Below is a statement from former U.S. Naval Officer Mike Garcia:

“While the extreme liberals in Washington hold hostage the Congressional agenda so they can push their socialist policies, America seeks to move forward to a more prosperous economy and safer nation. Unfortunately, Christy Smith being endorsed by these very Democrats and extreme liberals in her run for Congress will offer nothing but the same. Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats have shown they cannot handle the Constitutional authority they have while holding the Majority. Winners look toward the next race and not the last. We need to let the voters decide in November 2020. As we look toward the next election, it’s time for new leadership in Congress and to get America back on track.”


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 40 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%.
