Recently a Republican, Harley Rouda is now in favor of Medicare for All, a $15-an-hour federal minimum wage tied to inflation, and free tuition at public colleges. He sees these as fiscally responsible.
The Republican candidate is Dana Rohrabacher. With his strong support for Mr. Trump and pro-Russian policies, Democrats all over the country want to see him defeated.
