Chris Engels is an extraordinary candidate, a true representative for both California and our nation. He faces an uphill battle in the Primary Election on March 3, 2020 against 3 other candidates, one in particular who does not support our great President and has corrupt party officials including her husband behind her campaign. California’s 48th US Congressional District is in Orange County and was flipped from Red to Blue in 2018 by a 4% margin.

Chris's Rating: 4 Stars (Rating Criteria)

"The focus of governing will be by the people, for the people, with a bipartisan approach, middle ground solutions, and effective legislation." ~ Chris Engels

Chris has a business background and just like President Trump, he knows that we must give and take when dealing with opposing parties and that governing is not a one-way street. On the issues facing our nation and California in particular, Chris has several excellent, comprehensive plans to actually solve problems.

Homelessness is a crisis in California, and he has a proposal to treat mental health & substance abuse in a communal center and create a work center/ living space dedicated to job placement. His plan is compassionate, honest and lawful.  Read More

Healthcare systems must work for all but without punishing middle and upper class. Insurance companies need to compete across state lines. pre-existing conditions must be covered, health benefits to the poor must be combined with rules for accountability and prescription drug prices must be addressed. Read More

Lower business taxes will encourage growth, and we must stop paying for illegal alien care.  Huge companies like Amazon & Facebook should pay federal taxes. Chris will fight for California citizens to keep more of the money that they earn. Read More

The only issue preventing a 5-star rating for Chris is campaign finances. We need him in our US Congress for CA 48 and for the whole country. Chris's positions and strategic thinking line up with President Trump's!!! 


Other CA 48 Candidates:

Brian Burley (R)
Caleb Sturges (R)
Michelle Steel (R) - Does NOT support President Trump but has the corrupt, local GOP behind her.
