Dolores Huerta calls Bliatout, “The most substantive candidate and the one that gives Democrats the best chance to beat Devin Nunes.”
Fresno, CA- Civil rights icon, co-founder of the United Farm Workers and lifelong Central Valley resident Dolores Huerta has endorsed Democrat Bobby Bliatout for Congress.
Huerta characterized Bliatout as “smart, honest and empathetic,” saying, “I have fought many fights against the forces of injustice.
