Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Bryan Caforio, candidate for California’s 25th Congressional District, was endorsed by Teamsters Joint Council 42. Caforio holds endorsements from 17 labor unions—more than any candidate in the country.
“On behalf of all the working men and women who make up Teamsters Joint Council 42, we’re proud to endorse Bryan Caforio for Congress,” said Randy Cammack, President of Teamsters Joint Council 42. “Donald Trump and his enablers in Congress, like Steve Knight, are launching a full on attack against working families, and we know Bryan will fight for us.”
Teamsters Joint Council 42 counts 250,000 members and retirees in its 23 local unions, including city employees in Palmdale and Lancaster, right in the heart of California’s 25th District.
The son of two public school teachers, Caforio was born and raised in Southern California, 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 and corporations. Bryan lives in Santa Clarita with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
California’s 25th Congressional District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County, including the Santa Clarita Valley, Antelope Valley, and Simi Valley. Hillary Clinton won the district by more than six points in 2016, registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans, and the district is majority-minority. The district is now considered a “toss-up” and is held by Tea Party Republican Steve Knight, whom national Republicans have publicly identified as one of their most vulnerable incumbents. Polling shows Democrats with a double-digit lead over Knight.
