Wrong for California

In 2012, voters across California sent nine (9) targeted Republican Congressional incumbents and challengers packing. As the 2014 election approaches, we're not giving these California Republican House members and candidates a pass. Learn more about their record, including their votes to shut down the government, and find out why 2014 will be the year California voters shut down these Tea Party Republicans.

Mitt Romney Backs Tony Strickland

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

Tony Strickland rolled out a roaring endorsement from failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney today. While Strickland has refused to publicly state his support for the disastrous Paul Ryan budget, touting the Romney endorsement makes it clear to us which side he’s on when it comes to this out-of-touch budget, which was the centerpiece of the Romney 2012 Campaign. 

While today’s endorsement may not come as a surprise to some, it will likely raise more questions than it answers for a candidate who is known to have “deep ties” to Mitt Romney.

DeMaio Wins Koch Money Sweepstakes

Tenoch Flores, California Democratic Party

Republican Carl DeMaio has earned the dubious distinction of being the first Republican House candidate in California to receive a political contribution from the Koch Brothers.

Charles and David Koch, known as the Koch Brothers, are billionaire Tea Party funders known for their political contributions to uber-conservative causes and candidates. In Carl DeMaio, it seems the Koch Brothers have found their man in San Diego.

Denham Goes Extreme….Again

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

Jeff Denham recently voted for the reckless Ryan budget, which takes aims at Medicare, cuts Pell grants and slashes funding for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), among other things. Once again, Denham sides with his fellow Tea Party members no matter how destructive their policies are or how negatively they will impact his own constituents.  

To illustrate the point, according to the USDA in Denham’s own district, over 83,000 of his constituents rely on SNAP benefits.[1] When it comes to Medicare, 39,000 of his constituents depend on Medicare[2] for their healthcare according to the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Service*. All told, over 100,000 of his constituents would feel the pain of the Ryan budget, not that it seems to matter to Denham.

Gary Miller Throws in the Towel

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

California Republican Gary Miller announced he would not seek re-election to Congress in the 31st Congressional District after it became clear that he would not be able to hold onto his seat. 

Republicans like Miller have increasingly found themselves on the wrong side of a district that has turned far more Democratic in recent years.  It looks like he figured out another run for office would’ve meant defeat at the hands of Democrats.  Click here to learn more about the story.

We’re starting early

Tenoch Flores, California Democratic Party

In 2012, California Democrats won nine of ten targeted Congressional races, including picking off four Republican-held seats. No other state in the country did more to chip away at the House Republican majority.

We’re determined to keep winning and keep doing our part. That’s why we’re starting early.

With just under a year to go until the 2014 elections, we need to start getting the word out about the California Congressional Republicans that are wrong for their districts and Wrong for California.
