Alex Padilla is a longtime friend and ally, and supporter of our community. I’m proud to endorse him for California’s Secretary of State in the general election.
Alex Padilla is a true champion of voting rights. As California’s Secretary of State, he has led the charge to pass and implement laws that will automatically register eligible citizens, and promoted online voter registration, which has added millions of new voters to California’s voter rolls.
His opponent, however, is a dangerous ideologue obsessed with non-existent voter fraud, and would focus on policies to make it harder for Californians to exercise their right to vote.
Alex has worked to assist millions of new and underserved voters in our state. He is protecting our voter rights in California and nationally by standing up to Trump and others that would try and take away our right to vote.
We served together on the Los Angeles City Council, and again in the California State Senate. I know his history, and how he will continue to support our community.
I endorse Alex Padilla for re-election again, and hope that together we can continue to close the voter registration gap and engage voters in California to have record numbers of Californians participating in our democracy.
