Voters slowly made their way into the voting booths for the 2012 presidential election at Grace Church Of Orange in Orange, Calif., Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
The GOP has long held the lion’s share of registered voters in Orange County, so it’s no surprise that voters there favored Mitt Romney for President. But disappointment came early in the evening as Fox News called Ohio for Obama shortly after 8:00 Tuesday night. Now the O.C. GOP is licking its wounds and eyeing the future.
On the local front, there were a number of key issues and races for Orange County voters on this year’s ballot including the highly contested Anaheim City Council race and the Santa Ana Mayor’s race. We’ll check in with one of our OC roundtable journalists to get the latest results.
