SEIU California Endorses Bryan Caforio for Congress
Valencia, Calif. – Bryan Caforio announced today that Service Employees International Union (SEIU) California has endorsed his campaign for Congress in the 25th Congressional District. Representing over 700,000 Californians, SEIU’s mission is to improve the lives of working families and fight for jobs with decent wages and better working conditions.
“I am honored to earn the support of SEIU California,” said Caforio. “So much of our country’s success is owed to the fearless advocacy of our brothers and sisters in Labor. In Congress, I will keep up the fight to protect hardworking Americans.”
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 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 won the district in 2008, and experts consider it a toss-up in a Presidential election year. Last year Democratic registration eclipsed Republican registration for the first time, and the district is now majority-minority. National Republicans list Congressman Knight as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
