CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS CHRIS BUBSER COMMITS TO FOLLOWING FACTS AND SCIENCE IN BATTLE TO END PANDEMIC
Death Toll Tips over 1 Million worldwide, 200K in the U.S., & 15k in California
September 30, Victorville, CA - As the death toll from the Coronavirus reaches another grim milestone, Democratic candidate Chris Bubser is reminding voters that our country will only conquer the virus by following the guidance of the nation’s leading scientists. Bubser is running for the open seat in CA-08.
“This is what comes from sacrificing science for party politics,” said Bubser. “People are losing jobs, businesses, and loved ones. This is a tragic dereliction of duty that is appalling and this magnitude of loss was avoidable.”
Buser added, “How many more people have to succumb to this epidemic before Jay Obernolte starts putting the public’s health ahead of politics? He is anti-vaccination despite a vaccine being the best chance we have to return to some level of normalcy. I support making a vaccine free, when available.”
Obernolte has a disturbing record of denying the science of COVID-19. Earlier this year he refused to wear a mask while sitting next to a pregnant colleague. In addition, he called a representation of Coronavirus data from John Hopkins “scare tactics”, recklessly downplaying the threat of danger to his constituents.
Bubser is a veteran of the Biotechnology industry and spent decades working with scientists and medical researchers to bring new medications to market to treat diseases like cancer and HIV. Having worked on the frontline of the AIDS epidemic, Chris has the experience we need to take on COVID-19. Bubser’s mother passed away from COVID-19 on Mothers Day, just as the country was approaching 100K deaths.
