Prosecutor Andrew Janz Launches “For All” Campaign in his bid to Unseat Devin Nunes in CA-22

Prosecutor Andrew Janz Launches “For All” Campaign in his bid to Unseat Devin Nunes in CA-22

Fresno, CA (Aug 15th, 2018) – In his fight to represent California’s 22nd Congressional district, Prosecutor Andrew Janz released his “For All” ad campaign with both a 30-second and 60-second version. “For All” highlights Andrew’s upbringing in Visalia, the importance of being raised by immigrant parents, and how a Washington run by people like Devin Nunes has forgotten about the issues critical to the Central Valley: securing water for our farmers, protecting Medicare and social security, and refusing corporate PAC money in order to represent real working families. 

The 60-second video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/D5ywAjMD8zY 

The 30-second video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/jfN2OpkvoSY

Andrew Janz releases, “For All”, on the heels of a recent public poll showing Andrew Janz and Devin Nunes locked in a dead heat. The poll conducted by Tulchin Research is available here. As well as raising over 1.1 million dollars in the month of July alone, Andrew Janz has defied the odds and assembled the strongest challenge that Devin Nunes has faced in nearly two decades.

 

Andrew’s strong message of justice, ethics, and accountability is a refreshing change to the scandal-ridden incumbent, Devin Nunes, who hasn’t held a town hall since 2010 and hasn’t hosted a public event since Andrew jumped in the race in April of 2017. For more information on Andrew, please visit www.andrewjanzforcongress.com.

 

######

 

Andrew Janz currently serves as a Violent Crimes Prosecutor for Fresno County. Raised by hard-working immigrant parents, Andrew grew up in Visalia and is a proud graduate of Redwood High. Andrew returned home to the Central Valley after law school to pursue justice and fight for his community as a Deputy District Attorney in Fresno County. Andrew and his wife Heather live in North Fresno with their two dogs Rachel and Robin.

Nunes and Janz Tied in CA – 22

Nunes and Janz Tied in CA – 22

Fresno, CA (August 14, 2018) – Fresno County Prosecutor Andrew Janz has successfully assembled the strongest challenge that Devin Nunes has faced in his nearly two decades in Congress. A recent poll conducted by Tulchin Research, not on behalf of the campaign, shows Devin Nunes and Andrew Janz in a dead heat, click here for more information about this poll.

“This polling is a direct result of the dedicated volunteers and grassroots supporters we have here on the ground, making this a real fight in CA – 22. But at the end of the day, the only poll that truly matters is the final vote count on November 6th.” – Andrew Janz

For more information about Andrew and his race to bring honesty and ethics back to Congress visit, www.andrewjanzforcongress.com.

###

Andrew Janz is a Deputy District Attorney for Fresno County, where he was assigned to the Violent Crimes Unit before entering the race against 8- term incumbent Rep. Devin Nunes after his infamous midnight Uber trip to the White House last spring. Andrew Janz is 34 years old and resides in Fresno with his wife Heather and their two dogs.

Devin Nunes is the 8 term incumbent for California Congressional District 22 who became a national lightning rod after his midnight trip to the White House in 2017. Most recently Devin Nunes has come under national and local scrutiny for his most recent ethical missteps in spending thousands of campaign dollars on Boston Celtics tickets, wine tours, and Las Vegas getaways.

Xavier Becerra: What matters most to you?

So much of the progress we’ve fought for is under threat. Our values are under attack.

President Trump is sabotaging the Affordable Care Act. He’s dismantling environmental projections. He’s attacking immigrants. He’s gutting workers’ rights.

On these issues and so much more, State Attorneys General are one of our best and last lines of defense against this administration’s backwards policies. And as the nation’s most populous state, California is leading the country in showing the harm done by this administration and fighting back in court.

My team and I work hard to prioritize the fights that matter most to Californians and supporters like you. That’s why I want to take a moment to ask: what issues matter most to you right now?

Supporters like you make it possible for me to serve California as Attorney General and to take on the Trump administration whenever our rights and our values are at risk.

Thank you for being a part of this team,

Xavier

Kamala Harris: Sonia Sotomayor vs. Brett Kavanaugh

I am writing you this morning because the Republicans are trying to ram through Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, setting a hearing date in early September — even though thousands, if not millions, of documents from his career are still hidden from the public.

