Orange County Congressman Harley Rouda Endorses Dave Min For State Senate
Orange County, Calif. — TODAY, UC Irvine Law Professor Dave Min, who is running in California’s State Senate District 37 against anti-vaccination conspiracy theorist John Moorlach announced his endorsement by United States Congressional Representative Harley Rouda, who represents California’s 48th Congressional District in the heart of Orange County. CA48 composes close to 40% of Senate District 37, sharing the communities of Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, and Newport Beach.
“During these turbulent times, the need for pragmatic, thoughtful leadership is more clear than ever,” said Rouda. “Dave Min has spent his career working to address housing affordability, income inequality and health care disparity for Orange County families. I especially appreciate Dave’s commitment to ensuring prescription drug affordability and that our Seniors can retire with dignity. I look forward to working with Dave Min to bring a common sense approach to government on behalf of our constituents.”
Rouda’s endorsement comes in the same week fellow Orange County Congressmember Katie Porter of the neighboring 45th District endorsed Min.
“I’m honored to be endorsed by Congressman Rouda, who has been a strong advocate for Orange County families in Congress” said Min. “I look forward to continue working with him to ensure California continues to lead the way in disaster response, economic fairness, and health care access during these challenging times.”
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 expert 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, Newport Beach, Orange, Tustin, and Villa Park and is ranked by political handicappers as a “toss up.” 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.
