“She consistently shows up for and listens to her community, and she fights to deliver real results”
Kim 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 Irvine, CA Vice Mayor Tammy Kim. Kim joins a chorus of Democrats, good government advocates, and progressive groups praising Porter as the warrior Californians need in the U.S. Senate.
“I’m thrilled Katie is running for the U.S. Senate,” said Kim. “She consistently shows up for and listens to her community, and she fights to deliver real results. We’ve worked together to combat the surge of anti-Asian racism in Orange County, and she helped secure additional resources for community-based approaches to guard against hate crimes. All Californians deserve a leader who will have their backs in Washington, and that leader is Katie Porter.”
“I’m proud to have Tammy’s endorsement,” said Porter. “Together, we’ve worked to support Orange County’s small businesses, improve community safety, and push back against the recent, unacceptable surge in hate against Asian Americans in Southern California. I’m eager to continue partnering with state and local leaders as our state’s next Senator.”
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.
