“Katie Porter is the forward-thinking, no-nonsense leader Californians deserve in the U.S. Senate”
Lee 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 Assemblymember Alex Lee, who represents the South Bay communities of Fremont, Newark, Sunol, Milpitas, and parts of western San Jose in the State Assembly. Lee joins a chorus of Democrats, good government advocates, and progressive groups praising Porter as the warrior Californians need in the U.S. Senate.
“Katie Porter is the forward-thinking, no-nonsense leader Californians deserve in the U.S. Senate,” said Assemblymember Alex Lee. “She can’t be bought to look the other way when corporations try to rig the system against us and our futures. From investing in housing to combatting the climate crisis, Katie is championing the issues that matter most to everyday Californians, especially those in the South Bay. I’m proud to endorse her and her next-generation candidacy for the U.S. Senate.”
“Alex Lee is a progressive champion,” said Porter. “The son of immigrants, youngest Asian American, and first openly bisexual state legislator in California history, Alex is a trailblazer who’s made an undeniable mark on the Golden State. A tireless advocate, he understands the urgent need to send a warrior to the U.S. Senate who will stick up for Californians and push back against the corporate special interests that dominate DC. I’m honored to have his support.”
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 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.
