Santa Clarita, Calif. – In response to President Trump’s press conference on Charlottesville today, Bryan Caforio released the following statement:
“We expect our leaders to be clear and strong in the face of domestic terrorism. President Trump’s refusal to condemn the hatred and racism we witnessed in Charlottesville, and now his defense of white supremacists, is a disgrace to our country and our core values. While we can’t rely on our president to provide the moral leadership we expect, we as Americans must come together to show that this is not who we are and that we will not tolerate such hatred.”
The son of two public school teachers, Caforio was born and raised in Southern California, 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.
