Valencia, Calif. – Today, local leaders throughout the 25th Congressional District endorsed Bryan Caforio in his campaign against vulnerable Republican Congressman Steve Knight. They join a growing list of community leaders, advocacy groups, and organizations who support Caforio in one of the most competitive congressional races in the country.

“I’m honored to have such a broad range of support from elected and community leaders throughout the District,” said Caforio. “I look forward to working with these community leaders to make sure our voices are heard in Washington. Together we can fight the politics of division, cut through Washington dysfunction, and provide new leadership for the working families of our community.”

Caforio was born and raised in Southern California by two public school teachers, attended UCLA and Yale Law School, worked for a United States federal judge, and practices as an attorney taking on some of the world’s biggest banks. Bryan lives in Santa Clarita with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.

The 25th District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County including the Antelope Valley, Palmdale, Lancaster, Santa Clarita, and Simi Valley. President Obama won the district in 2008, and experts consider it a toss-up in a Presidential election year. Last year Democratic registration eclipsed Republican registration for the first time, and the district is now majority-minority. National Republicans list Congressman Knight as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
