Wendy Carrillo’s campaign announced today that Congressman Jimmy Gomez (D-34) has endorsed Wendy Carrillo for Assembly, in the seat he held prior to his election to Congress.

“Wendy Carrillo will make an excellent Assemblymember for the people I represented in the California State Legislature,” said Congressman Gomez. “She is a proven working-class progressive who understands that she must represent everyone in the 51st District. With the Trump Administration continuing to target our communities, I know Wendy will be a champion for our families in the fight for quality education, better healthcare, affordable housing, high wage jobs and protecting our most vulnerable residents including women, seniors, and immigrants. Wendy has been fighting for our communities her entire life and is my choice to represent us in the State Assembly.”

Congressman Gomez’s key endorsement comes on the heels of Carrillo’s first-place finish among a field of 13 candidates in the October 3rd Primary.

Wendy Carrillo said: “I am truly honored to have the strong support of Congressman Jimmy Gomez, a lifelong progressive and champion for our most vulnerable Californians. Congressman Gomez served the people of Assembly District 51 with passion and integrity and, if elected, I look forward to continuing to work with Congressman Gomez in standing up for working families and immigrants, and making their issues a top priority in the State Assembly.”
