On your side

On your side

Why I’m running

 

 

 

My parents came to this country from Mexico propelled by a dream without documents, determined to create a better life. Now, as your Insurance Commissioner, I’m determined to keep fighting to make a better life for nearly 40 million Californians.

 

That’s why I’m excited to share with you today that I’m officially running for re-election for California Insurance Commissioner.

 

Can you help us reach our campaign launch goal? Contribute $5 today! 

 

I’m seeking re-election because this fight is far from over. I’m on your side as we continue to implement solutions to the climate crisis, expand health care to every Californian, and address the inequities we see across our state.

 

Since taking office, I’ve saved consumers over $1.75 billion dollars — pushing the insurance industry to prioritize people over profit. I’ve fought to defend fire survivors when the industry tried to flee from their commitments — protecting more than 2 million policyholders from nonrenewal following disaster. And I’ve continued to strengthen our clinics and public health system, fighting to lower costs for all — while still pushing for the creation of a single-payer health care system that covers every Californian.

 

I’m committed to holding the insurance industry accountable to consumers because amid crisis, this work has never been more important. But we can only do this together. That’s why I’m asking:

 

Can you chip in $5 today? I’m officially running for re-election as California Insurance Commissioner and I need your help to hit the ground running! 

 

I’m ready for the work ahead — and I’m so honored to have you on my side.

 

¡Vamos!

Preliminary election results

April for Controller

I want to share an exciting campaign update with you: preliminary voting results are in — and the numbers are promising. We will have enough votes to win this race! 

The results won’t be certified until next week when we gather for convention, but according to initial tallies of online and phone votes just released, we’ve secured over 70% of votes so far, with about 350 ballots left to be counted.

This is exciting news — and I look forward to the vote counting and certification process continuing. 

After hundreds of hours of campaigning, Zooms, texts, phone calls, forums, town halls, and more, I’ve never been more energized about the work ahead:

I’m ready to work with all members of CDP to harness our collective power to help make the dream of a California for ALL a reality.

I’m ready to work with all members of CDP to support building a new generation of leaders and ensure that the party is an actively anti-racist organization.

I’m ready to work with all members of CDP to create a stronger party. 

Let’s do this! I’m looking forward to seeing all of you in a few days at convention. Thank you, Democrats.

Onward together,

April

Today the California Democratic Party announced the results of the Statewide Officer races, and I’m honored to have been elected as a Vice Chair. 

When I first decided to run, I was excited to speak with Democrats from every county. But what blew me away was just how tenacious and powerful our state’s organizers are. At every single meeting I attended, there were organizers who were fighting for their communities, and it moved me in a way that was unexpected.

Whether you voted for me or not, I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for taking the time to hear out my candidacy and thank you for all of the hard work that you have put into fighting for a more inclusive, transparent, and accessible party.

I’m honored to have earned this seat and I’m looking forward to working with each and every one of you to improve our party, push our progressive values, and defeat the recall!

In Solidarity,

David Campos

Congressman TJ Cox on Final Election Results

Today, Congressman TJ Cox called his competitor, David Valadao, to concede the race for California’s 21st Congressional District, and released the following statement:

“Almost three years ago, I entered the race for California’s 21st District as an underdog. But we out-worked our opponent and pulled off the most stunning upset in Central Valley history. Unfortunately, this year due to the Coronavirus, we weren’t able to engage in door-to-door personal canvassing and the election results reflected that. 

“I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished in just two short years. The 27 bills I introduced and the $700 million dollars of water infrastructure funding that I was able to get passed through the House shows what can be accomplished by reaching out and working together with communities and organizations on the issues that are important to all of us.

“Just as important, I was so happy to provide opportunities, internships and jobs to so many young men and women from the Valley. I want to say thank you to them for considering a career in public service.

“My proudest moment as a Member of Congress was when a young woman from the Valley said to me on the day we passed the Dream and Promise Act, ‘Thank you Congressman Cox. You finally make me feel as if someone cares.’ I do care and will continue to fight to make a positive difference in the lives of Central Valley residents.

“I am also very proud of the campaign we’ve run. We didn’t engage in gutter politics. We took our message directly to the people, many of whom never knew they could have a strong voice in their federal government. I never forgot that I work for them. I want to thank my staff, 2,000 volunteers, and over 50,000 donors who believed in our campaign to Put People First.

“I hope Mr. Valadao goes back to Washington humbled by his 2018 loss and has learned he can’t discount communities like Arvin, Lamont, and Mendota, places that went without visits from their congressional representative for years. I hope he will indeed deliver results for the Central Valley, which desperately needs a strong advocate in Washington.”

Continue the fight for justice. This is important. – Bernie

Continue the fight for justice. This is important. – Bernie

It is enormously important that Joe Biden was elected, and it would not have been possible without a multi-racial, multi-generational movement of people coming together to say enough is enough

Thank you and congratulations.

