IRVINE, CA — A new poll in CA 45 shows that Rep. Mimi Walters holds a 4-point lead over challenger Katie Porter, and has reached the crucial 50% support mark with likely voters.

Mimi Walters leads Katie Porter 50-46 on the uninformed ballot question.

“Voters are now focusing on the race and learning how liberal and extreme Katie Porter’s positions are. The liberal platform on taxes and government spending make her the wrong candidate for the 45th District,” said Mimi Walters’ campaign consultant Dave Gilliard. “Mimi Walters’ record as a tax-fighter and government reformer who shares the values of the district and who gets things done is resonating with voters.”
