Santa Clarita, Calif. – In response to Rep. Steve Knight’s budget vote today, Bryan Caforio, candidate for Congress in California’s 25th District, released the following statement:
“Steve Knight just voted to take away a $5,300 tax deduction from more than 40 percent of families. Next week these same families will see their healthcare costs skyrocket because Rep. Knight has worked with Trump to sabotage our healthcare. Time and time again, Knight has proven he’s focused on his wealthy-first agenda, even if that means making healthcare unaffordable and making middle-class families pay more.”
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.
