ELK GROVE, CA - Today, California Governor Jerry Brown endorsed Rep. Ami Bera for U.S. Congress.
Brown, who historically makes few political endorsements, is backing Bera in California’s hotly contested 7th Congressional district.
"The country needs a Congress that works and leaders who will fight to break the gridlock in Washington. I am strongly endorsing Doctor Ami Bera because he will get things done."
Bera’s office has helped thousands of Sacramento residents, including helping hundreds of veterans get the benefits they've earned. In Congress, Bera is working to strengthen Medicare and Social Security, protect women’s access to healthcare, and help veterans get the services they need.
“I believe that Congress should be a place of service where I’m fighting for the things that matter to Sacramento families, which is why I’m honored to receive the endorsement of Governor Brown, who has shown a lifelong commitment to public service,” said Rep. Ami Bera.
The suburban Sacramento County district includes Folsom, Citrus Heights, Rancho Cordova, Carmichael, Sacramento, and Elk Grove.
