Bradbury: “Navy Fighter Pilot Mike Garcia is a Perfect Fit.”
(Simi Valley, CA) – Former District Attorney Michael Bradbury today announced his endorsement of Mike Garcia for Congress.
“Mike Garcia has commanded an early and decisive level of support for his campaign,” said Mr. Bradbury. “As a man who has fought for his country, he understands the importance of rule of law, and was willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice. As a father and husband, he understands what it means to protect those you love. I know he will represent his district and his country with distinction and honor.”
Mr. Bradbury served for 24 years as the District Attorney of Ventura County, California, and 33 years as a prosecutor. As District Attorney, he headed an office which was recognized as one of the best and most innovative law enforcement agencies in the nation. He was the first District Attorney in California’s history to twice be elected president of the California District Attorneys Association, and he also served many years on the Board of Directors of the National District Attorneys Association. He has served Governors and Presidents and received some of law enforcements highest awards.
Bradbury’s endorsement adds to the growing list of prominent supporters of Mike Garcia for Congress, including Former Governor Pete Wilson as well as previous representatives of the district, Congressman Elton Gallegly and Congressman Buck McKeon, and a number of local elected officials from all three valleys (Santa Clarita, Antelope and Simi). The strength of his endorsements and grassroots support, as well as his 2-1 advantage in fundraising, makes Garcia’s campaign the leading contender in the race by a wide margin.
“Michael Bradbury is a nationally recognized and iconic law enforcement figure and I am honored to receive his endorsement,” said Mike Garcia. “I look forward to receiving his counsel as I focus on taking the 25th district back from Katie Hill whose sweet-on-crime policies are funded by a socialist national effort to ignore victims and empower criminals. I will work to carry on the legacy of serious crime fighters like Michael Bradbury.”
Mike Garcia believes in a strong national defense and is a pro-business, pro-taxpayer, political outsider with nearly 20 years of service to this country as one of the first Super Hornet strike fighter pilots in the Navy and is a highly decorated U.S. Naval Officer. Garcia is a first-generation American whose father immigrated to the US in 1959 and has lived in the 25th district for nearly all of his life. Mike Garcia lives in Santa Clarita with his wife and two sons.
The 25th district encompasses the cities of Santa Clarita, Simi Valley, Palmdale, Lancaster and the northern part of the San Fernando Valley. The median income is $76,866 and the ethnic breakdown is 45.8% White, 8% Black, 7.7% Asian and 35.3% Hispanic. The only Democrat, prior to 2018, to carry the district in the last 18 years was Obama, by less than 1%.
