Katie Porter for Congress

Orange County, Calif., tests Democrats’ hope for a suburban blue wave


IRVINE, Calif. — Katie Porter is no pretender as an Elizabeth Warren acolyte. She named her youngest child Betsy. She studied bankruptcy law under Warren at Harvard Law School, became a law professor, and later co-wrote a book with her. Warren’s son Alex is the treasurer on Porter’s campaign for Congress.

And it turns out Porter shares the Massachusetts senator’s contrarian streak and penchant for a challenge.
