“Katie Porter isn’t afraid to go against the grain and do things differently to get results for Californians”
Hurt joins chorus of Democrats, good government advocates, and progressive groups praising Porter’s bid for Senate
CALIFORNIA—Congresswoman and U.S. Senate candidate Katie Porter has been endorsed by Aliso Viejo Mayor Richard Hurt. Hurt joins a chorus of Democrats, good government advocates, and progressive groups praising Porter as the fighter Californians deserve in the U.S. Senate.
“We need a warrior in Washington who will shake up the status quo,” said Hurt. “Katie Porter isn’t afraid to go against the grain and do things differently to get results for Californians. A true public servant, she always puts the people first. I’m proud to endorse her candidacy for the U.S. Senate.”
“I’m proud to have Mayor Hurt’s support,” said Porter. “California needs a Senator who will work closely with local leaders, be present in communities, and verify policies are working on the ground. I look forward to continuing to deliver for California, only now as our state’s next U.S. Senator.”
Porter is the best positioned candidate running to represent California in the U.S. Senate. She leads her Democratic opponents in a majority of surveys released to date of California voters likely to participate in the March 2024 election, including recent polling conducted by the Public Policy Institute of California, Berkeley IGS and Los Angeles Times, the Lee campaign, and the Porter campaign. She has a commanding lead over her Democratic opponents among younger voters, voters of color, and no-party-preference voters, all of whom are expected to turn out in high numbers in 2024.
