Why you should support Jimmy Gomez

I am running to replace Congressman Xavier Becerra for the 34th Congressional District in Los Angeles, California. I hope to continue Congressman Becerra’s excellent record of representation, and continue to move forward our joint agenda of advocating for working families, protecting the most vulnerable among us, and standing up to the corporate interests trying to game the system.

We have a fight on our hands. It’s a fight for our values, our rights, and our future. I believe we must run towards this fight, not away from it. I am running for Congress to take on Donald Trump and resist his agenda.

I hope you will join me and support my campaign!

-Jimmy Gomez

Candidate for the 34th Congressional District

Current Assemblymember for the 51st District
