Orange County, California
Orange County, traditionally considered by liberals to be somewhat conservative compared to all other urban locations in the left-wing Blue state California, is the third most populous county in California. It was created in 1889 and was given the name for its extensive orange groves.
As an urban area, Orange County has been shifting increasingly liberal. In 2016, the county voted for a Democrat for president for the first time since 1936, and in 2018, the county became entirely represented in Congress by Democrats.
