tax Collector-Treasurer at the time), will be facing off against State Assemblyman Don Wagner.
Wagner could have a tough time dealing with those opposed to his “openness to amnesty, as evidenced by a controversial letter that he signed addressed to members of Congress from late last year. Wagner was one of two local Assemblymen out of a total of 15 Legislators statewide who were signatories to a letter encouraging Congress to pass an amnesty bill, according to the OC Tea Party Blog.
