In one week

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

Delaine Eastin for Governor 2018

The most important filing period of my campaign ends in just seven days. That’s why I need you to step up today with your biggest contribution yet. 

The campaign is really taking off. In just the past week I earned endorsements from the largest San Francisco Democratic Club — the Harvey Milk LGBT Club, as well as the San Diego Progressive Democratic Club, the East Bay Women’s Political Alliance, FUN (Fremont-Union City-Newark) Progressives, San Francisco’s Richmond Democratic Club and Santa Cruz County for Bernie Sanders. Stay tuned for one more major announcement this week.

The race for second place is wide open and nearly a statistical tie among the candidates. I’m the only one who is not accepting corporate money, and the one with the biggest opportunity for growth. All I need is financial resources to get my message out there.

So…are you in? Please give what you can today. I need you to help me be successful in the next reporting period. The competition knows if I’m in the top two, we win. Help us make that a reality with a contribution here.

Another win for Election Security

*** Alex Padilla has been endorsed for Secretary of State by the CDP ***

Alex Padilla

In January, I proudly shared with you the news that Trump disbanded his sham voter fraud commission. It was an example of the results we can achieve when we stand united and resist.

I’m happy to report another win — a solid win for election security — and it wouldn’t have been possible without our unity and resistance.

On Friday, Trump signed the $3.1 billion omnibus spending bill, despite his veto threats.

We successfully pressed Congress to include $380 million in Help America Vote Act (HAVA) funds in the bill, overcoming Trump’s continued denial of Russian interference in the 2016 elections. These HAVA funds will now be distributed to states to fund the replacement and upgrading of aging voting systems.

While the need is greater than the amount approved last week, this investment is helpful and timely as states are preparing for the 2018 elections. And it wouldn’t have been possible without you. Our resistance is working.

But our work isn’t done. And I still need your help.

Please support my reelection campaign so I can continue to do everything in my power to defend our elections against cyber threats and to defend our right to vote.

Thank you for standing with me to ensure that we defend our democracy.


Alex Padilla

California Secretary of State
