DFA Congratulates Rep. Katie Porter On ‘Decisive’ Victory
Rep. Katie Porter just beat back her 2020 Republican challenger to hold on to the seat she flipped in California’s 45th Congressional district back in 2018.
DFA Chair Charles Chamberlain on Rep. Katie Porter's 2020 victory:
“Rep. Katie Porter’s decisive victory in her bid for reelection is a testament to her tenacious advocacy for the working families that call California’s 45th home, and is a powerful example of the role that progressive leaders are playing in flipping and keeping former Republican strongholds blue.
“A champion or progressive causes like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal during her first term in office, Rep. Porter breathed new life into Congressional hearings with her trusty white board and the no-nonsense lines of questioning and brought her desperately needed lived-experiences with her when she became Congress’ only single mom.
“Whether she was demystifying the Democratic process for everyday Americans and shedding new light on some of our country’s most pressing issues, Rep. Katie Porter has made a national name for herself standing up for her constituents and we couldn’t be more honored, or excited, to know that we’ll be able to continue fighting alongside her in Congress.” -- Charles Chamberlain, Chair, Democracy for America
