Gavin Newsom Endorses Bryan Caforio in California’s 25th District
Applauds Caforio for His Commitment to Quality Healthcare
Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Bryan Caforio, candidate for Congress in California’s 25th District, announced the endorsement of Lieutenant Governor and gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom. Last week Caforio received endorsements from twenty-five elected and appointed officials in the district.
“We can count on Bryan to fight against Trump’s out-of-touch policies,” said Newsom. “While Trump and Steve Knight put healthcare at risk for tens of millions of people, including children, seniors, and anyone with a pre-existing condition, Bryan won’t back down until every family has quality healthcare they can rely on.”
“I’m honored to have Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom’s support,” said Caforio. “I will always stand up to Trump’s dangerous policies, and I am committed to ensuring families in our community don’t ever have to choose between putting food on the table and dependable healthcare.”
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. Bryan lives in Santa Clarita with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
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.
