Kevin comes from humble beginnings — his mother worked her hands to the bone to provide a better life for him — and he’s focused this campaign on the issues that matter to Californians, like economic security, combating climate change, immigration reform, and Medicare for All.
Our scrappy team works their hearts out every day to spread our positive, progressive message, but the sad truth is money matters in politics.
In order to compete and provide Californians the choice they deserve this November, we don’t need to raise $8 million. We’re relying on folks like you chipping in $8 or $28 dollars at a time to fuel our campaign.
California’s economy is the 5th largest in the world, but it doesn’t work for everyone.
We can’t trust the millionaires and billionaires in Congress to understand what it means to struggle to pay the bills. To breathe the air we breathe. To drink the water we drink.
We need someone in Washington who understands what it means to scrape together every penny to afford car payments, the cost of rent, access to healthcare and student loan bills. We need someone who knows the issues real Californians face each day.

CBS News: Trump defends Putin from claims of election interference
Trump completely failed in his obligation to defend and protect American democracy yesterday. After siding with Putin over our national security and intelligence community, he’s given Putin an invitation to continue his attacks on our elections.
If President Trump won’t act, we must.
Democratic Secretaries of State are on the front lines and it is critical that this November, we elect more Democratic Secretaries who will defend our elections and hold Trump accountable.
*** Kevin de Leon has been endorsed for U.S. Senate by the CDP ***
Never before have we seen an American President degrade our national standing so shamelessly as President Trump did in Helsinki on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Trump can try to backtrack, but he has always defended Russia over our Democracy. With the latest indictments and his own actions in Russia, it’s clear that President Trump has committed treason against the United States.

We need to act.
The Trump administration is moving to eliminate protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions. But David Valadao and other Republicans in Congress are doing nothing to stop it.
In our Central Valley district alone, there are291,000 people(46% of residents!) with pre-existing conditions who rely on the protections outlined in the Affordable Care Act in order to receive affordable health care. We can’t allow Trump or his enablers in Congress to take those protections away.
Do you know anyone with asthma, diabetes, or high blood pressure?
So do I. And if Trump succeeds, big insurance companies can either cancel their insurance plans, deny their coverage outright, or raise their rates through the roof. We can’t let that happen — not on our watch.

SB 17 is working!
Drugmakers across the globe are backing down because of our landmark law to ensure more transparency and accountability from drug corporations. This week, many of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world announced they are canceling plans that would have increased the price of life-saving medication.
This is a huge victory, but it’s only the beginning.
As your Lieutenant Governor, I will continue to lead the fight to make healthcare more affordable and accessible, crack down on big pharmaceutical companies for skyrocketing prescription drug costs, and prioritize California’s working families over corporate interests.
There’s a lot going on right now, and we must be able to multitask.
This week the whole world watched in disbelief as the president sided with Vladimir Putin over American intelligence agencies.
And while we must keep our eyes on Russia and election interference, we can’t lose sight of the children who are still separated from their parents, the attacks on the Affordable Care Act, the Supreme Court fight, and the midterm elections in November.
With that in mind, I wanted to check in with you real quick about your priorities for the weeks and months ahead. I’ve done this from time to time since being elected, and your feedback has been important to my work.
