Democrat Chris Bubser Wins Endorsement of Bend The Arc: Jewish Action PAC
June 12, Victorville, CA - The campaign of Democrat Chris Bubser (CA-08) announced today that Bend The Arc: Jewish Action PAC has endorsed her campaign for Congress in California’s 8th District.
“We are proud to back Chris Bubser’s campaign for congress,” said Derek Pugh, Director of Bend the Arc Jewish Action PAC. “She is a champion for our values to hold this nation to its promise of justice and equality for all. We know that she will be a passionate advocate for economic equality and the adoption of fair and humane and immigration policies. As a member of the Jewish community, Chris personally understands that many American Jews would not be in this country if current immigration policies had been in place when our families sought opportunity and refuge here.”
“I am proud to receive the support of Bend the Arc,” said Bubser. “This campaign is all about putting people first, ensuring we are giving them the opportunity to succeed, and holding leaders to account when we see injustice.” She added, “Time and time again, my opponent Jay Obernolte is swinging hard to defeat policies that help the greatest number of our CA-08 families. During this pandemic his positions look increasingly reckless and to the right of many of his GOP colleagues. He is anti-vaccination, he votes against banning surprise emergency room bills and expanding sick leave during a public health crisis.
“I also strongly believe that immigrants are a benefit to our country and will work to enact practical legislation to provide a clear pathway to citizenship for hardworking, tax-paying immigrants and guaranteeing the same rights, obligations and basic fairness for all workers, no matter where they come from.”
Bend the Arc organizes the Jewish community across America to transform our country to be inclusive, equitable, and supportive of the dignity of every person across race, class, gender and faith.
