“Now more than ever, we need California to provide thoughtful progressive leadership to the country as we face the immoral and corrupt policies of the Trump Administration.

“For too long, career politicians have used political offices as step ladders to advance their own careers, and not advance the priorities of voters. Until we decide as a party to promote new voices from within our community, our promise of true representative government will ring hollow in Washington D.C. and Sacramento. That’s why I’m throwing my full support behind Dave Min for California State Senate District 37. Dave represents exactly the kind of new leadership that I’ve been calling for ever since I announced my candidacy for Congress- leadership that reflects the diversity of Southern California, diversity in life experience, and diversity in expertise. He will put his unique economic policy background to work to ensure our state remains a great place to live, work, and raise a family. He’s the partner I need working with me in Sacramento, and I am proud to endorse him.”
