State Senator Anna Caballero Endorses
Jim Costa for Re-election to Congress

Today, Congressman Jim Costa’s campaign announced that State Senator Anna Caballero (D-Salinas) has endorsed Congressman Costa for re-election to the United States Congress.

“Jim Costa has been a longtime champion for delivering a fair share of resources to the Valley, and has made access to safe, reliable water and clean air a top priority in Congress,” said Senator Anna Caballero. “We need Jim in Congress continuing his work and achieving more victories for the Valley.”

Senator Caballero was elected to the State Senate in 2018, representing portions of Fresno, Madera, Merced, Monterey, San Benito and Stanislaus Counties.

Congressman Costa said: “I am proud to receive the endorsement of Senator Anna Caballero. Senator Caballero has been a key ally in protecting and improving the lives of Valley families, and I am looking forward to continuing to work with her to deliver even more for our region and California.”

—For Immediate Release—

Democrats select non-profit health care executive, Bobby Bliatout, to be their official party standard-bearer to oppose Devin Nunes

The official endorsement of Bobby Bliatout by the California Democratic Party adds to his Congressional campaign’s dominant coalition of endorsements

Long Beach, CA- After a week of being excoriated by national and local pundits for his hyper-partisan, illogical, and diversion laden arguments, as President Trump’s standard-bearer, at this week’s impeachment hearings on the House Intelligence Committee, Congressman Devin Nunes has to deal with more bad news– the California Democratic Party has chosen health care expert ,Bobby Bliatout as the party’s official candidate to take on Nunes next November.

Michael D. Evans, chair of the Fresno County Democratic Party, issued the following statement:

“We congratulate Bobby Bliatout for putting together a strong coalition of local stakeholders to secure the California Democratic Party endorsement for Congressional District 22. Beating incumbent Devin Nunes is a national priority, but to Central Valley residents Nunes’ antagonism toward healthcare reform, economic development and cleaner Valley air and water make defeating him a critical local priority. As a healthcare expert, Bobby is an ideal alternative to Nunes on an issue of critical importance to all Americans.”

Bliatout responded to the endorsement by emphasizing the importance of being in touch with the issues that Valley residents face. He said, “Receiving the endorsement of the Democratic Party as the candidate to take on Devin Nunes is an honor. We won this endorsement by building a grassroots coalition who represent the rich history and diversity of the Central Valley. That’s the same type of coalition we’ll need to put together to beat Devin Nunes next November.”

Hi there,

When you come from a family of educators like I do, you know how the power of learning opens new horizons and opportunities. As our world and our economy change, ongoing learning is increasingly necessary to succeed. That opportunity should be available to every American, whether they choose to go to college or not.

My new plan for affordable college, 21st-century workforce development, and lifelong learning will enable 10 million more students to graduate with high-quality degrees or credentials over the next decade.

We will make college affordable for everyone. For as long as we can remember, a college degree has been a ticket to well-paying jobs and opportunities after college — and for many Americans, a pathway to the middle class. But today, rising tuition puts this dream out of reach — it’s costing families more than ever before.

The average college graduate starts their life with around $30,000 in debt. And that’s if they graduate. More than 40% of students don’t even make it to graduation. This plan will change that. We will make tuition free for 80% of American families, and subsidized for the next 10%. We’ll automatically enroll student borrowers in affordable, income-driven repayment plans if they fall behind, significantly invest in community colleges, and expand the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.

Warren for President

In just a couple of days, Elizabeth will be joining the debate stage in Atlanta.

This next debate is a chance for millions of Americans to hear about Elizabeth’s vision for big, structural change. This fight is their fight, too — and Elizabeth will be making the case for our grassroots movement.

After this debate, people from across the country will be wondering how they can get involved. We need to be ready to fight — and have the resources to empower Americans to join our movement and make change in their communities.

You’re an important part of this campaign, and we can’t thank you enough. As we ramp up organizing ahead of 2020, will you make a donation for the first time today to continue to help keep up the momentum?

Andrew Yang for President

Yang Gang —

Every one of us is here to win the election and get Andrew in the White House. That means crushing fundraising goals, qualifying for debates, rising in the polls, and ultimately, making Andrew the Democratic nominee so he can beat Trump in 2020. It also means we keep building our momentum and surpassing all expectations.

We know that if enough of the Yang Gang makes enough noise, the media, the establishment, and the entire country will not be able to ignore this movement.

Let’s make A LOT of noise this week by hitting a new goal our team just set: 750,000 total campaign contributions by debate night this Wednesday. So far, there have been over 734,554 contributions made and we’re 97.9% of the way there. Pitch in $10 or whatever you can to help us get the rest of the way:

Dear Friend,

We’re back in Washington to work on important legislation to enhance our election security, officially recognize the Armenian Genocide, and create better systems to support our agricultural economy. Here are some highlights:  

 


Protecting Valley agriculture

America’s farmers are in need of a legal and reliable workforce. I am pleased to help introduce and cosponsor the Farm Workforce Modernization Act. As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Livestock and Foreign Agriculture, I am all too familiar with the labor shortages our farmers have been struggling with for years and the hardships of employees living without protective status. Farm workers are part of communities in the Valley. As I’ve always said, food security is a national security issue and these hardworking people put food on America’s dinner table every night.  Throughout my time in Congress,  I have worked to find a way to provide a path to residency for these hardworking individuals, without whom California agriculture and our local economy could not thrive.

Earlier this month, I held a town hall with Reps. Lofgren, Panetta, and Cox to discuss issues addressed by the Farm Workforce Modernization Act.
