War Veterans Fund PAC selects Garcia as one of only six candidates to support
On Tuesday, January 14, The War Veterans Fund PAC endorsed former U.S. Navy Fighter Pilot Mike Garcia for Congress. Garcia was chosen to be one of only six candidates nationwide the group will support. The War Veterans Fund PAC “is dedicated to electing first-time Republican U.S. House candidates who are military veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq”. In 2018, the group supported six first-time Republican U.S. House candidates including now-Congressmen Dan Crenshaw (TX-02) and Mike Waltz (FL-06).
“Mike is exactly the kind of conservative Iraq/Afghanistan war veteran we need in the Republican Party and in the U.S. House of Representatives,” said Edward Crawford, War Veterans Fund Coordinator.
The War Veterans Fund PAC joins other nationally-recognized veterans groups such as SEAL PAC and Combat Veterans for Congress as well as over 200 military veterans in support of Mike Garcia’s candidacy for Congress. Started in the 2018 election cycle, the group has already proven successful in supporting and providing resources to first-time Republican veterans’ House campaigns.
“Our nation needs more veterans who served on the battlefield to go to Congress and be citizen legislators,” commented Mike Garcia. “I am humbled to have the support of the War Veterans Fund PAC as we advance toward victory on March 3.”
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%.
