loretta, sanchez, california, house, challengeRepublican state Assemblyman Van Tran, who has years of experience in local government and strong ties with the region's up and coming Vietnamese American community, is giving Sanchez her first serious challenge in years.

"That seat has been on the radar screen for Republicans for a long time, but [until now] they've not really had a substantive candidate," said Chip Hanlon, a founder of Red County, a conservative blog about Orange County politics. Republican leaders and campaign donors now "believe this is a winnable fight," Hanlon said.
