David Valadao (CA-22)
In 2020, David Valadao won back a Congressional seat in the San Joaquin Valley around Kern County, after losing in 2018. He did so campaigning as a different sort of Republican, featuring Dreamers in his campaign ads and talking about the need for immigration reform. And in 2021 voted with Democrats for the Dream and Promise Act which would have put Dreamers and farmworkers on a pathway to citizenship. However, Rep. Valadao has been largely silent as his party has embraced dangerous, racist conspiracies and lies about the election.
