We can be more than just anti-Trump

*** No candidate for Governor has been endorsed by the CDP ***

As former COO of the California Department of Justice, I’m proud of the times that we went up against the Trump administration, defending our values, and winning.

But after a year on the frontlines of the resistance, I knew that we could be doing more. California is special, and we can actually lead the nation by example.

I’m running because I know that we can be more than just anti-Trump…

We need to be pro-California.

Amanda Renteria is running for Governor in California — because it’s time for new voices who can change the culture of politics. Amanda recently stepped down as Chief of Operations for California’s Department of Justice. She is the daughter of former farmworkers in the Central Valley who went on to attend Stanford and Harvard. Since beginning her career in public service nearly two decades ago, she has served as a high school teacher, a budget analyst in one of California’s largest cities, and the first Latina Chief of Staff in history of the United States Senate. It’s time to inspire a new generation of leaders and build a California ready for the future. Click here to donate if you agree.

What my opponents get wrong

*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***

I could use your help.

My GOP opponents have taken to Twitter and now California’s airwaves attacking me for standing up to Donald Trump. Yesterday one called our lawsuits “frivolous.”

As I see it though there’s nothing frivolous about fighting to defend our families from harmful policy that risks our health and wellbeing.

We’re fighting to protect:

  • The air we breathe and the water we drink
  • Dreamers who lawfully applied to live and work in the U.S.
  • Transgender military members who risk their lives to keep us safe
  • A free and open Internet
  • Our college students, seniors and workers who have been cheated
  • Access to affordable healthcare that can save lives

It’s pretty simple: In California, we often stand to lose more than Americans in any other state by Trump’s reckless action.

California is 40 million people strong, and the fifth largest economy in the world.

Will you give $5 to support these fights underway for our families?

With Republicans running Washington, the courts are increasingly becoming our best hope for change.

And in California, we’re not just fighting — we’re winning. We’ve had at least 14 legal victories in the past year.

Can I count on you to stand with me?


Thanks for anything you can contribute today.

Check out my education bills that passed this week

*** Tony Thurmond has been endorsed for State Superintendent of Public Instruction by the CDP ***

Dear Friend,

With 6 days to go until Election Day, you have been hearing a lot about my campaign for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. (Have you taken the time to share our ad on Facebook yet?)

But not even an election can slow our progress passing legislation that our kids in California need today. I’m excited to report that three of my education bills passed the Assembly this week:

  • My bill AB 2168 helps our schools retain high-quality special education teachers
  • My bill AB 2514 expands dual language immersion programs to support English language learners
  • My bill AB 2160 ensures the playground attendants who keep our students safe actually have rights and benefits

And there’s more work left to be done. My bills to tax private prisons to fund preschool and to expand STEM education, among others, will head to the Assembly floor soon. By investing in educators and increasing funding for programs, we’re fighting to close the achievement gap for special education, bilingual, and minority students.

Ultimately, your support for my campaign will allow me to do even more for public education as State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Will you make a contribution today to help me do more for our kids?

I’m running to fully fund our schools, keep students safe, encourage creativity and critical thinking in the classroom, and prepare all of our students for the jobs of tomorrow. You can read my policy plan at

Thank you,

Tony Thurmond
