2nd Supervisorial Watch: Ed Royce and Dana Rohrabacher Endorses Michelle Steel

Posted by Dominus on May 23, 2013

Today the Michelle Steel for Supervisor campaign sent out this press release:


Huntington Beach, CA – Michelle Steel’s campaign for County Supervisor continued to gather momentum today, with the announcement that she has been endorsed by Republican Congressmen Dana Rohrabacher and Ed Royce.

Michelle Steel is the Vice Chair of the California State Board of Equalization, where she has represented Orange County for the past six years. She is running for Supervisor in the 2nd district.

“I have known Michelle all my life,” said Rep. Rohrabacher.  “She is honest, a hard worker and a patriot.”

“Michelle Steel is a champion for Orange County taxpayers on the BOE and I am confident she will continue her strong advocacy for taxpayers and small business owners as a County Supervisor,” said Rep. Royce.

Both Congressmen made a guest appearance at Michelle Steel’s fundraiser, hosted by OC Republican Party Chairman Scott Baugh, which brought her campaign for Supervisor to over $460,000 in the bank with another $40,000 in pledges.

“It is an honor to have the support of Representatives Rohrabacher and Royce and to know that they have faith in my ability to represent the taxpayers of the 2nd district,” said Steel.

While we will have to wait and see if Michelle Steel can raise a total of $500,000 by June 30, her current cash on hand is an impressive number in itself.  It is hard to get donors to write big checks these days when the economy is still sputtering.

    “I have known Michelle all my life,” said Rep. Rohrabacher.

    Wikipedia reports Steel’s birth date as June 21, 1955 and Rohrabacher’s as June 21, 1947. He hasn’t know her his whole life — not even, most likely, his whole adult life. Why even say something like that? Is he lying just to keep in practice?

    “I’ve known her for a long time and we have the same birthday” would have be fine — as would “even someone as unhinged and prone to loose talk as I am knows that we do NOT want to see Alan Mansoor as a Supervisor.”
