Democracy for America endorses Bryan Caforio in California’s 25th Congressional District
Today, Democracy for America (DFA) announced its endorsement of Bryan Caforio in his race against Republican Representative Steve Knight in California’s 25th Congressional District.
DFA is a member-driven, people-powered progressive PAC with more than 270,950 members in the state of California and one million members nationwide committed to taking on income inequality, money in politics, and structural racism.
Statement from DFA Chair Jim Dean on the grassroots organization’s endorsement of Bryan Caforio:
“Bryan Caforio doesn't just believe in progressive values, he’s spent his career fighting for them head-on. As an attorney, he stood up to the world's biggest banks after the subprime mortgage crisis and won. Now, Bryan’s running to bring our fight to Congress and use his hands-on experience to change the system. Californians deserve leaders in Congress who will stand up to the wealthy and powerful who run Washington and that’s precisely why we’re so excited to support Bryan Caforio's people-powered campaign.” -- Jim Dean, Chair, Democracy for America.
Statement from Bryan Caforio on receiving Democracy for America’s endorsement:
"I'm honored to receive the endorsement of Democracy For America. I got into this race because I was sick of seeing a system that rewards the wealthy few at the expense of working people. Instead of fighting predatory banks one case at a time, I decided to run for Congress so we can work to build a better system and an economy that works for all of us. Democracy for America has been a champion in the fight for income inequality and economic justice, and I can't wait to work together on the campaign trail and in Congress.” -- Bryan Caforio
DFA’s endorsement of Caforio brings with it a one-million member-strong grassroots army that has knocked hundreds of thousands of doors, made over 11.1 million phone calls, and raised and contributed more than $36.6 million to help elect 843 progressive candidates nationwide since 2004.
