Orange County Congressman Mike Levin 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 climate change skeptic John Moorlach, announced his endorsement by United States Congressional Representative Mike Levin, who represents California’s 49th Congressional District in South Orange County and Northern San Diego County and is a member of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.
“Now more than ever, we need elected leaders who follow science, data, and common sense,” said Levin. “Dave will work to address Climate Change, increase healthcare access and affordability, and he understands the critical importance of vaccines. Dave will be a trusted partner in Sacramento in the fight for economic opportunity for all of Orange County, and I’m proud to endorse him.
Levin’s endorsement comes as Dave consolidates support in Orange County for his run against Trump supporter John Moorlach.
“I’m honored to have the support of Congressmember Levin, who has been a staunch protector of our climate,” said Min. “I look forward to continuing working with him to ensure California continues to lead the way in taking care of our veterans, creating greater economic opportunity, and combating climate change 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, Lake Forest, 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.
