Bryan Caforio Promises to Fight for Medicare for All
Washington Republicans Highlight Caforio’s Support of Healthcare for All Americans
Santa Clarita, Calif. – With today's misleading attacks against Bryan Caforio, Washington Republicans revealed just how concerned they are about vulnerable incumbent Steve Knight's reelection chances in the face of his disastrous vote for Trumpcare. Amazingly, in their attempt to attack Bryan, the NRCC inadvertently highlighted a cornerstone of Caforio's campaign: Medicare for All. In what can only be seen as an attempt to mislead voters about Bryan's promise to fight for high-quality healthcare for everyone, Washington Republicans are lying, claiming Caforio has been “silent” on healthcare.
Far from trying to hide his position, Caforio stood outside Knight’s office last week with Planned Parenthood, SEIU, and other patients' advocates and promised to fight for Medicare for All. Caforio also released a statement in support of Medicare for All. We know Washington Republicans only read Twitter these days, so we assumed they had at least seen Bryan's tweet in support of Medicare for All.
Nicole DeMont, Bryan Caforio’s campaign manager, said, “In an amazing sign of desperation, Washington Republicans today claimed that Bryan Caforio has been silent on healthcare, all while Bryan is traveling to every corner of the 25th District championing Medicare for All. Since Republicans know Knight can't beat Bryan on the issue of healthcare, their only option is to lie and claim that Bryan hasn't been fighting for real solutions. Perhaps if Steve Knight didn’t lock his office door whenever constituents come to his office, he might have actually heard Bryan himself promising to fight for high-quality healthcare for every American.”
The son of two public school teachers, Caforio was born and raised in Southern California, attended UCLA and Yale Law School, worked for a United States federal judge, and practices as an attorney taking on some of the world’s biggest banks and corporations. Bryan lives in Santa Clarita with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
California’s 25th Congressional District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County, including the Santa Clarita Valley, Antelope Valley, and Simi Valley. Hillary Clinton won the district by more than six points in 2016, registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans, and the district is majority-minority. The district is now considered a “toss-up” and is held by Tea Party Republican Steve Knight, whom national Republicans have publicly identified as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
