The 48th congressional district in Orange County is seeing a tight race between businessman Harley Rouda and stem cell scientist Hans Keirstead, who are vying to become the Democratic challenger in the November election against incumbent Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa).  

Votes are still being counted from the June 5 primary. The Orange County Registrar of Voters is planning to complete and certify the results by Monday and present them to the Board of Supervisors by Tuesday. 

We look at how close that race is. 

With guest host Libby Denkmann.
