Endorsement Alert: La Opinion

Friend

La Opinión–the largest Spanish-language newspaper in the United States and second-most read newspaper in Los Angeles–announced their endorsement of my campaign. 

In their endorsement, they wrote Como trabajador social Thurmond educó a jóvenes en cárceles juveniles, niños en hogares de adopción, chicos con problemas de desarrollo, alumnos que pasan los días fuera de la escuela. En su mayoría, latinos y afroamericanos. Tony Thurmond representará los intereses de todas las comunidades al margen de su estado migratorio.”

Here’s what they’re saying: between the two candidates Tony has been the one who has dedicated his entire career to California’s most vulnerable children–children in youth detention centers, foster children, and coming down tough on truancy laws–all which primarily impact Latino and African-American children.

They feel that Tony is best equipped to lead Los Angeles school children who make up the second largest district in the nation.

La Opinión joins the Los Angeles Times and the Sacramento Bee as major newspapers that have endorsed his campaign. 

Tony can only execute these newspaper’s shared vision for California’s students if he’s elected. The billionaires have now topped $13 million dollars in television ads against Tony’s campaign. We need your support. Join La Opinión in electing Tony Thurmond for State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Trump’s border wall

TJ Cox for Congress

 

You may have heard the news that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy recently introduced legislation to build Trump’s border wall. The plan would allocate up to $23.4 million for the project.

 

We all know what this is about, Michael. McCarthy and his friends in DC are trying to drum up last-minute support from their Republican base ahead of the November election.

 

It’s sad, but this is how policy works under Trump and his cronies — particularly on immigration. They engage in fear-mongering in an attempt to win the day rather than taking a real crack at solving the issue. It’s what folks are sick of seeing from Washington, and it’s exactly this type of cold-blooded, political crap that brought me into this race in the first place.

 

Wednesday at midnight marks our FINAL FEC fundraising deadline before Election Day. We’re a little fed up, so we’re working harder than usual to raise the additional $50,000 we need before the deadline to stay on track and win this seat. Unlike Trump’s puppet David Valadao, I’m depending on this grassroots network of supporters to flip California’s 21st district.

 

 

 

Thank you,

 

TJ Cox

Immigrant children are being moved to a tent city in Texas

 

We all watched in horror this summer as the Trump Administration ripped migrant children from their parents’ arms and detained them in cages.

 

We quickly sued the Trump Administration to stop the administration’s inhumane zero tolerance policy, but while administration officials backed off from separating families, they’re still indefinitely detaining more than 13,000 children.

 

Now, we’re seeing new reports that these children are being woken in the middle of the night, herded onto buses and moved to a tent city in the middle of the West Texas desert.

I’m still fighting for these children in court and I need your help. Contribute $5 to help me win in November and continue our lawsuit against President Trump’s zero tolerance policy.

It’s bad enough that we’re keeping children detained indefinitely in shelters — not to mention, it’s unconstitutional. But now, children are being moved to an unregulated facility with no school, limited access to legal help and no clear timeline for their release.

 

Right now, our legal work is focused on forcing the federal government to share all the details of its zero tolerance policy and treatment of these children. We have a long fight ahead of us to stop these cruel policies for good.

As long as I’m here, I will continue to fight for these immigrant children, but first I have to win in November. Contribute $5 to our campaign now.

Thank you,

CAKE Joins Janz in Fresno to Encourage All Valley Residents to “Vote Like Hell”

 

CAKE Joins Janz in Fresno to Encourage All Valley Residents to “Vote Like Hell”

Fresno, CA (October 15th, 2018) – Andrew Janz’s campaign for California’s 22nd Congressional District and CAKE will be rallying Fresno area voters on November 2nd at the Crest Theatre. For more information about the concert and how to attend, visit https://www.votelikehell.org/events.

 

“This election is one of the most important elections of a generation. I’m excited to join CAKE and help rock the vote here in Fresno. Valley residents deserve to be treated like the rockstars that they are, and I know it’s going to be a great night.” said Andrew Janz.

 

“CAKE is proud to be able to help out in getting real leadership for the valley, and for America. It’s a critical time for the world, and it’s more important than ever to find leaders capable of putting country above self-interest. Real greatness comes from community, cooperation and ethical leadership.” said John McCrea, lead singer of CAKE.

 

###

CAKE originally formed as a somewhat antagonistic response to the rock bloat of grunge. The band’s defiant DIY approach and lucid yet ever-inventive music has made them a nation-state unto themselves, with no obvious peers, belonging to no particular school.  In addition to writing, arranging, producing, and performing their own music, they have taught themselves to engineer their recording projects in their own Sacramento based solar-powered studio, which actually generates more power than is needed to run the studio, causing the building’s electrical meter to run in reverse. CAKE’s most recent album, SHOWROOM OF COMPASSION, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart and was touted for its “deadpan brilliance” by The New Yorker. The band is currently working on their ninth album which is due for release later this year.  

 

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, protecting 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.

Still need support from Democrats in 93705

We still have some ground to make up to make sure our voter turnout program

TJ Cox for Congress


Here’s what’s happening on the ground in CA-21.

Ballots just hit mailboxes, so our grassroots volunteers are knocking on doors and calling voters to lock in crucial early votes to elect TJ Cox and finally flip CA-21. Meanwhile, David Valadao and the National GOP are doing everything they can to make sure Democrats STAY HOME. That’s why they’re on the air with deceptive smears.

We still have some ground to make up to make sure our voter turnout program is fully funded so we can reach each one of TJ’s supporters and win this race. Can you send a donation to TJ Cox’s campaign today? 14 donations from 93705 should do the trick.

 

CA-21 Democratic Turnout Fund
Target: $30,000 (Sunday midnight)
Raised so far: $21,229

Suggested donation from evansm@usa.net: $15 or more >>

One thing money can’t buy

We haven’t met yet, but I’m the field director here in California’s 21st district. It’s my job to make sure every Democrat and supporter of TJ’s that we’ve identified mails in their ballot or gets to

TJ Cox for Congress

 

We haven’t met yet, but I’m the field director here in California’s 21st District. It’s my job to make sure every Democrat and supporter of TJ’s that we’ve identified mails in their ballot or gets to the polls so we can win this thing.

 

It’s no easy task, especially since the Republican plan is to suppress as many Democratic-leaning votes by flooding the airwaves with attack ads. The good news? Our field program is designed to defeat this strategy using the one advantage TJ has that money can’t buy: Grassroots energy and volunteers.

 

 

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

As you read this, Democrats are recruiting, training, and deploying hundreds of volunteers to every corner of this district — from Hanford to Delano and down to Arvin.

 

We’re using the best field tactics and data to out-work Valadao’s big money machine. IF all goes well, our volunteers will mobilize thousands of Democrats to get to the polls. That’s where you come in.

 

 

Thanks for everything,

 

Norberto Gonzalez

Field Director
