LA County Young Democrats Endorse Bryan Caforio for Congress
Valencia, Calif. – Today the Los Angeles County Young Democrats (LACYD), California’s largest Young Democratic Chapter endorsed Bryan Caforio for Congress in the 25th Congressional District.
“Bryan Caforio has spent his career taking on the biggest banks and corporations,” said LACYD Vice President of Communications Jason Levin. “We can count on Bryan to take on the special interests in Washington and fight for the issues that matter to us, unlike Congressman Steve Knight.”
LACYD was established to give young Democrats a voice and a vehicle for activism in local, state and federal political issues. With more than 1,400 members and supporters, LACYD remains at the forefront of keeping Young Democrats engaged, informed, and heard on issues of importance to young people.
“I am proud to earn the support of the Los Angeles County Young Democrats,” said Caforio. “In Congress I will fight for policies that move our country forward, like making college affordable and reducing student debt, so all Americans can succeed.”
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.
