Emphasizes Caforio’s Commitment to Ending Washington Gridlock
Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Bryan Caforio, Congressional candidate for California’s 25th District, received the endorsement of Edmund G. “Jerry” Brown, Governor of California. Caforio’s opponent Rep. Steve Knight’s has publicly stated he hates the term ‘work across the aisle’, calling those who do ‘wishy-washy’, and proudly proclaims ‘partisan politics is not a bad thing’.
“The country needs a Congress that works and leaders who will fight to break the gridlock in Washington,” said Brown, Governor of California. “I am strongly endorsing Bryan Caforio because he will get things done.”
Since returning to the Governor’s Office, Brown helped eliminate the state’s multi-billion budget deficit, cut its unemployment rate in half and added more than 2 million new jobs, while enacting sweeping public safety, immigration, workers’ compensation, health care, water, pension and economic development reforms.
“I am honored to be endorsed by Governor Brown who shares my commitment to ending the partisan gridlock in Washington,” said Caforio. “The inability of our nation’s representatives to work across the aisle has resulted in Congress’s failure to pass a budget, leaving federal programs in a lurch and wasting taxpayers dollars. The residents of the 25th Congressional District deserve a representative who will go to Washington and work for them in a non-partisan manner to create jobs, improve infrastructure, invest in education, and build an economy that works for everyone.”
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 this race a toss-up . Last year Democratic registration eclipsed Republican registration, and the district is now majority-minority. National Republicans list Congressman Knight as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
