Wrong for California

In 2012 and 2014 voters across California sent 12 targeted Republican Congressional incumbents and challengers packing. In 2016, California Republican House members and candidates are running on the Trump ticket, and we're not giving them a free ride. If we're going to take back the House and end the Tea Party's divisive rule, it has to start by defeating extreme Republicans right here in California.

Republicans’ shady money trail

Fareed Is a Rubber Stamp for Trump

Michael Soller, California Democratic Party

Jones' Sorry Record With Women

Ngoc Nguyen, California Democratic Party

Jones is accused of sexually harassing a 26-year-old female deputy who worked under him, taking advantage of his position above her. News coverage noted that the woman testified under oath that Jones harassed her approximately 30 times, and the woman feared retribution if she spoke out.

GOP Jokers on the Trump Ticket

WrongforCA.com is launching a week of action to expose the California Congressional candidates who are standing with Donald Trump – including digital playing cards that flip to reveal the “jokers” who are running for Congress on the Trump platform.

One recent projection shows California with four vulnerable Republican members of Congress, more than any other state. Strong voter turnout here can help Democrats erase Republicans’ Congressional majority and enact Hillary Clinton’s plan to invest in good jobs to build the middle class.

Denham Fails the Trump Test

Ngoc Nguyen, California Democratic Party

The Modesto Bee endorsed Jeff Denham for Congress in 2014. But Denham’s hometown newspaper just dumped him over his failure to denounce Trump and his divisive rhetoric. 

“Trump has made himself into a national litmus test, and it absolutely matters,” the Bee wrote. “Supporting Trump is supporting racism, misogyny, business chicanery, bullying, unparalleled narcissism and more.”

Silence as Trump Slurs Gold Star Parents

Republicans are backing away from Donald Trump after he belittled the grief-stricken mother of a Muslim-American officer who died protecting his unit from a suicide bomber in Iraq.

Denham, Knight and Valadao Won't Vote

They ditched town in the dark of night instead of doing their jobs.

Following the mass killings in San Bernardino, Colorado, and Orlando, a majority of Americans in both parties support taking guns out of the hands of terror suspects.

But California Republicans in Congress just sneaked out of Washington without a vote on the No Fly No Buy law. Jeff Denham and David Valadao have taken thousands of dollars from the NRA. They're too scared of losing gun lobby campaign dollars to even vote. Or maybe they're just scared of voters' reaction when they find out their leaders are standing with the gun lobby instead of protecting Americans.

It's not the first time Republicans have done the NRA's bidding with potentially deadly consequences. In December 2015 House Republicans blocked a No Fly, No Buy bill that could have prevented the Orlando massacre by stopping the shooter from buying a gun.

If House Republicans won't do their job, we need to elect leaders who will vote on bills and show Americans where they stand on keeping guns out of the hands of suspected terrorists.
