Rouda Continues to Turn up the Heat on Rohrabacher

Rouda has Released yet Another Camapaign ad in OC’s Contentious 48th CD

In what is proving to be one of the most competitive congressional races in the state, Orange County’s Democratic challenger Harley Rouda is continuing to fight down to the wire against Republican Incumbent Dana Rohrabacher.

After publishing an op ed yesterday afternoon outlining the candidates strong stance on environmental protection, today he has released yet another campaign video in an effort to win over last minute voters in a final push.

The video, built around “We the People”, which is one of the candidates campaign slogans, features Rouda at several of his rallies conversing with constituents and proudly standing with his family. “We the people, we’re not career politicians, we’re not corporate pacts and we the people are tired of Congress not working for us,” says Rouda before adding “I’ll take on the big drug companies” and “I’m not taking any money from corporate pacts.” The latter of the three statements serving to be a direct shot at Rohrabacher’s campaign which has already taken more than $100,000 from PAC’s.

Rouda led Rohrabacher during the late summer months including August and September, however, recent polls have placed him behind the Republican despite out funding the 15-term politician by nearly $4.4 million. Part of this lack of funding from Rohrabacher is due his surprising failure to gather an endorsement from the Republican Party. The letdown has certainly fueled the Democrats hopes of flipping the 48th CD blue.

After speaking with sources from the Rouda campaign, we were able to confirm that his video will not be aired state-wide, but rather on a social media platform.
