Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC)

In the third installment of our opening series about the 2020 Election, our host, Paul A. Smith, once again speaks to Leah Askarinam, Hotline Editor-in-Chief for the National Journal in Washington D.C.. Paul and Leah examine key races for open seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In 2018, Democrats were able to flip seven seats in California, making a big change and causing Republicans to lose almost half of their delegation. Four of those seats were situated in Orange County, long known as the bedrock of Republicanism in California. Listen in as Paul and Leah share insights on these and other U.S. House seats up for grabs in November 2020.

  • Can Republicans recapture the House this year, or will Democrats expand their majority?
  • What impact could the election have on the leadership roles of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy?
  • What are some key races outside of California to keep your eye on?

Discussion of several key races in California and intriguing questions like these will give you a sense of the national scene as we head toward Election Day 2020.
