The Huntington Beach Independent ^ | July 2, 2013 | Bradley Zint

State Sen. Mimi Walters announced Tuesday that she plans to run for the 45th Congressional District seat retiring U.S. Rep. John Campbell (R-Irvine) will vacate next year.

Walters, a Republican, currently represents the 37th District in the California Senate. The district includes Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Irvine and portions of Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach.

"John Campbell has served the people of Orange County, California and the United States with distinction and with a commitment to a firm set of principles," Walters said in a prepared statement. "He will leave behind some big shoes to fill. In Congress, I will continue to fight for the fiscal responsibility, less intrusive government and property rights, and look forward to representing our special part of Orange County in the nation's capital."

The 45th Congressional District includes Irvine, Tustin, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo and portions of Anaheim and Orange.

Supervisor John Moorlach, a Republican who represents District 2 on the five-member Orange County Board of Supervisors, also said Tuesday that he is exploring running for the congressional seat — he recently ruled out a bid to run for governor against incumbent Jerry Brown — and has received positive feedback so far.
