Caforio Earns Overwhelming Support at CDP Convention
Receives more than three times as many votes as next closest candidate
Santa Clarita, Calif. – This weekend, grassroots activists at the California Democratic Party Convention from California’s 25th Congressional District voted overwhelmingly to support Bryan Caforio. Caforio earned 52.8 percent of the vote—more than three times as many votes as his next closest competitor.
The final results were:
Bryan Caforio 52.8%
No Endorsement 32.1%
Katie Hill 15.1%
Caforio’s commanding lead at the CDP Convention reflects his widespread support on the ground: all 18 labor unions to endorse in this race have endorsed Caforio, all the Democratic clubs in the District to endorse have endorsed Caforio, and dozens of local officials have endorsed Caforio.
“I’m humbled and honored to see this broad coalition of support behind our campaign,” said Bryan Caforio. “With this much energy and excitement behind us, I’m confident we’ll turn this District blue in November and start taking our country back.”
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, and registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans. 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.
