Dave Min Releases New TV Ad Highlighting Opponent John Moorlach’s Extreme Anti-Science Views and Close Ties to Donald Trump

Irvine, Calif. – Today, UC Irvine Law Professor and former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Enforcement Attorney Dave Min, who is running for State Senate in California’s 37th State Senate District, released a new advertisement, which will be aired on cable television providers and digital outlets throughout Orange County.

The 30 second TV spot, titled “Word of the Day,” focuses on the contrasts between Dave Min and his opponent, incumbent State Senator John Moorlach. Moorlach is widely regarded as one of the most anti-science and pro-Trump elected officials in California, and has taken a variety of extreme positions, including denying climate change, describing vaccinations of children as “totalitarianism,” and ignoring the consensus views of public health professionals when it comes to COVID-19.

By way of contrast, Professor Min is backed by research scientists, doctors, nurses, and public health professionals and has made pro-science policies– particularly in fighting threats like climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic– a centerpiece of his campaign.

The ad includes footage of Min, a former Wall Street prosecutor and economic policy expert, engaging with and learning about the needs of our front line workers.




David Min is a University of California Irvine Law Professor, father of three, and a former economic policy staffer in the United States Senate and for the Center for American Progress. Min began his legal career at the Securities and Exchange Commission to protect the retirement security of seniors, turning down high paying jobs to serve the public interest. He is a leading economic expert  whose research focuses on banking and housing policy.

California State Senate District 37 is located in Orange County and includes the communities of Anaheim, Costa Mesa, Foothill Ranch, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, Newport Beach, Orange, Tustin, and Villa Park and is ranked by political handicappers as “Leans Democratic.” The incumbent career politician John Moorlach, an unwavering Trump supporter and anti-vaccination proponent, was soundly rejected by a majority of voters in the March 3, 2020 primary election.
