Following the results of the California primary, DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:
“California Democrats made history up and down the ballot tonight. Voters across the state are hungry for Democratic leadership, because they know Democrats will fight for the issues that keep them up at night – whether it’s finding a good-paying job, having access to quality health care, or getting an education that will open doors without the burden of massive debt.
“For far too long, California Republicans like Mimi Walters, Steve Knight, and David Valadao have made it clear that they don’t have the backs of California families. California families deserve better, and I know that our stellar candidates are ready to cross the finish line in November. The path to taking back the House runs through California, and the Democratic National Committee is ready to fight tooth and nail to elect Democrats up and down the state – including gubernatorial nominee Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom – who will fight for California’s working families.”
