“She doesn’t just accept the way things are; she fights tooth and nail to deliver real change”
Petrie-Norris 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 was today endorsed by California Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris. Petrie-Norris joins a chorus of Democrats, good government advocates, and progressive groups praising Porter as the warrior Californians need in the U.S. Senate.
“Katie has been a breath of fresh air for Orange County. In her four years in Congress, she has consistently listened to our families and been present in our community,” said Petrie-Norris. “She doesn’t just accept the way things are; she fights tooth and nail to deliver real change for her constituents. Californians will benefit from her honest leadership working for all of us in Washington.”
“I’m grateful to earn Cottie’s support,” said Porter. “We’ve worked together to deliver real results for families, from making Orange County more resilient to the climate crisis to supporting our small businesses. I’m excited to continue standing up for our community, only now in the U.S. Senate.”
Porter has received widespread praise from Democrats, good government advocates, progressive groups, and pundits since announcing her candidacy for the U.S. Senate. Led by a team of seasoned campaign veterans from across the state, her campaign raised an eye-popping $4.5 million in the first quarter of 2023 and the most small dollar donations of any candidate running for the U.S. Senate from California.
Porter’s campaign also released a poll of California voters likely to participate in the 2024 election for U.S. Senate. It shows Porter has a double-digit lead in a likely top-two general election contest if it were held today. In a head-to-head matchup, Porter leads significantly among Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. The same survey shows Porter would be the likely top finisher from a June primary contest with other potential Republican and Democratic candidates. You can read the poll memo here.
