Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) today announced his endorsement of Congressman Mike Garcia in California’s 27th Congressional District. Garcia is set to defend the seat he won in a May 2020 special election in what is expected to be one of the most competitive races in the country.
“Much like myself, Mike Garcia has lived the American Dream,” Scott said. “A first-generation American, Mike has proudly served his country in combat as a fighter pilot and now in Congress. As we face record inflation, a push to defund the police in the midst of a crime surge, and mounting threats from our enemies abroad, it is crucial that we take back the House. That mission starts in California’s 27th District. Mike is a fighter for the security and prosperity of California families, and he has my full support.”
“I am thrilled to have the endorsement of Senator Tim Scott, a leader in the conservative caucus and someone who embodies firsthand the power of the American Dream,” said Garcia. “There’s no doubt our country is at a crossroads, with progressive policies hurting working families at home and putting our national security at risk overseas. It’s clear that today, more than ever, we need fighters in Washington to bring back a government that has lost its way — and I look forward to continuing that mission alongside Senator Scott.”
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. A first-generation American whose father immigrated to the US in 1959, Garcia is a highly decorated US Naval Officer and successful businessman. Born in Granada Hills, he has lived in the 27th District for nearly all of his life. Garcia lives in Santa Clarita with his wife and two sons. He was elected to Congress on May 12, 2020, winning a Special Election with 55% and becoming the first California Republican to flip a Democrat seat since 1998.
The new 27th District encompasses the cities of Santa Clarita, Palmdale, Lancaster and Granada Hills. The ethnic breakdown is 44.9% White, 10.6% Black, 9.5% Asian and 33.3% Hispanic.
