Wendy Carrillo’s campaign announced today that Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) has endorsed her candidacy for the 51st Assembly District.

“I am proud to endorse Wendy Carrillo for State Assembly,” said Senator Lara. “Wendy has fought on behalf of workers who care for seniors and people with disabilities, a fight which brought her to the frontlines of the battle for healthcare for all. Wendy has been a champion for access to quality healthcare, and if elected she will continue being a key partner in our fight to deliver universal healthcare for all Californians. We need Wendy in the State Assembly.”

Carrillo placed first in the October 3rd Special Primary Election. The General Election for Assembly District 51 will be held on December 5.

Carrillo said: “I am honored to receive Senator Lara’s strong support. Senator Lara and I share the belief that healthcare is a right, not a privilege, and that no Californian should have to sacrifice their health and well-being simply because they cannot afford quality healthcare. As a legislator, I am looking forward to continuing to partner with Senator Lara in ensuring all Californians have access to quality healthcare.”

Senator Lara is the latest to endorse Carrillo, joining the California Democratic Party, the California Latino Legislative Caucus, Congressman Jimmy Gomez and Senate President pro Tem Kevin De León in supporting Carrillo to be AD 51’s next Assemblymember.
