There a lot of crucial races on the ballot next week. But while State Attorney General’s races don’t always get the most attention, they’re one of the most important.
With the power to sue the Trump administration, Democratic state Attorneys General are on the frontlines of the resistance against President Trump. And as the Attorney General of our nation’s most populous state, Xavier Becerra is leading the charge.
Hopefully, Democrats will win back Congress on Tuesday, allowing us to stop President Trump’s disastrous legislative agenda.
But even if we succeed, we know President Trump will double down on harmful executive orders that discriminate against our communities and strip away our rights.
Federal agencies will keep trying to roll back Obama-era rules that protect our planet, make health care more affordable and safeguard civil rights.
No matter what happens in Congress, we need strong Democratic Attorney Generals like Xavier who can keep fighting back in court whenever President Trump tries to bypass Congress and attack our families.
