Katie Porter won the Orange County House seat in 2018, flipping a Republican district blue.  Now, the self-described “mini-van driving mom” is in a tight race for the U.S. Senate seat once held by Dianne Feinstein. Marisa and Scott chat with Congresswoman Porter about her Iowa roots, consumer advocacy and the key differences between herself and fellow Democrats Adam Schiff and Barbara Lee.
