The Candidates

Over the last few years, the most extreme wing of the party has captured the GOP, which means that every Republican candidate is helping to empower the extremism at the center of their party.

Many Republican candidates pretend they will be good stewards of our communities’ safety and prosperity while at the same time looking to benefit off people’s fears and anxieties. They would deny citizenship, block all refugees, and waste billions more on failed ideas. Hoping most voters ignore the radicalization that has led the Republican party to embrace white nationalist conspiracy theories that have been deadly to our communities.

Ken Calvert (CA-41)

Rep. Ken Calvert has been in Congress since 1993 and is looking to hold on to this puzzle piece-shaped district in southern California. Calvert voted against certifying the election despite the violent attack on the Capital and the complete lack of evidence of fraud.
