Democratic Champions Stand with
Jim Costa for Congress

State and local Democratic leaders and organizations are praising Costa’s vision, leadership and record of getting things done – and are endorsing him early and unequivocally for re-election.

Congressman Jim Costa (D-Fresno) has racked up endorsements from top Democratic champions, underscoring his momentum and status as the clear choice for Congress.

Costa, who was most recently re-elected to Congress by a decisive 15% margin over his opponent in November 2018, has been riding a steady wave of support from key Democratic leaders at the local and state levels, including:

  • Governor Gavin Newsom
  • Lt. Governor Eleni Kounalakis
  • US Senator Dianne Feinstein
  • US Senator Kamala Harris
  • Attorney General Xavier Becerra
  • Congressman Adam Schiff, Chair of the House Intelligence Committee
  • Fresno County’s Democratic Women in Action Club
  • Equality PAC

Here’s what some of these bold Democrats have to say about Jim Costa:

Attorney General Xavier Becerra: “Having served in the US Congress with Jim Costa, I have witnessed firsthand his firm commitment to finding a pathway to citizenship, protecting our DREAMers and ensuring all immigrants can live in our great nation free from fear and with dignity. Jim has been on the frontlines in the fight to protect our immigrant communities and will continue to be a key partner of mine as we take on the Trump Administration’s dangerous, anti-immigrant policies. Jim Costa is the clear choice to represent the Central Valley in Congress during these tumultuous times, and I strongly endorse him for re-election.”

Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA): “Jim Costa has the courage to take on the challenges facing our nation and democracy. Jim will stand up to the Trump Administration, demand accountability and ensure we protect the integrity of our elections. Jim’s commitment and strong record of standing up for our shared American values makes him the best choice to continue representing the people of the Central Valley, and I’m pleased to give him my full endorsement.”

U.S. Senator Kamala Harris: “Jim has been a reliable partner and I have seen, up close, his work for the Central Valley’s residents, to ensure they have clean and reliable water and affordable and accessible health care. I look forward to continue to work with him to ensure the voices of farmers and producers in the Central Valley and across the country are uplifted and heard.

Jim Costa has one of the most accomplished records of delivering results for the Valley while serving as a steady voice for our core Democratic values. He has fought tirelessly for the rights of immigrants, the LGBTQ community, and other historically marginalized groups; pioneered critical gun safety legislation; supports the impeachment of Donald Trump, and has delivered over $290 million in funding for water improvements and over $300 million for veterans’ services, expanded access to higher education, and improved access to healthcare.

The Primary election will be held on March 3, 2020.
