The Democratic Party’s clean sweep of California’s once deeply conservative Orange County brought several new far-leftists into the U.S. House of Representatives. One of the most radical is the 49th District’s new congressman, Mike Levin.
The freshman representative has already joined the communist-allied Congressional Progressive Caucus — not a surprise, considering that socialists and communists helped get Levin elected.
Levin beat Republican Diane Harkey by nearly 14,000 votes, so the Marxist-help was probably not decisive in the general election. However, one of Levin’s socialist supporters has admitted that they engineered his nomination by out-maneuvering his Democratic primary opponents.
The 49th District was always a major target for the left. When incumbent Darrell Issa retired, it became a top priority. Even before the candidate primaries had been decided, a group — Flip the 49th! Neighbors in Action — was created specifically to turn the very marginal seat blue.
“The closest Congressional race in the Country is in our backyard. In 2016, the Republican won by just 1,621 votes. In order to stop the corrupt and chaotic agenda of the Trump Administration, the Democratic Party must win control of Congress. The path to winning back the House runs straight through our home in California’s 49th Congressional District,” states the group’s website.
Flip the 49th held rallies, knocked on doors, and phone-banked for Levin. They were the backbone of his campaign.

Levin unlike Applegate had a ax to grind since he grew up in the OC and his far left ideas were less excepted. Levin won because most of the district is in San Diego not OC.
YES , definitely YES .
Most voters I know where absolutely shocked that he first , won the primary
over very credible people moderate, and pro American Democratic candidates like Douglas Applegate , and worse ,
elected in normally conservative areas of Orange and San Diego Counties , that
traditionally vote Republican
This is almost completely due to Marxists Latino and other workers turning
out the vote for him and working diligently to propagandize for their candidate .
Also -delusional and propagandized millennials , turned off by Trump .
