Santa Clarita, Calif. – Jon Favreau, co-founder of Crooked Media, host of Pod Save America, and former head speechwriter for President Barack Obama, sat down for an extended interview with 25th District Congressional candidate Bryan Caforio.
Watch a recap of the interview here.
Favreau, along with his Pod Save America co-hosts, has traveled the country highlighting top candidates in the most competitive races that will determine if Democrats win the majority in Congress this November.
Filmed in front of a live audience, the interview covered topics including moving to a Medicare for All healthcare system, protecting women’s reproductive freedom, and Congressman Steve Knight’s out-of-touch voting record.
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.
