On Labor Day, my campaign was endorsed by the Democrats of Southwest Riverside County by a healthy margin, and we thank the club for its support. Democratic clubs and their membership are the first swells of our growing Blue Wave, and I look forward to standing shoulder to shoulder as we bring a progressive message to the Inland Empire. My discussion that evening focussed on the promises I can make to the voters — that I have a large and diverse professional team already at work to build a winning ground game, that I’ve studied the district and have a strategy to win it for the Democrats, and that I will always put the interests of the voters first. I know where I came from and my loyalty is to the people, not the wealthy special interests — I will not take corporate PAC money, and I’m proud of my lifetime of strong support for labor unions and the interests of the working class.
