CHRIS BUBSER WINS ENDORSEMENT OF NATIONAL WOMEN’S POLITICAL CAUCUS
Non-Partisan Group Supports Women Running for Public Office
January 22, Victorville, CA -- The campaign of Chris Bubser, Democrat running for Congress in California’s 8th district, announced today that she has received the endorsement of the National Women’s Political Caucus. The National Women’s Political Caucus (NWPC) is a multi-partisan grassroots organization dedicated to increasing women’s participation in the political process at all levels of government. Bubser is the only woman in the race for CA-08.
“The National Women’s Political Caucus is proud to endorse Chris Bubser for Congress,” said NWPC President, Donna Lent. “We thank her for taking the bold step to run for public office and for her commitment to NWPC's mission to advance gender equality and protect a woman's right to choose. We know that Chris will make achieving equal rights for women, access to comprehensive women’s healthcare and child and other dependent care programs a priority when she represents California’s 8th District.”
“I am so proud to have earned the endorsement of the NWPC, an organization that is encouraging and supporting women to run at all levels of government,” said Chris. “As a working mother, I understand the challenges our families face and know that when we lift up women, we lift up families.”
Bubser is the only woman in a field of nine candidates running in CA-08. In sharp contrast to Bubser, Tim Donnelly--the leading GOP candidate--doesn’t even support ensuring basic maternal healthcare for all women, a fundamental need that benefits all working families. And Republican Assemblyman Jay Obernolte voted against a bill that would prohibit employers from discriminating or retaliating against an employee because of their status as a victim of sexual harassment.
The 8th congressional district stretches along much of California’s eastern border, and includes parts of San Bernardino County, and all of Inyo and Mono counties. The district includes, among others, the communities of Adelanto, Apple Valley, Barstow, Bishop, Hesperia, Highland, Lone Pine, Mammoth Lakes, Needles, Trona, Twentynine Palms, Victorville, Yucaipa, and Yucca Valley, and Joshua Tree and Death Valley National Parks.
