Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl Endorses Bryan Caforio
Calls Steve Knight’s Anti-Woman Agenda Appalling
Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Bryan Caforio, Congressional candidate for California’s 25th District, received the endorsement of Sheila Kuehl, Los Angeles County Supervisor. Caforio’s opponent Rep. Steve Knight’s extreme views towards women’s health have become a central issue on the campaign.
“As the first woman to serve as Speaker pro Tempore of the California Assembly and the first openly gay or lesbian person to be elected to the California Legislature, I am appalled by the incendiary attacks that Rep. Steve Knight and Donald Trump have made on women,” said Kuehl, 3rd District Supervisor, Los Angeles County. “Ignoring settled law, Knight would roll back Roe vs. Wade, robbing women of the right to make their own health care decisions even in the case of rape, incest, or the health of the mother. Thankfully, we have Bryan Caforio who will fight to protect Planned Parenthood funding and allow women the right to choose when or whether to start a family. I support Bryan Caforio because I am confident in his commitment to fighting for the rights of women, minorities, and the LGBTQ community.”
Supervisor Sheila James Kuehl, representing Los Angeles County’s Third District, was elected on November 4, 2014. Kuehl previously served eight years in the State Senate and six years in the State Assembly.
“I’m proud to have the endorsement Supervisor Kuehl who has done so much for the women and families of California by writing legislation to establish paid family leave, and prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender and disability in the workplace,” said Caforio. “In Congress I will continue the fight for pro-family policies including passage of equal pay for equal work; requiring employers to provide paid family leave, allowing women to make their own healthcare decisions, and proudly standing with Planned Parenthood as it continues to serve thousands of women in our community with critical medical services.”
