Democrats and independents in Orange County need to know:
Dave Min is making desperate, false and sexist attacks against Katie Porter in order to cover up his own record siding with corporate interests.
Min has resorted to questioning Katie’s professional accomplishments, even though she is a UC Irvine Law Professor and nationally-respected consumer protection attorney.
Katie has been endorsed by Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren because she took on the big banks and won $18 billion in relief for California families.
But one of Dave Min’s biggest sources of campaign contributions are these very same Wall Street banks, like Goldman Sachs.
And Min has joined Mimi Walters and the big insurance companies in opposing Medicare for All.
Katie Porter is a progressive champion and is the only candidate in the race who rejects campaign contributions from big banks, big oil, the NRA, and the people who work there.
Katie Porter is a UC Irvine law professor, middle-class mother, and consumer advocate who has spent decades taking on the big banks that hurt middle-class families – and winning. Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren have endorsed Katie because they know she'll hold Donald Trump and powerful special interests accountable, fight for Medicare for All, and always protect a woman’s right to choose.
Where Mimi Walters has fallen short, Katie Porter can lead:
- Mimi Walters has repeatedly stood with Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans in their efforts to defund Planned Parenthood and ban a woman’s right to choose. Katie Porter will always protect a woman’s right to choose and believes that women’s health care and birth control are human rights.
- Mimi Walters took tens of thousands of dollars from the NRA and has voted to loosen gun safety laws every time she had the chance, including voting to make it easier for the dangerously mentally ill to purchase guns. Katie Porter will work to enact common-sense gun safety laws, such as universal background checks and a ban on military-style weapons.
- Mimi Walters was one of the chief architects of the failed Republican health care plan that would have increased premiums and ended protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Katie Porter believes healthcare is a right and supports a Medicare for All approach in which every American has access to affordable health insurance.
