PCCC is proud to endorse Katie Porter (CA-45)

We're thrilled to announce our support for Katie Porter (CA-45), one of our first bold progressive endorsements for Congress in the 2018 cycle.

Katie is the lead consumer watchdog in the state of California, as appointed by Kamala Harris. She has worked with Elizabeth Warren for 18 years, since she was a student in Warren's bankruptcy class. Katie and Senator Warren worked together to study families in bankruptcy and who were being cheated by banks, and have co-authored two books and testified side by side in Congress. She is someone who has been putting her activism for working families into practice for 20 years now.

We’re endorsing Katie because she is an authentic, gut-level economic populist who is instinctively on the side of working people and will inspire voters. Katie is the Elizabeth Warren of California, and when she’s elected, she’ll be the Elizabeth Warren of the House.

With her years of work as California's top consumer advocate, Katie knows the struggle of working families in California and will fight effectively for big ideas like Medicare for All, holding the Big Banks accountable, expanding Social Security, making housing affordable, and raising worker wages.

As Republicans embrace Trump as the face of their party, we need inspiring progressives like Katie to be the face of the Democratic Party in order to take back the House in 2018.

“I'm proud to have the endorsement of the PCCC. This race comes down to trust -- who can Orange County families trust to stand up to Donald Trump, his billionaire cabinet, and the powerful special interests who control Washington. I've spent my career taking on powerful corporate interests and big banks who cheat families, and I'll fight just as hard for all our families in Washington.” -- Katie Porter
