25 for the 25th: Twenty-Five Local Elected and Appointed Officials Endorse Bryan Caforio in 25th District Congressional Race

Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Bryan Caforio, candidate for Congress, announced the endorsements of elected and appointed officials and community leaders from across California’s 25th District. The endorsements come just days after Caforio announced his candidacy in Palmdale among hundreds of supporters.

“I’m grateful for this outpouring of support from every corner of the district,” said Caforio. “From Simi Valley to Lancaster, Porter Ranch to Palmdale, and right here in Santa Clarita, these local leaders see what’s working and what isn’t. I’m proud to stand with these community leaders as we put the people’s interests above the special interests, and work together to move this community forward.”

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 and corporations.

California’s 25th Congressional District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County, including the Santa Clarita Valley, Antelope Valley, and Simi Valley. Hillary Clinton won the district by more than six points in 2016, registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans, and the district is majority-minority. The district is now considered a “toss-up” and is held by Tea Party Republican Steve Knight, whom national Republicans have publicly identified as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
