Valencia, Calif. – Today California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom endorsed Bryan Caforio for Congress in the 25th Congressional District.
“I am proud to endorse Bryan for Congress because the hardworking families of the 25th District deserve a member of Congress who will stand up for them. Bryan has a progressive agenda that focuses on job creation and investing in clean energy technologies that will lead us into a stronger economy,” said Newsom.
Gavin Newsom is the 49th Lieutenant Governor of the State of California and a candidate for Governor in 2018. His top priorities are economic development and job creation, improving access to higher education, and bolstering California’s environmental leadership.
“I am honored to earn the support of Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom,” said Caforio. “I’m ready to get to work and fight for the people of the 25th District.”
Caforio was born and raised in Southern California by two public school teachers, attended UCLA and Yale Law School, worked for a United States federal judge, and is currently a partner at Susman Godfrey L.L.P. where he practices as an attorney taking on some of the world’s biggest banks. Bryan lives in Valencia with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
The 25th District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County including the Antelope Valley, Palmdale, Lancaster, Santa Clarita, and Simi Valley. President Obama carried the district in 2008, and experts consider it a toss-up in a Presidential year. Last year Democratic registration eclipsed Republican registration for the first time, and more than half the voting age population is non-white. National Republicans list Congressman Knight as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
