Former California GOP Congressman Becomes Maine Resident

Former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher has given up the California sun for “a much more traditional lifestyle” in Maine.

Local news outlets report the 72-year-old former congressman recently moved into a 3-acre home in York with his wife and 13-year-old triplets.

Rohrabacher left the U.S. House of Representatives a year ago after losing his bid for a 16th term representing Orange County, California. He announced that he was moving his family to Maine shortly after.

Rohrabacher was once a speechwriter for President Ronald Reagan and later became a leading leading defender of Russia on Capitol Hill.