This means no one, not the American people or even members of the U.S. Senate, will be able to look at his full record before the hearings.

Supreme Court justices have the power to impact the lives of Americans for generations. Our civil rights, our health care, our privacy and more are on the line in this fight — and the American public deserves a fair process and complete accounting of Kavanaugh’s record.

Republican leaders are trying to hide something, and we need to fight back. Are you with me?

Sign my urgent petition demanding the U.S. Senate reject Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. He is a fundamental threat to our justice and equality as Americans — and this rushed confirmation process is alarming and unfair to the public.

SIGN THE PETITION

When Justice Sonia Sotomayor was nominated to the Supreme Court, Republicans had access to her 17-year judicial record, even demanding minutes from board meetings she attended decades ago be made public.

They were.

We should be able to see ALL of Kavanaugh’s records too. Right now, this hearing date in early September is set nearly two months before the National Archives said Kavanaugh’s documents could be reviewed. And we cannot forget that Senate Republican are still blocking the release of records from several years that Kavanaugh worked in the White House, a time in his career he described as “among the most instructive.”

To know how a Supreme Court Justice will make decisions, you look at their past. And they’re denying the American public and Senators like me a chance to do just that. That’s not right — just another reason we must defeat Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

Sign my urgent petition rejecting Kavanaugh’s nomination and denouncing Republican leaders for trying to rush this confirmation progress.

SIGN THE PETITION

We need transparency. What’s there to hide?

Thanks for taking action,

— Kamala

Fiona Ma: Lots going on!

I am proud to have received the endorsement of the UDW Home Care Providers!Home Care providers do some truly amazing work, providing dignity, independence, and quality of life for those they care for. However, these workers who care for our elderly and those with disabilities are paid some of the lowest wages and don’t have adequate paid sick days, retirement security, or access to quality healthcare. I will always be a champion for the men and women who put the lives and well-being of others before their own.

The #MaSquad had a great lunch and discussion with special guest Caitlin D’Aprano, Founder of Will Powered Woman: A 501(c)(3) nonprofit that seeks to prevent intimate partner abuse and support women who have been affected by raising awareness at high schools, universities, and businesses. We need to stand with survivors and erase the stigma associated with abuse, and I am proud of the work Will Powered Woman does.

In 2010, California Women Lead launched a coalition of organizations committed to inspiring, training, and recruiting women to apply for state, board, or commission appointments within the Brown Administration. As immediate Past President of CA Women Lead, I am proud that we achieved our goal of 50 percent female representation among state appointees in 2015. It is the highest percentage of women serving in appointed office in our state’s history.

I had a great time at the California Democratic Party Executive Board meeting in Oakland last month! As a lifelong Democrat, I am proud of what our party stands for, and our continued fight to defend our shared values against the Trump administration’s dangerous agenda.

With fires continuing to burn throughout California, I hope you will join me in supporting our firefighters as they risk their personal health and safety to keep our homes and families safe. As someone who is married to a firefighter, I know firsthand the toll these battles take on all those affected. For information on how you can help Californians impacted by this summer’s devastating fires, please click here.

TJ Cox: ALERT: special interest groups set their sight on CA-21

We have an important update from CA-21:

Last week: TJ Cox for Congress went on the air with our first ad of the election cycle, highlighting TJ’s roots in the community and his priorities in Congress. Then today: we got word that a special interest group — backed by billionaires in Washington — responded to our ad by reserving tens of thousands of dollars in airtime next week right here in CA-21.

It’s clear they’re getting nervous about our race. But right now it’s crucial that we respond immediately because we can’t afford to let TJ’s message get drowned out this early.

We’re still short of our $35,000 target to keep TJ’s ad running throughout the end of the month. Can you rush a donation to help us hit this target and prevent our positive message from getting washed out by Valadao’s special interest backers?

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

Or, donate another amount

Thank you for your support,

Modesto Bee: Eleni “Gets It”

Eleni is a special candidate, and people across this state are starting to take notice

When she launched her campaign last year, she pledged to go to all 58 counties to engage Californians from all walks of life and to listen to their concerns and ideas for moving our state forward.

