My Top 3 Priorities

  • Building an economy that works for all by expanding access to education, creating more job training programs, and supporting small businesses.
  • Investing in clean energy innovation and protecting California's coastlines from new offshore drilling.
  • Guaranteeing affordable, quality healthcare while lowering prescription drug costs and combating the opioid crisis.



Congressman Harley Rouda is a businessman, husband, father, and a patriot – not a politician. Harley loves this country, and ran for Congress because Washington politicians have failed us for too long.

Harley has spent his career working to grow businesses large and small – helping create and support thousands of jobs. Harley's business helped our workers get ahead. Hard work, honesty, fairness and respect. Those values drive him everyday.

Harley and his wife Kaira have worked hard to raise their four children. They've been involved in our community and Orange County charities that help the homeless; protect victims of domestic violence; support veterans, reduce gun violence, advance educational opportunities, strengthen human rights and protect our environment.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Too many politicians only care about themselves and their special interest campaign contributors. That’s why they’ve done nothing to reduce the cost of health care and prescription drugs, fix our crumbling roads and bridges, or make college more affordable.

Harley is refusing to take any money from corporate PACs – because he will only answer to you, not drug companies, the gun lobby, or Wall Street bankers.

In Congress, Harley has been using common sense to find common ground. We can make health care more affordable. We can invest in schools and career training. And we can protect Social Security and Medicare. It all starts by putting country ahead of party, and people ahead of special interests.


Congressman Harley Rouda respectfully asks for your continued support to change Washington, and make Congress work for America and Orange County.
