Nunes Iowa Family Farm Exposed

 

Nunes Iowa Family Farm Exposed

Fresno, CA (October 1st, 2018) – Devin Nunes and his relatives secretly moved their family farm from California to Iowa a decade ago and they now likely employ undocumented workers. Extensive reporting from Esquire magazine details that the farm Devin Nunes touts constantly was actually sold in 2006. The reporting exposes the  hypocrisy of the Nunes owned dairy farm that is working hard to protect their brother’s reelection chances and most likely profiting off of undocumented labor. Andrew Janz released the following statement in reaction to that story:

 

“It is disgusting that Devin Nunes has been lying for years about his family farm, pretending he is one of us. Devin has shown once again that he’s left the Valley and the values we hold dear behind just to make a profit. His family moving their farm to Iowa and lying to Californians to protect Devin’s political career is just the latest and most heinous example. We deserve better.”

Andrew Janz was raised in Visalia and is running for Congress against Devin Nunes in California’s 22nd Congressional District. Andrew’s campaigning on water for the valley, more jobs, social security and medicaid, and fighting corruption in Washington. Andrew Janz is 34 years old and resides in Fresno with his wife Heather and their two dogs

Did you catch this note?

Friends,

In a moment, I’m going to ask you to make a donation to TJ Cox’s campaign to flip California’s 21st district. But first, let me explain why it’s so important that we all come together to make sure TJ gets elected.

TJ’s not even in Congress yet and he’s already been delivering positive outcomes for our Central Valley communities.

Thanks to his work as a community development leader, tens of thousands in the Central Valley have access to health care, job training, and better career opportunities. Now, he’s running for Congress to make sure our government does right for working families and to ensure his community has a voice in Congress.

While Cox worked to help build health clinics across the Central Valley, his opponent David Valadao was in Washington voting with Donald Trump 99% of the time — including a vote he took to strip away health care insurance from thousands of hard-working families in this district.

We have a chance to send TJ Cox to Congress with your support. Your contribution of just $10 or more will go a long way in putting TJ on a path to victory

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Thanks for everything,

Kamala Harris
US Senator, California

Hope to see you at the Big Fresno Fair!

Dear Friends,

One of my favorite activities in the Valley is attending the fairs and festivals hosted throughout our cities and counties. These events offer us the opportunity to interact with each other, share our diverse backgrounds, and enjoy quality time with our families. Not to mention the delicious food; nothing is better than a corn dog and a nice cold lemonade on a hot night in the Valley!

This summer, I enjoyed talking to voters, eating good food, and seeing folks from all over our community at the Kings and Tulare County Fairs. I even got the chance to watch a kids dance competition at the Kern County Fair!

I’m excited to go to the Big Fresno Fair which opens this week. I hope you’ll join me at the Fresno County Democratic Party booth at the Big Fresno Fair on the evenings of Friday, October 5th, and Friday, October 12th!

Hope to see you there!

Melissa Hurtado
Candidate, State Senate District 14

Thank you, MICHAEL

Thank you.

 I know that you’ve gotten a lot of emails from me lately, but I want to thank you for the incredible support you’ve given me these last months.

 Thank you for standing with me to safeguard women’s rights, protect hardworking immigrant families, save affordable health care and defend our families and our values against the worst impulses of the Trump administration.

We’re fighting — and winning — but our work is far from over. Contribute $5 to help me keep challenging the Trump administration.

As long as I’m here, I’ll never stop fighting for California.

But my GOP opponent doesn’t feel the same way. On immigrant rights, on health care access, and on so much more, he’d be content to let the Trump administration trample on our communities unchecked. We can’t let that happen.

Pitch in $5 right now to keep me in office this November.

Thank you,

Xavier

With you on my side, I won’t back down, MICHAEL

This is a moment that requires action.

 

Every day, it seems the Trump Administration finds new ways to attack women’s rights, threaten the environment, gut access to affordable health care, and tear families apart.

 

But as Attorney General, I’m not just condemning this administration — I’m fighting back in court and delivering real results to stop President Trump’s worst policies.

Contribute $5 now to help me contribute standing up to President Trump.

As long as I’m in office, I’ll keep fighting for our families, our values, and the GOP knows that.

 

They’re marshalling every resource they can to defeat me in November, but with you on my side, I won’t back down.

 

Thank you so much for standing with me,
