*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***

California Small Business Association endorses Dave Jones for Attorney General

Sacramento, CA – The California Small Business Association (CSBA) this week officially endorsed Dave Jones for Attorney General. CSBA has 203,000 members statewide and advocates successfully for small businesses at the state and national level.

In their formal endorsement letter to Insurance Commissioner and Candidate for Attorney General Dave Jones , CSBA President Betty Jo Toccoli wrote, “You have demonstrated your commitment and leadership to serving the small business community in this great state of California. Your concern and support of the small business community is recorded and your commitment to partnering with us in the issues important to small business is inspiring. We pledge to be a resource to you of proactive small business ideas and strategies.”

“Small businesses are the backbone of California’s economy,” said Dave Jones, candidate for Attorney General. “I’m truly honored to have the endorsement of the California Small Business Association, which represents and fights for small businesses who make California one of the largest economies in the world. I am proud of my track record of supporting small business owners, who provide jobs and a livelihood for millions throughout California.”

End the backlog

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

It took decades to catch the man now suspected of being the Golden State Killer, and it finally happened through DNA testing.

There are currently more than 13,000 untested rape kits across California today, so how many more decades will it take to identify the perpetrators involved in those cases; and how many more Californians will they attack?

That’s why I’m calling on the California State Legislature to immediately provide funding to end the backlog of untested rape kits in the State of California. Will you join me by adding your name now?

Not only do these untested rape kits pose a public safety risk, but it’s unconscionable that after bravely stepping forward to share their stories, survivors of sexual assault are forced to navigate the criminal justice system, and aren’t given the basic right to have their rape kits immediately tested.

At just $400 to $1,000 each, the small price we pay for testing a rape kit not only can provide crucial evidence to identify and prosecute violent criminals, but it can also provide justice for thousands of women across California.

As state treasurer, I can tell you — without hesitation — that California has the resources to immediately end the backlog, get violent criminals off the streets, and finally give survivors and the families of victims the justice they deserve.

Now we need to show we have the political will to get it done.

And if the backlog isn’t cleared by the time I become your next governor, I will push for immediate testing on day one. But Californians shouldn’t have to wait.

Join me in telling the California State Legislature: “End the backlog!” Add your name now.

What’s your take on all this?

*** TJ Cox has been endorsed for CD-21 by the CDP ***

TJ Cox for Congress

Put aside all of Trump’s antics — the divisive language, the unhinged tweets, and the barrage of scandals, and look at what he’s actually done with David Valadao’s help in Congress:

Passed his tax scam that disproportionately hurts Californians — especially younger people looking to buy a home.
 Passed the AHCA in the House which could’ve dropped millions of Americans from their health care coverage — hundreds of thousands of whom live right here in the Central Valley.
Fought to end DACA and launched reckless and cruel deportation raids throughout our communities.

Here’s my take: The Republican Party is the party of Trump now, and they can’t be trusted to hold power in Congress — especially with so-called “moderates” like David Valadao voting with Trump 98.5% of the time.

But I want to hear from 5,000 California Democrats like you by midnight tonight: Will you take our short survey and let us know where you stand?

Can Republicans in Congress be trusted to hold Trump accountable?

YES >>

NO >>

Thank you,

TJ Cox

The challenge is on

*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***

Our national clean car standards — essential to curbing toxic air pollution — are under attack.

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is refusing to do his job to enforce these standards our environment depends on. In California, we’re not going to stand for this.

That’s why I’m fighting now in court, leading a coalition of 17 states, to sue Pruitt.

But, I need your help.

The EPA’s trying to fool Americans into thinking these standards aren’t achievable. The facts show otherwise.

The clean car standards we’re fighting to keep reduce carbon pollution equivalent to 134 coal power plants burning for one year. These standards are critical to protecting the air our children breathe, the cost of cars and our fight against climate change.

Will you chip in $5, so we can win this battle for our California families?

The EPA’s trying to curtail the environmental progress we’ve made. But in California, this marks our 10th lawsuit against the EPA, and we haven’t lost one fight.

With your help, we can achieve yet another win for our children — and planet!

Can I count on your support?

 

Thank You,

Xavier

Important Differences in AG Candidates

*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***

 

On June 5, voters will help determine who becomes the state’s next Attorney General, California’s top law enforcement official.

Democratic voters have two distinct choices. Dave Jones or Xavier Becerra.

  • Voters can choose the candidate whose campaign has been funded by oil, tobacco and insurance companies, or they can choose Dave Jones who refuses those contributions.
  • Voters can choose the candidate who supports the death penalty, or they can choose Dave Jones who opposes the death penalty and will fight for criminal justice reform for our state.
  • Voters can choose the candidate who has not practiced law 24 of the last 25 years, or they can choose Dave Jones who has saved consumers over $3 billion as California’s insurance commissioner.

The choice is clear. The best candidate for Attorney General is Dave Jones.

Watch our newest ad which explains the differences! And don’t forget to share this on social media and forward this email to at least five friends!

John Cox smells blood

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

Delaine Eastin for Governor 2018

In recent years, we have begun to take for granted the fact that California is a blue state. But if you scratch the surface, Republicans have actually held the governorship for 23 of the past 34 years. Recent polling shows Republican John Cox gaining ground. Fox News Suggests John Cox Could Be California’s Next Governor.

Now, John Cox has launched an all-out assault on two of our male democratic opponents. Cox Brings Up Affairs of Male Democratic Opponents Newsom and Villaraigosa affairs coming to TV ads in California.

Right now, California is leading the resistance to Trump. But Cox is hitting hard on the unfortunate reality that California is failing too many of our own residents on a daily basis. And Cox is pointing out that if one of these two candidates is in the runoff, a republican could pull it off.

Voters are looking for a change, and even though one candidate has been running for governor for over TEN years, and spent MILLIONS of dollars, he has never polled above 30%.    

Delaine Eastin is the real change voters are looking for. In the past few weeks, nearly 500,000 people have viewed our first video. Over 100,000 have now viewed our second video about Delaine’s willingness to stand up to pharmaceutical companies. We have over 1,000 volunteers making calls and texting voters. 

We aren’t interested in tearing down our opponents, we are interested in elevating Delaine’s clear and honest message about how she will lead us forward. Can you donate today, so we can hit 1,000,000 views on Delaine’s videos by the end of the week?

Making some big decisions

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

This week, my team and I are going to make some big decisions about our plans for these last days before the primary.

I’m hoping you’ll chip in now so we can not only discuss how to continue spreading our message loudly and clearly across California, but actually expand our outreach even farther.

Will you chip in whatever you can to help us reach our goal before tonight’s end-of-month deadline?

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in $5 »

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in $25 »

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in $50 »

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in another amount »

As the Los Angeles Times said last week, “for most Californians the race for governor is just starting.”

If we can reach them, we have an amazing opportunity to surge forward in the primary. Our new TV ad is already making a difference.

But I need your help to reach our goal tonight before we roll out our plan for May.

Chip in now, before tonight’s deadline, and make sure we have the resources to keep fighting for a brighter vision for California.

Thank you for making this campaign possible,

John
