Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel (R) is in the process of coalescing all of the Orange County Republican election officials behind her campaign. With only former state Sen. Janet Nguyen (R) at one time mentioning interest, it appears that Supervisor Steel may have a clear field to oppose freshman Rep. Harley Rouda (D-Laguna Beach) in what has performed, until last year, as a safe Republican seat. Should this race continue to unfold in the current pattern, CA-48 will become a top tier Republican challenge race.
