Democracy for America Endorses Bryan Caforio
Highlights Caforio’s people-powered progressive campaign

Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Democracy for America endorsed Bryan Caforio in California’s 25th Congressional District. Founded by former presidential candidate Howard Dean, DFA has been working to elect leading progressive candidates for more than a decade. DFA focuses on empowering grassroots activism to combat the influence of Washington special interests on our elections.

“Bryan Caforio is the progressive leader we need in Congress today,” said Jim Dean, Chair of Democracy for America. “Bryan has spent his career taking on banks and corporations, and he’ll take those fights to Congress. DFA is thrilled to support Bryan and his grassroots, community-oriented campaign.”

“We need to oust corporate politicians and get representatives in office who will champion progressive policies to really start improving people’s daily lives. We need Medicare for All, to get money out of politics, and to stop letting bankers and billionaires keep getting richer at the expense of everyone else,” said Bryan Caforio. “I’m proud to stand with Democracy for America as we fight to take back our country, and excited for all we can accomplish together in the years ahead.”

More than fifteen labor unions and thirty local officials, along with Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, have endorsed Caforio’s campaign. Polling shows Caforio already tied with Rep. Steve Knight.

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.
