Tragic weather events and climate change on your mind lately?

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


Jeff Bleich for Lieutenant Governor 2018 FPPC # 1396288

Mine too. As our next Lt. Governor, I would serve in pivotal roles to protect our environment across California.

Deadly fires, extreme droughts followed by extreme rains, and rising sea levels are not normal. Despite legislative action, too many people and businesses in California continue to be at risk because we’re not doing enough to stop damaging our environment.
Throughout my career, I’ve worked on environmental issues, and succeeded at bringing coalitions together to solve pressing issues.

Now, I’m starting to build the team that will help California continue leading on reversing climate change with an endorsement today from environmental champion State Senator Henry Stern.

Help us continue building our climate resiliency team today by sharing Henry’s endorsement video with your social media friends.

Thanks for affirming your commitment to reversing climate change and strengthening our campaign.

This lady is fire

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

Yesterday was another debate with all four candidates, moderated by SF Chronicle’s John Diaz and held in San Francisco.You can watch the debate here.

What was the response? Enthusiastic to say the least. These were some tweets from those watching:

Doug Sovern, of KCBS News: @DelaineEastin, who’s gotten the least attention in the #CAGov race, is standing out today, and not just because she’s the only woman. She’s feisty, passionate & knowledgeable.

Scott Schafer of KQED tweeted: At Dem guv candidates debate, @DelaineEastin is showing she has something to add to this campaign. Clear, folksy & funny. Oh, and a woman.

Jose Lara: This lady is fire.

The promise I just made

Kamala Harris

Just a few moments ago I made a promise that I would not support any year-end spending bill if it does not include a solution for the more than 700,000 recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

We made a promise to these young people: that if you give us your information and an opportunity to vet your background, you could live here.

It’s as simple as that — but Trump and Republican leaders in Washington are breaking that promise by playing politics with their lives. We need these young people focused on what truly matters: studying, serving in our military, and innovating.

Sign my petition to tell Congress we should provide security and peace of mind for the 700,000 DACA recipients who fear they will be deported from the only country they’ve ever known.

We have to think about the kind of message it sends when we have hundreds of thousands of young people who are terrified because Congress hasn’t done its job.

Every day in the life of these kids that we fail to do right by them is a day our country is failing an important moral test. Let’s do the right thing.

Thanks for all you do.

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California

Why Kamala Harris and John Burton are supporting my campaign for Lt. Gov.

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


I’m running for Lt. Governor because California must continue to lead the way for a better, stronger future for everyone. As a lifelong Democratic activist who has always supported liberal and progressive candidates and causes, I’m proud that our campaign is continuing to draw strong support from Democratic leaders across the state.

My first job after business school was with the California Democratic Party in 1992 when we elected two women to the U.S. Senate and turned California blue. I would be immensely proud to earn your endorsement and the support of the CDP at the convention in February.

In case you missed it, I want to share who has joined Team Eleni so far:


U.S. Senator Kamala Harris:  Ambassador Eleni Kounalakis has dedicated her life to the fight for California values. She is a powerful advocate for immigrants, economic innovation and job creation, and providing all with access to quality and affordable health care. Eleni has the vision and conviction necessary to boldly and wisely lead California into the future. I am proud to support Eleni for Lt. Governor.”

Former CA Democratic Party Chair John Burton:  “As Lieutenant Governor, Eleni will work to lower the cost of housing, make higher education more affordable, and defend California’s values of equality and diversity. Eleni Kounalakis has the dedication and vision necessary to fight for all Californians and lead the way to a better and stronger California.” 


U.S. Senator Kamala Harris and John Burton join Phil Angelides, former CA Democratic Party Chair and State Treasurer; Christine Pelosi, Chair, CDP Women’s Caucus; Hene Kelly, Chair, CDP Disability Caucus; Norma Alcala, Vice Chair, CDP Chicano Latino Caucus; Susan Rowe, Chief Vice Chair, CDP Rural Caucus; Jenita Johnson Rodriguez, Vice Chair, Rural Caucus; Amy Champ, Regional Director, Region 4; and so many activists and leaders up and down the state.

As Lt. Governor, I will fight hard to advance our economy to make sure it works for everyone, create more affordable homes so families can stay in California, lower the cost of higher education, and protect our values and diversity.

I believe the key to a better future is ensuring our Democratic Party is united and stronger than ever. Please reach out to me any time at, so we can share our ideas for strengthening California’s future.



P.S. I hope you will join Kamala Harris and John Burton and add your name to our growing endorsement list. I look forward to meeting you on the campaign trail!
