Congresswoman Katie Porter 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 Trump supporter John Moorlach, announced his endorsement by United States Congressional Representative Katie Porter, who represents California’s 45th Congressional District in the heart of Orange County. CA45 composes close to 60% of Senate District 37, sharing the communities of Irvine, Anaheim, Orange, Lake Forest, and Tustin. Congressmember Porter, a colleague of Prof. Min and his wife Jane Stoever at UC Irvine, issued the following remarks:
“I have known Dave Min and his wife Jane for over a decade, and I know Dave will be an incredible champion for women’s rights in the State Senate. Jane of course is well known for her research and advocacy on behalf of survivors of domestic violence. And I have seen how Dave has been a consistent and strong voice for women, fighting for stronger protections in the workplace against harassment and intimidation, equal pay for equal work, and for women’s autonomy in their healthcare and reproductive rights decisions. Women can count on Dave Min to be a strong and empathetic ally for women’s equality in the State Senate.”
– Congresswoman Katie Porter
“I am truly humbled by Congresswoman Porter’s endorsement and thankful for her tireless efforts on behalf of Orange County families,” said Min. “In a short period of time, Rep. Porter has made a name for herself by consistently fighting for what is right over what is easy. I hope to follow her great example of hard work and integrity, and I look forward to collaborating with her as a partner in Sacramento.”
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.
