Bryan Caforio Leads Money Race in CA-25
Holds more cash-on-hand than all other Democrats
Santa Clarita, Calif. – As of the latest FEC reports, Bryan Caforio, Democratic candidate in California’s 25th Congressional District, holds $539,740 cash-on-hand, leading all the other Democrats in the race. Combined with the most recent polling showing Caforio with almost double the vote share of any other Democrat in the June primary, he is well-positioned for his rematch with Steve Knight in November.
“With Bryan Caforio’s 2:1 lead in the polls, it’s clear that people all over this District are eager to elect a representative who will stop Donald Trump’s attacks on our healthcare, on women, on immigrant families, and on facts themselves,” said Nicole DeMont, Bryan Caforio’s campaign manager. “That momentum is reflected in Bryan’s grassroots support—including endorsements from Democratic clubs, eighteen labor unions, and dozens of local officials who are on the ground and know what it takes to win.”
All eighteen labor unions that have endorsed in this race have endorsed Caforio—more than any challenger in the state of California. Every Democratic club in the District to endorse has endorsed Caforio, and dozens of local officials are backing Caforio.
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.
