Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Animal PAC endorsed Bryan Caforio for California’s 25th Congressional District. Animal PAC champions candidates and lawmakers who support humane policies to reduce animal abuse and promote animal welfare.
Tony Hale, Executive Director of Animal PAC, said, “Bryan Caforio’s campaign is filled with people who love animals. Bryan sees our relationship with animals as a measure of our basic humanity. He is committed to ending cruelty to companion animals and to protecting the lives of wild animals affected by the actions of our wider society. He has been a supporter of organizations that work to protect endangered species, and when elected to serve in our nation’s capital, we look forward to another voice for the enactment of humane laws.”
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.
