Garcia earned more than 2/3 of the vote over former Rep. Steve Knight
Today, former Navy Fighter Pilot Mike Garcia earned the endorsement of the Los Angeles County Republican Party for the upcoming 25th Congressional district elections, capturing more than two-thirds of the committee’s vote. In winning the endorsement, Garcia defeated former Republican Congressman and longtime Los Angeles politician Steve Knight.
The support of the Los Angeles County Republican Party adds to the tremendous momentum Mike Garcia is gaining across the district. With the endorsements of over 30 current and former elected officials including Governor Pete Wilson and Congressmen Elton Gallegly and Buck McKeon, as well as over 200 veterans and 200 volunteers, Garcia is well-positioned as the top candidate for the upcoming primary and special election in March. Furthermore, as the top Republican fundraiser in the race Garcia has received contributions from over 7,000 donors and will report raising nearly $900,000 since entering into the Congressional race.
“Today’s endorsement is recognition of the hard work our team has done in building a winning grassroots organization, and I am truly humbled by the LA GOP’s support,” said Garcia. “Now is the time for Republicans to unite behind a fighter and a patriot who can win and will bring a strong, new voice to advocate for our district in Washington.”
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 US 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. Garcia lives in Santa Clarita with his wife and two sons. He was recently named to the National Republican Congressional Committee’s Young Guns program as one of the top GOP candidates in the country.
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%.
