Dear Democrat,

My name is Dr. Asif Mahmood, and I hope to earn your endorsement for California Insurance Commissioner during the convention in San Diego! I’m sure you’re getting emails from a bunch of different candidates, but let me tell you why I’m different.

I was raised in rural Pakistan. Growing up, my school did not have a roof, let alone chairs or desks.

I’ve based my life’s work on a single principle taught to me by my parents: that helping others is our highest calling. It’s why I became a doctor, and why I’m running for Insurance Commissioner.

As a doctor of internal medicine, I’ve seen my patients’ struggles – ranging from insurance coverage issues, prescription drug issues, in- and out-of-network issues, follow-up issues, and support beyond medical care.

I am proud to say that I’ve never asked for reimbursement from any patient who didn’t have insurance.

Because of my years of experience, I’m the best person to serve Californians as Insurance Commissioner. I’ll take on Pharmaceutical companies that are putting profits before people, and support Medicare for All. That’s why I REFUSE to take contributions from insurance companies or pharmaceuticals.

I’ll protect women’s health and reproductive rights against GOP attacks, ensure that Californians have improved access to affordable mental healthcare, and make sure all children can get medical treatment regardless of immigration status.

Will you join me in the fight to stand up for Californians against the insurance companies that are nickel-and-diming them?

I look forward to speaking with each of you at the convention in San Diego. If you would like to learn more about me, please visit
