Speak Up Newport hosts candidates’ forums for local state races
At one of the final forums for the state races before Election Day, candidates for the 72nd State Assembly District and the 36th State Senate District addressed questions about issues currently impacting Orange County during the Speak Up Newport state candidates’ forum Wednesday night.
The organization invited all six candidates running in the two state districts and the 47th Congressional District. Rep. Katie Porter (D-Irvine) was unable to attend. Her opponent, Republican Scott Baugh, participated in the opening remarks but ceded his time to the other candidates.
