Vice President Joe Biden Joins Senator Kamala Harris In Backing UCI Law Professor Min for State Senate
ORANGE COUNTY, CA — Today, UC Irvine Law Professor Dave Min, who is running in California’s State Senate District 37 against climate change denier John Moorlach, received the endorsement of former Vice President and Democratic nominee for President Joe Biden.
“I am honored and humbled to have the support of Vice President Joe Biden, a proven leader who has built a unifying coalition of Americans—including Democrats, Independents, and Republicans—to build our country back better and reclaim the soul of America. ” Dave Min said. “This endorsement truly highlights what is at stake in this election. From the White House to the CA State Senate, we need leaders who will protect and expand access to health care, who will listen to scientists and public health officials to combat COVID-19, and who will fight for our families and small businesses as they face a historically severe economic downturn. I am proud to receive the Vice President’s endorsement, and I look forward to working with him to address the many challenges our nation and state are facing.”
Before serving as the 47th Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden was Delaware’s U.S. Senator, championing working-class and low-income families. During his time in office, Joe Biden has led the charge to expand affordable health care access for millions of Americans, steer the country out of an economic crisis, and combat the gun violence epidemic.
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.
