Support Democrat Mai Khanh Tran’s Bid to Unseat California House Rep Ed Royce in 2018

This OTYCD entry originally posted in September 2017.

Support Democrat Mai Khanh Tran in her effort to push longtime Republican incumbent Ed Royce out of his Congressional House seat in California in 2018.

 

Tran is a pediatrician who was among the last of the children airlifted from Vietnam. She worked her way through her Harvard undergraduate degree as a janitor. (Pell grants helped, too.) She went on to Dartmouth-Brown Medical School.

 

She was moved to run after the election when she ministered to a girl suffering from a brain tumor who would lose her insurance coverage if the Affordable Care Act was repealed, as Republicans were threatening to do. She herself is a two-time breast cancer survivor and became a mother at age 46 following eight rounds of IVF treatment.

 

Tran is going up against Republican Ed Royce, a 12-term House rep in California’s 39th District. The area and Orange County in general used to be a Republican stronghold, but it’s been gradually shifting blue. Tran hopes to take advantage of those facts, but she knows she faces a real fight.
