REPORT: Farmers hurting from Trump’s trade war

The US Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service just released statistics show

TJ Cox for Congress

Trump’s trade war is still raging and farmers across the country are still hurting.

The US Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service just released statistics showing that “net cash income” is down over 20% in the Central Valley agricultural zone.

TJ Cox works in the almond business — so do 104,000 other Californians. The almond industry is projected to lose $1 billion due to this trade war. Trump’s tariffs are putting local businesses, good-paying jobs, and economic growth in the Central Valley at risk. That’s why locals are so angry that David Valadao REFUSES to push back on Trump to prevent this trade war from getting worse.

We need your input. Even if you’re not in the farming industry, this is an issue that impacts everyone. Can you take our one-minute survey and tell us where you stand on Trump’s trade tariffs?

Thanks for sharing your input,

Fresno Firefighters Back Janz in CA-22

(Fresno, CA) September 20th, 2018 – Andrew Janz, candidate for the House in California’s 22nd District, and Fresno Firefighters Local 753 Representative James Scoggins release the following statements today:

“Public safety is a key issue for me as a local prosecutor and something I will continue to fight for if elected to Congress. I am honored to have the support of local firefighters, these men and women put their lives on the line to keep us safe everyday. They deserve a champion in Washington.” – Andrew Janz

“Andrew Janz is the right person to fight for firefighters and our issues in Washington. Unlike Devin Nunes, Janz will oppose efforts to weaken our pension system. We deserve a Congressman who will be an advocate for public safety.” – James Scoggins

Andrew Janz is a deputy district attorney for Fresno County, where he was assigned to the Violent Crimes Unit.

A story of my childhood

New video will change the race, need your help.


I’ll keep this short because I want the video to speak for itself. We’ve created a video (it’s short) that really goes into depth about my childhood growing up in the Barrio Logan in San Diego, and how my mother risked everything to give me a shot at the American Dream.


It also talks about how it almost didn’t happen.


We launched it yesterday and the response has been incredible, in just 24 short hours, this video has been seen over 35,000 times on Twitter. And it’s just beginning.


Reality is that we need to get this message across the state to progressive activists, independent voters and even Republicans. Can you make a contribution and help us spread this video to every corner of the state?


Daniel Marans from Huffington Post broke this story and he writes:


“In fact, he has a record of progressive accomplishments in the legislature that would be the envy of many congressional veterans. He was the author of California’s sanctuary state bill, which became law in October. More recently, de León shepherded the passage of a climate change bill that requires California to run on 100 percent renewable energy by 2045.


“I’m no stranger to crafting complex, arcane policies like 100 percent clean energy. That’s not an easy feat in the fifth largest economy in the world,” de León said.

“I’m not being aspirational,” he added. “I want to get shit done.”

I hope you agree. And the only way that we can get our message out is with grassroots donations. It’s not perfect, but in order to run a statewide campaign in a place as big as California we need to raise funds and get this message out there.


Will you donate to my campaign today and help this video go viral?



If this video moves you, or makes you think that we can be a better country with new leadership, my ask is simple:



This money will go solely towards making sure that we get this in front of Democrats, Republicans, and independents all across California and the country.


Our campaign has always been grounded in the hope that California deserves not only one, but two progressive voices in the Senate. I’m so glad and grateful to have you on my side.


Thank you,

I’m excited to share that the Los Angeles Times has endorsed me to be California’s next Treasurer!

“Ma is clear-eyed about the state’s financial condition and its investment needs, and we’re confident that she would continue the policies that have done well for California taxpayers.” — Los Angeles Times, September 14, 2018

New Janz Ad: Nunes and Washington “Not Working” for the Central Valley


New Janz Ad: Nunes and Washington “Not Working” for the Central Valley


Fresno, CA (September 19th, 2018) – The Andrew Janz for Congress campaign released a new ad today for television and digital, targeting Devin Nunes for taking nearly 1 million dollars from big banks and voting to privatize Social Security. Andrew Janz sends a direct message to Devin Nunes saying “your time is up, you’ve had your chance.” Devin Nunes has been in office for nearly two decades and hasn’t passed one piece of legislation for the people of the Central Valley.


The video can be viewed here:





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, 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.


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.
