Harley Rouda may not fit the image of a liberal hero. For decades, he was a registered Republican and in 2016 donated money to presidential hopeful John Kasich. He is a real estate executive opposed to rent control. He regularly appears at campaign events with a white pocket square tucked into his conservative dark suit, even in the sweltering Southern California summer heat.
"He’s a Former Republican Taking on Dana Rohrabacher. Can He Win?" is from the September 07, 2018 U.S. section of The New York Times. It was written by Jennifer Medina and narrated by Mike DelGaudio.
