KATIE PORTER’S STATEMENT ON HER DEMOCRATIC OPPONENT'S SECOND NEGATIVE TV AD
Irvine -- Leading congressional candidate Katie Porter today made the following statement about a second negative campaign ad released by one of her Democratic opponents in CA-45:
"In a last-ditch, desperate attempt to make it through the primary on June 5th, one of my Democratic opponents has resorted to Trump like tactics of running not only one, but two false and misleading attack ads about our campaign.
"In addition to running an ad mischaracterizing the five million members of EMILY's List, an organization dedicated to electing Democratic women to office, as "Washington Insiders" and "Special Interests," he has resorted to questioning my professional credentials - a sexist attack that is all too common in politics.
"This type of campaigning has no place in the Democratic party. I am calling on Dave Min and the California Democratic Party to denounce these misleading ads and take them down immediately. Orange County voters deserve better."
