OC teacher wins Santa Ana City Council seat with $200 campaign budget
From multimillion-dollar campaigns to a race that was run on a shoe string, how OC kindergarten teacher Angelica Amezcua won a seat on the Santa Ana City Council.
People like Molly Munger spent tens of millions of dollars on their campaigns, but money doesn’t always have to drive politics.
