SANTA ANA, CA— Driving new momentum into his campaign to represent California’s 46th Congressional District seat, today former State Senator Lou Correa received a sought-after endorsement from Congresswoman Karen Bass.

She also serves on the Steering and Policy Committee which sets the policy direction of the House’s Democratic Caucus.

Congresswoman Karen Bass announced her support of former Senator Lou Correa by releasing the following statement:

“Unlike any other state in the nation, California has been a real leader when it comes to creating new 21st century jobs, safeguarding workers’ rights, expanding equality for women and men, promoting a clean energy agenda, and advancing immigrant rights policies. In the State Legislature, Lou Correa built up an extensive resume of working on these important issues and many more. He’s highly qualified and well-equipped to serve in Congress. Lou Correa has my full support.”
