“Katie has proven she’s not afraid to hold government’s feet to the fire”
Newman 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 California State Senator Josh Newman. Newman 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 pleased to endorse Katie Porter’s campaign for the United States Senate,” said Newman. “Among her many strengths, Katie has been a fierce advocate for veterans, servicemembers, and military families. Katie has proven she’s not afraid to hold government’s feet to the fire to do right by military families, as well as all Californians. I’m proud to be supporting Katie and know that she‘ll serve California well as our state’s next U.S. Senator.”
“I’m honored to have Senator Newman’s support,” said Porter. “As an Army veteran and champion for military families, he understands the urgent need to hold government accountable to its promises, including those made to our servicemembers, veterans, and their loved ones. As California’s next Senator, I’ll continue pushing government to deliver on behalf of families.”
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 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.
