“Tonight’s results are a testament to the fact that our message of getting our economy back on track and ensuring the security of California families is resonating with our district. I’m grateful to CA-27 voters for giving me the opportunity to earn their vote in November and continue fighting for them in Washington, D.C.
“Our country is at a crossroads with a number of critical challenges staring us down. Inflation is out of control, and local families are struggling to afford trips to the grocery store and the gas station. Cost of living and gas taxes continue to increase. And crime is on the rise as chaos continues abroad. The American Dream is evaporating for California families. Make no mistake – we cannot afford Joe Biden and Christy Smith’s failed progressive agenda.
“It’s been my honor to serve California families for two years, and if they give me the opportunity, I will continue giving my all for them each and every day — working to fight back against the kind of politics that have put so many working families in this mess. Let’s get to work and win in November.”
