Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters Endorses Bryan Caforio

Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Bryan Caforio, candidate in California’s 25th Congressional District, announced the endorsement of the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters. Made up of 28 local unions, the Southwest Regional Council includes more than 50,000 members.

Dan Langford, President of the 50,000 member Southwest Carpenters and a Lancaster resident, said, “Bryan Caforio has stood with us in our fight for good jobs, safe working conditions and job training programs for our local young people. Both local businesses and working men and women in our communities need a middle-class champion like Bryan who will be fighting for us in Congress.”

“Too many hardworking people in our community, especially our young folks, are struggling to get by,” said Ron Diament, a local carpenter leader and Lake Hughes resident. “Now more than ever, we need a congressman like Bryan Caforio who will always make middle-class families his top priority.”

With endorsements from more than fifteen labor unions, more than thirty local officials, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, and multiple Democratic clubs and organizations in the District, Caforio has a broad coalition of support behind him in his race for California’s 25th District.


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 incumbentsPolling shows Democrats with a double-digit lead over Knight.
