SAN PEDRO, CA—Taking nothing for granted in her pursuit to fill the seat of California’s new 44th Congressional District, today Congresswoman Janice Hahn picked up a valuable endorsement from the California Young Democrats (CYD).
The California Young Democrats (CYD) is the official youth arm of the California Democratic Party, comprised of progressive people ages 14-35. For almost a century, the CYD has played an important role in California politics.
“California Young Democrats are proud to join the Los Angeles County Young Democrats, the California Democratic Party, and nearly every other local Democratic Club in the new 44th Congressional District in endorsing Janice Hahn for re-election,” said Jennifer Longley, President of California Young Democrats (CYD). “As a strong and courageous trailblazer who not only represents our values, but also the fighting spirit of activists, organizers, and democratic leaders, we believe Janice Hahn is the best candidate to represent this new district.”
“I am a firm believer in the importance of youth activism and engagement in government,” said Congresswoman Hahn. “That’s why this endorsement means so much to me. It also provides a significant boost to my campaign because these are the organizers and grassroots activists who help reach out to voters and get out the vote.”
The California Young Democrats are committed to creating a bloc of young voters who will elect Democrats for an entire generation. Using proven peer-to-peer campaign methods, Young Democrats have made significant differences in races all over California.