This summer, she got back on the road to the Central Valley, the Coast, Los Angeles, and the Inland Empire. Eleni is out there asking questions and listening, and according to The Modesto Bee, “her questions showed she gets it.”

Please read and share The Modesto Bee’s endorsement of Eleni Kounalakis to be California’s next Lieutenant Governor

On the heels of President Barack Obama’s endorsement, over the weekend the San Jose Mercury News joined The Modesto Bee in endorsing our campaign!

We’re picking up steam every week, but we still have a lot of work to do before Election Day. Anything you can do to support our campaign is deeply appreciated and helps us get the word out to voters.

Let’s keep going!

Kate Maeder

Campaign Manager

Did you see this important action?

Did you see this critical action opportunity from Kevin? It’s time for bold stances, not politics as usual.

Please add your name to our petition demanding that Senator Feinstein & Democratic Senators do everything in their power to reject Brett Kavanaugh.

Thank you,

Team KDL

Senate Democratic leadership is wasting its time demanding documents from Chuck Grassley instead of ‘No’ votes from its own caucus.

It’s time for Senator Feinstein and Senator Schumer to stop playing polite, country-club politics with a Supreme Court nominee who represents one of the greatest threats to a woman’s right to choose in our lifetime.
Democrats must do everything in their power to oppose this nomination.So I’m calling on Senator Feinstein to leverage her seniority to make sure Senate Democrats are committed to unanimously rejecting Brett Kavanaugh and protecting a woman’s right to choose — add your name if you agree.

This fight won’t be easy.

I won’t sugarcoat the issue and say that we have a clear path to keeping Kavanaugh out of the Supreme Court.

But it is beholden upon us — especially those at the highest levels of power in the U.S. Senate — to do their damnedest to put a stop to Kavanaugh’s appointment.

I’ll do everything in my power, and I hope you will too.

Add your name to our petition today to demand that Senator Feinstein reject Brett Kavanaugh.

In solidarity,
Kevin

Nunes and Janz tied 47-47

 

It’s working! The latest poll has Democrat Andrew Janz tied with Nunes. In just 10 weeks since we launched our campaign against Devin Nunes, his lead has shrunk from 17 points to a tie.

 

According to the poll memo from Tulchin Research, the poll conducted in late July

 

“found a surprisingly competitive contest between Nunes and Janz, with voters sharply divided in their opinions of Congressman Nunes and the race becoming dead even after voters hear more information about both candidates.”

 

 

We are the only group running campaign ads in Devin Nunes’ Fresno congressional district. In fact, no Democrat or Democratic group has ever been able to spend real money in this district talking to voters. But now that voters are seeing ads about Nunes’ terrible record in Congress, they don’t like what they are seeing.

These numbers don’t lie. For the first time in 15 years, we have a clear shot at getting Devin Nunes out of office.

We must continue to hold him accountable for choosing Donald Trump over his CA-22 constituents. Every day counts, and these polling results are proof that our digital, mail, and billboard campaigns are working.

 

Last week’s leaked Nunes tapes prove he is a real threat to our democracy, along with the rest of the Republican leadership. We know that as long as Devin Nunes remains in office and there is a Republican majority in Congress, justice will not take its course. We absolutely cannot let the lawless GOP leadership carry out their plans to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and in turn shut down Mueller’s Russia investigation. Too much is at stake.

Thank you for your support,

Fight Back CA Team

TJ Cox: our first ad is on TV! (watch it here)

 

Big news,
Because of your incredible grassroots support, we just launched our first ad of the election and it’s running across the Central Valley!Will you take a moment to watch, and if you’re able, donate $5 or more to help us stay on the airwaves through the end of the month?

Keep our message on the air ⇒

In the Central Valley, our agricultural economy is our way of life. In Congress, we need new leadership that’s going to advocate for our needs here at home. That means protecting our local economy by getting tough on Trump’s trade war, investing in new technology to create new jobs, and making sure that local families have the health care access we need to live healthy, productive lives.

The stakes are too high and there’s too much work to be done to allow David Valadao to keep rubber stamping a failing Washington agenda. That’s why it’s crucial that we reach as many voters as we can on the air and online so we can flip this seat.

Please take a moment to watch our new ad, then donate to help keep it on the air >>

Thank you,

Team TJ
