On a recent Saturday morning, a field organizer and volunteer rang doorbells and left door hangers in Walters' 45th Congressional District on a neatly trimmed street in the Orange County suburb of Tustin.
"Will you be supporting Congresswoman Mimi Walters in the midterm election?" one of them asked Mike Zapata when he opened the door.
"I think so," Zapata, a 45-year-old independent, said. He told the campaigners that lower taxes, jobs and national security were top-of-mind issues for him."
