North Valley Democratic Club Endorses Bryan Caforio
NVDC is the first Democratic club to endorse in the race for CA-25
Santa Clarita, Calif. – The North Valley Democratic Club voted to endorse Bryan Caforio for California’s 25th Congressional District. NVDC is the first chartered Democratic club to make an endorsement in this race. Founded in 1970, NVDC counts members from the San Fernando Valley, Simi Valley, and Santa Clarita Valley, and has made California’s 25th District its top priority for 2018.
“Bryan Caforio has a long track record of standing with our local community,” said Richard Mathews, President of the North Valley Democratic Club. “When the Porter Ranch Gas Leak started, Bryan sprung into action. While Congressman Knight actively worked against the interests of the community, Bryan has been a fierce advocate for our neighbors affected by the ongoing gas leaks and for strong environmental protections to keep our families safe and healthy.”
Caforio said of the endorsement, “I’m honored to have the support of the North Valley Democratic Club. I look forward to working with NVDC to turn the 25th District blue and bring the new, responsive leadership we so desperately need in this community.”
More than thirty local officials, along with Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, have endorsed Caforio’s campaign. Caforio recently received the endorsement of Democracy for America and holds endorsements from fifteen labor unions.
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. Polling shows Democrats with a double-digit lead over Knight.
