Santa Clarita, Calif. – Bryan Caforio, congressional candidate for California’s 25th district, today released a new ad, “Stand Up,” that highlights Caforio’s commitment to stand up to bullies like Donald Trump – unlike his opponent Rep. Steve Knight – and fight for equal pay, protect Planned Parenthood, and pass commonsense immigration reform.
“Donald Trump and extreme Republicans like Congressman Steve Knight don’t represent our values,” said Bryan Caforio. “In Congress I’ll fight for women’s rights, access to healthcare, and immigration reform that would boost our economy and keep families together. And unlike Congressman Steve Knight, I’ll always stand up to bullies like Trump.”
The ad will air on broadcast and digital throughout the Los Angeles media market.
Trump [Mocking disabled reporter]: “Ahh…I don’t know what I said. Ahh.”
Trump [Access Hollywood footage]: Grab ‘em by the p****.
Caforio: I’m Bryan Caforio. As the son of school teachers, I know these aren’t our values.
Trump [Interview footage]: “Putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing.”
Trump [MSNBC footage]: “There has to be some form of punishment.” “For the woman?” “Ya.”
Caforio: Unlike extremist Congressman Steve Knight, I’ll stand up to bullies like Donald Trump.
Caforio: In Congress, I’ll fight for equal pay and to protect Planned Parenthood. And get real immigration reform.
Caforio: I’m Bryan Caforio and I approve this message.
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.
