The traditionally conservative Southern California enclave of Orange County has turned entirely Democratic in the House elections after finding tens of thousands of votes since Election Day.
While the county went for Republican John Cox over Democrat Gavin Newsom in the governor’s race, all six House districts were won by the Democratic candidate, points out the Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft.
In 2016, the Republicans won four of those races.
Hoft believes voter fraud could be an explanation for the split-ticket voting.
He points out that 299,931 more Democrats voted for the Democrats in the Orange County congressional races than voted for Newsom for governor.
Hoft cites a reader who argues Cox “ran a horrible campaign and was virtually invisible.”
“I find it hard to believe that voters would split the ticket — voting R for an unknown guy Governor and D for a super liberal congressperson,” the reader wrote. “Just seems like a BIG red flag.”
Among the casualties was Republican Rep. Dana Rohrbacher, who has been in Congress since 1989.
Another Gateway Pundit reader wrote: “I’m a lifelong Californian and want this exposed. I was a Democrat until recently and know many former California Democrats like me who are sick of what’s happening in California. These seats were stolen.”
Rush: Dems ‘do not accept losing’
Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh noted Tuesday that more than half of the Republican House candidates in Orange County were leading on election night.
“Some of those Republicans won by eight points,” he said, “and then counting the undervotes and counting the overvotes and counting the late votes. I mean, we didn’t see what was going on out there because everybody was focused on Florida, the recounts in Florida. But they played games out in Orange County.”
“To show you how odd it is, in Orange County the vote for the Republican candidate for governor of California was 200,000 votes higher than the Democrat candidate got. Yet every Republican member of Congress loses? Some people think this is highly suspicious and are looking into it.”
Limbaugh noted “dubious Department of Motor Vehicle/ Motor Voter registration and ballots were sent out.”
“People that went motor voter to register were also sent a bunch of ballots, and many of them were returned.”
The Democrats, he said, “just never sleep and they never stop.”
“They do not accept losing.”
