Too many congressional candidates? – Orange County Register

The Buzz is the Register’s weekly political news column.

Turnout and enthusiasm at Orange County Democrats annual Truman Awards Dinner on Saturday dished up the latest reminder of the county’s changing political tilt and its national role in next year’s congressional elections.

Keynote speaker Keith Elllison, deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told the crowd that of the 24 seats his party needs to pickup to take control of the House, four of the targeted seats are those held in Orange County by Republicans Ed Royce, Darrell Issa, Mimi Walters and Dana Rohrabacher.

“Royce – he’s always going on about the private sector,” said Ellison, who also serves as a Minnesota congressman. “He should join it.  Same with Issa, Walters and Rohrabacher.”
