Proud to endorse my friend Xavier Becerra as he runs for re-election as California’s Attorney General in the general election.
Xavier Becerra has been leading the resistance to Trump in California, and across the country. Xavier has filed over three dozen lawsuits against the administration, on every issue that matters to Californians from immigration to health care and environmental policy. He is standing up for us, and standing up to Trump every day.
Becerra's Republican opponent will be nothing more than a Trump rubber stamp. His opponent supports the draconian “three strikes” policy, the death penalty, ending criminal justice reform, and opposes common sense gun laws and more. He will not protect our community.
Xavier Becerra has made history as California's first Latino Attorney General. He’s the son of working class Mexican immigrants, and became the first in his family to graduate from college. He has not forgotten his roots, and continues to fight for working Californians every day.
Xavier has served the public for more than two decades, as a deputy attorney general in the California Department of Justice from 1987 to 1990, then elected to the state assembly in 1990 and going on to serve in Congress until last year. He now fights for us in Sacramento as Attorney General.
“Dime con quién andas y te diré quién eres. Tell me with whom you walk, and I'll tell you who you are.” I am still proud to walk with Xavier Becerra.
