Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Bryan Caforio, Congressional candidate for California’s 25th District, received the endorsement of Dianne Feinstein, United States Senator. Caforio’s opponent Rep. Steve Knight’s extreme views towards women’s health have become a central issue on the campaign.
“Senator Feinstein has been a champion for women’s rights since she was elected to the United States Senate in 1992, which we proudly call ‘The Year of the Woman,’” said Caforio. “I am honored to receive her endorsement and look forward to working with Senator Feinstein to fight for women and families in Congress. It will be my priority to ensure that women have control of their reproductive rights and protect funding for Planned Parenthood, which not only provides access to birth control, but also vital cancer screenings to thousands of women here in the 25th Congressional District.”
Senator Feinstein has been a member of the United States Senate since 1992 after serving as mayor of San Francisco from 1978 to 1988. She and Barbara Boxer became the first female senators from California in the 1992 election.
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 Santa Clarita 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 this race a toss-up . Last year Democratic registration eclipsed Republican registration, and the district is now majority-minority. National Republicans list Congressman Knight as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
