Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Bryan Caforio earned 72.9 percent of the delegate votes at the California Democratic Party Pre-Endorsing Conference for California’s 25th Congressional District.

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.
