Rodolfo for Congress - Text Rodolfo to 41411 for updates

Dr. Rodolfo Cortes Barragan, a child development research scientist, is the only challenger to 13-term incumbent Democratic Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard for the upcoming General Election in California's 40th Congressional District. He is running to promote a Green New Deal to employ the population, promote social justice, and reverse global climate change. 

CA District 40, the most Chicano District in the country, encompasses East and Southeast Los Angeles. For 55 years, it has long been represented by the Roybal family in Congress. Yet, the quality of life for every day people has plummeted. The Exide Battery plant poisoned large segments of the District. Currently, factories in Paramount are poisoning a whole new generation of families.

We need a bold new direction for East and Southeast Los Angeles, as well as for the human species more generally. Neither the Democrats nor the Republicans are capable of pushing for the kind of change that we need. We must break the two-party system if we are to save ourselves and our descendants from the deadly effects of the corporate state.

    “I am very proud Dr. Cortes-Barragan is challenging establishment trash, because people are dying of cancer, birth defects, and teachers also with cancer in the 40th District. Opt out of the logical fallacy "false dilemma" (voting red or blue) they don't care about you! The health of inhabitants living in the 40th will not be compromised due to corruption. If everyone living in the 40th District gave .25cents we could get ride of the trash. Jesus would vote for Dr. Cortes-Barragan because he was anti-establishment, he have a message of peace, healing, and freedom. No more wars is a message of peace, a Green New Deal is a message of healing and $15 minimum wage, free college, a path to citizenship is a message of freedom! It's time to take on the establishment whether your red, blue or unsure. Dr. Cortes-Barragan is the best antidote to the parasite of the establishment”

Our opponent is vulnerable. Can you pitch in?

Friends, 

Our establishment opponent feels very comfortable in her seat: She has less than 60k in the bank. She is not planning a serious campaign. We can win. 

Can you pitch in with another contribution? Your dollars go very far in our low-turnout District. It's us vs. the failed establishment. No other challengers. 

Thank you for your support. 

Rodolfo

BIG, BIG NEWS!

BIG NEWS! Thanks to your support and the signature work of our volunteers, we have officially made it on the ballot!...And that’s not all!

BIGGER NEWS YET! We are the ONLY campaign that filed to run against the 13-term Democratic incumbent. That means we will automatically advance beyond California’s “top-two” primary. We will appear on the general election ballot in November.

OUR PATH FORWARD Mrs. Roybal-Allard, the incumbent, cannot stand on her record. In an 86% Latino District that wants Trump out, she has twice voted against Trump’s impeachment. Every voter who hears about that pledges to vote her out. Looking to her past, she could have done a lot to shut down the Exide battery plant that made our District a textbook example of environmental racism. Yet, she stood by for 20 years and and did nothing. Every voter who is made aware of her negligence pledges to vote her out.

Despite here seniority, Mrs. Roybal-Allard is actually one of the most vulnerable Members of Congress. She has never faced a serious challenge, much less a challenge from the left. Moreover, as the DNC and DCCC struggles to fundraise, she is contributing a lot of her own money to less established Democrats who are fighting off primary challenges. She is not prepared to fight back in her own District.

People here are drying from lack of access to housing, healthcare, food, and clean water. The community needs radical change. We only need around 5,000 votes to hear from us around three times. It’s a winnable race.

We got this! Thanks for your support.
