My Top 3 Priorities

  • Holding President Trump Accountable: I've served subpoenas, put witnesses under oath, and reviewed evidence and testimony to protect the Constitution. I'll use those skills and experience to combat corruption and protect our democracy.
  • Medicare for All: it's time that every American have access to high quality and affordable healthcare. We need to reduce prescription drug prices and make sure no family goes bankrupt because of a medical emergency.
  • Building a Fair Economy: improve our public schools, pass comprehensive immigration reform, end wage discrimination, institute a national living wage, and reduce the tax burden on the middle class by making sure corporations pay their fair share.

Experience

Biography

Dysfunction in President Trump’s Washington hurts real people. We need leaders with the skills and experience to hold President Trump accountable.

I am the son of two public school teachers, graduated from UCLA and Yale Law School, and clerked for a United States federal judge on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. I've served subpoenas, put witnesses under oath, and reviewed evidence and testimony to protect the Constitution. I'll use my skills and experience to hold Trump accountable each and every time he breaks the law, and fight to stop his attacks on women, immigrants, and our environment. 

I’m sick and tired of seeing families struggle while Washington politicians stack the deck against us. I’m a proud pro-choice Planned Parenthood supporter. I’ll work to pass Medicare for All so every family has high-quality, affordable healthcare. I’ll protect Social Security and Medicare to keep the promises we’ve made to seniors. I’ll restore net neutrality and make corporations keep our private information confidential. And I’ll defend DREAMers to keep families together.

Rather than cater to special interests, I’m working to even the playing field. I refuse corporate donations, and I’ll fight back against President Trump’s plans to raise taxes on California homeowners and drill for dirty oil off California’s coast. We need our representatives to stand up to the corporate gun lobby and powerful pharmaceutical companies so that we can implement commonsense solutions to start saving lives.

I’m proud to be supported by groups representing thousands of working families, including nurses and aerospace workers, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, and dozens of local officials in our community. It's time to start taking our country back, and I'm ready for the fight.
