KATIE PORTER EARNS MOMS DEMAND ACTION GUN SENSE CANDIDATE DISTINCTION

Irvine -- Leading congressional candidate Katie Porter today announced that her campaign earned the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction

“Orange County families have made their feelings heard, time and again, that common-sense gun protections are our values,” said Katie Porter. “As a mother of three, I am proud to stand with Moms Demand Action and honored to earn the Gun Sense Candidate Distinction. Now is the time to fight for common-sense gun laws. That is why I am running for Congress - to stand up to special interests like the NRA and stand up for Orange County families.”

Later today, Katie Porter will join leading Democratic congressional candidates across the country to deliver nearly 40,000 signatures asking Rep. Mimi Walters to stand up for her constituents by refusing all money from the NRA and supporting common-sense gun laws -- including universal background checks, bans on assault weapons, and high-capacity clips.

Katie has not only refused to accept money from the NRA, she has pledged since day one of her campaign not to accept campaign contributions from corporate PACs, big banks, big oil, big pharma, or private charter schools. She is proudly endorsed by End Citizens United, a grassroots organization dedicated to countering the disastrous effects of Citizens United and reforming our campaign finance system.

Katie earned early endorsements from Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren and was the first House challenger to receive the endorsement from EMILY’s List.

Katie Porter is a UC Irvine Professor of Law, middle-class mother of three, and consumer advocate who has spent decades taking on the big banks that hurt middle-class families – and winning. Now, she's taking that fight against the powerful special interests to Washington.
