“Porter is the champion working people need in Washington”

IRVINE—Congresswoman and U.S. Senate candidate Katie Porter (D-CA) has been endorsed by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA), AFL-CIO, which represents nearly 50,000 flight attendants at 19 airlines across the U.S. AFA-CWA joins a chorus of Democrats, good government advocates, and progressive groups endorsing Porter’s bid for Senate.

“I’m thrilled to receive the endorsement of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, a leading voice for tens of thousands of workers across our state and country,” said Porter. “Flight attendants connect our communities, keep our economy running, and help make sure we’re safe in the skies. They deserve a champion in the U.S. Senate who can’t be bought to look the other way when greedy corporations try to cheat workers or consumers.”

“Katie Porter is the champion working people need in Washington. Her entire career, Katie has stood up to giant corporations that try to take advantage of workers and consumers,” said Sara Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA. “I was proud to work with Katie to demand corporate accountability during the pandemic and promote workers first initiatives at every turn. She’s demanded answers from corporations and government alike, and fought to better protect workers on the job. Katie will energize the electorate that will make a huge difference up and down the ballot in November.” 

“In the Senate, Katie will shake up the status quo and deliver what everyday Californians need – from lower costs to higher wages. We fly with Katie when she goes to work or comes home from DC. It’s exciting to chat with her in seat 22B, or watch her fighting for us in Congress, wielding a whiteboard like no one before to eviscerate greedy banks, pharmaceutical companies or anyone who makes billions by making it harder for our families to survive. The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA is proud to endorse Katie Porter for Senate,” Nelson continued.

Katie Porter is running for the U.S. Senate to shake up the status quo in Washington and unrig the rules bought and paid for by corporate special interests. The only candidate in the race to reject federal lobbyist money and swear off corporate PAC checks since Day 1 of running for office, Porter is the warrior Californians can trust to speak truth to power and hold greedy corporations, special interests, and government bureaucrats – of both parties – accountable.