Because of your efforts, we have won the most important election in the modern history of our country.

As I’ve said many times, this election was not just about Biden vs. Trump and what their views on the issues were. It went much deeper than that. This was an election about whether we end pathological lying in the White House and retain democracy and the rule of law in our country, and thank God, we have done that.

In the days and weeks to come I’m sure that everyone in the world is going to be taking credit for Biden’s victory, and the media and the pundits will have their views. But let me just say this.

In my view, multi-racial, multi-generational progressive grassroots organizations all across this country played an extraordinary role in helping to make this victory possible. We made phone calls, we texted, we registered voters, we did virtual rallies, we distributed literature and we knocked on doors when possible. Knowing the importance of this election we did everything that we could, and more.

Together, we built widespread support for Biden among young people, people of color and the working class. In my view, Biden’s success would not have been possible without those extraordinary efforts.

And I just want to thank you all for what you did.

One of the areas where the progressive movement had real success was getting more and more young people into the voting booth and into the political process. The latest estimates that I have seen show that over 53% of young people ages 18 to 29 voted, which not only eclipses 2016’s turnout rate, but would be the highest youth turnout rate in American history. And those young people voted overwhelmingly for Biden and other Democrats.

In battlegrounds like Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia young voters very strongly supported Biden and other Democrats. In Georgia, for example, 90% of young black voters and 62% of young white voters chose Biden over Trump. And that made all the difference not only in winning that state for Biden, but forcing two Republican senators into runoff elections that will determine which party controls the U.S. Senate. One of the candidates in that runoff election is Reverend Raphael Warnock, whom we strongly supported.

Further, the strong economic agenda that the progressive movement fought for helped bring out low-income working people to vote for Biden. National exit polls show that voters with an annual family income under $50,000 voted against Trump by a 15-point margin.

Needless to say, my campaign staff and I were deeply involved in this campaign. Over the last few months we hosted more than 20 virtual rallies, viewed by millions of people, in battleground states as well as special events with young people, rural voters, the Latino community and the Muslim community.

Starting in October, we re-launched some of our very effective organizing work to reach out directly to voters in key battleground states. A dedicated group of staff and volunteers had one-on-one conversations with voters to get them the information they needed to cast their votes in this election. Further, we ended up sending 4.6 million texts across 14 states thanks to the efforts of more than 800 texting volunteers who helped mobilize our movement in support of 75 down-ballot candidates and propositions.

We also played an active role in supporting down-ballot progressive candidates, because we understand that real change comes from the bottom on up. In total, we endorsed more than 200 candidates running for local and state positions. Of those races that have been called, two-thirds of our endorsed candidates won.

It is also worth mentioning that many progressive ballot initiatives passed across the country. In Florida, voters chose to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2026. Colorado voters passed an initiative to provide 12 weeks of paid family leave. The people of Arizona voted to increase taxes on those making over $250,000 to increase funding for public education.

But now, as we celebrate our victories, we understand that our struggle is not over. It has just begun. We have accomplished step one by defeating Trump. Much more needs to be done.

Not only do we have to win the two Senate runoff elections in Georgia coming up in January so that we can have Democratic control over the U.S. Senate, but we’re going to have to do everything possible to make sure that Congress and the new president move rapidly and aggressively to address the enormous crises facing our country.

In the next several months I will present to the Senate an agenda that I would like to see passed in the first 100 days of the new Congress. This is an agenda that, among many other proposals, will include a strong COVID-19 relief package that protects the unemployed and small businesses.

It is an agenda that will end starvation wages in America, make it easier for workers to join unions and provide equal pay for equal work.

It is an agenda that will create millions of good-paying jobs as we rebuild our crumbling infrastructure.

It is an agenda that makes health care a human right as we move toward a Medicare for All single-payer system, and an agenda that substantially lowers the outrageously high cost of prescription drugs in this country.

It is an agenda that will make it possible for all working class young people to gain a college education without going into debt, and will radically improve our dysfunctional childcare system.

It is an agenda that will create millions of good-paying jobs as we lead the world in combating climate change and transforming our energy system away from fossil fuel.

It is an agenda that demands that the wealthy and powerful start paying their fair share of taxes.

It is an agenda that will take on the systemic racism that prevails throughout our country and our broken and racist criminal justice system.

It is an agenda that will lead to comprehensive immigration reform and a path towards citizenship for the undocumented.

Sisters and brothers, we have come a long way in the last five years. But the truth is that we still have an incredible amount of work ahead of us, and the path forward will not be easy.

Let us continue going forward together. Let us continue our struggle to transform this country and create a government based on the principles of justice.

Thank you for all you’ve done, and will do, for our movement.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders
