California labor group joins other unions, good government advocates, and progressive groups praising Porter’s run for the U.S. Senate

IRVINE – Congresswoman Katie Porter (D-CA), candidate for U.S. Senate in California, was endorsed today by the California Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, representing over 1,200 affiliated unions in California with over 2.2 million union members across various sectors. The California Labor Federation joins a chorus of other unions, good government advocates, and progressive groups praising Porter’s run for the U.S. Senate. The endorsement decision was made during the California Labor Federation’s Pre-Primary Convention, held on December 4-5 in Oakland, CA.

“California’s union workers keep our state and economy running, and I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the California Labor Federation,” said Porter. “I’m immensely grateful for the support of so many dedicated union members. I’m excited to continue my life-long track record of taking on greedy corporate interests and fighting for the rights of all California workers in the United States Senate.”

Porter has been a consistent champion for workers throughout her time in Congress. Along with the California Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, Rep. Porter has also earned the support of the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW), the Communications Workers of America (District 9), IBEW Local 441, IBEW Local 180, IBEW Local 569, and Adjunct Faculty United AFT Local 6106. 

Rep. Katie Porter is running for the U.S. Senate to represent all Californians and unrig the Washington status quo. In poll after poll, Porter is the only candidate who consistently advances to a general election, finishing first or second in all surveys released to date of California voters likely to participate in the March 2024 primary. Porter also has a commanding lead over her Democratic opponents among younger voters, Latino voters, and progressives – all of whom are expected to turn out in high numbers in 2024.
