Michelle Steel flipped Democrat Harley Rouda’s seat red in 2020 after Democrats stole Orange County in 2018 with ballot harvesting.
Recall, Orange County, a traditionally conservative enclave in Southern California turned all blue after Democrats found hundreds of thousands of votes post election day in 2018.
Ballot harvesting and mail-in ballots have destroyed California and now the entire country is watching in horror as the Democrats use the same strategy to steal races.
