DFA Celebrates Jimmy Gomez’s Victory in California’s 34th District Special Congressional Election
Democracy for America celebrated the victory of Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez in the special election for California’s 34th Congressional District. The progressive organization endorsed Gomez in April, and it’s members made more than 15,000 calls for Gomez in the past week alone.
Democracy for America Senior Electoral Campaign Manager Alejandro Chavez on the victory:
“Tonight, the Latino community stood up to Donald Trump by electing a strong progressive champion, Jimmy Gomez, to Congress. Jimmy Gomez is already known for his effective progressive leadership in California, where he has authored bills for priorities like universal single payer health care and getting secret money out of politics. We congratulate him on his impressive win tonight, and are thrilled to work with him in Congress to resist Trump and enact the progressive agenda we need.”- Alejandro Chavez, Senior Electoral Campaign Manager at Democracy for America and Grandson of Civil Rights leader Cesar E. Chavez.
