What my mom's race means for Gen Z

Hi friends, I'm Julian! You may have already heard from my little sister, Victoria, about what my mom's race for Congress means to her. I doubt I'll be able to outdo her, but I'll give it my best shot. (I'd appreciate it if you read till the very end.)  Right now, I'm 20 years old and in college st…

I'm a bit spooked

Hi friends, I know you've heard from me a lot lately, but I'm a bit spooked – and not by my kids' Halloween costumes!  Today's the final day to meet our end-of-month fundraising goal, and right now, we're just $713 short of reaching it.  If you haven't already, will you please rush a contribution s…

Absolute chaos in Republican leadership

It’s now been two weeks that the House has been without a speaker, friends.   Earlier today, House Republicans FAILED TO ELECT A SPEAKER. AGAIN.   This chaos has to end. That's why I'm asking you to please chip in any amount to help our campaign unseat my far-right opponent and flip the House. CHI…

Before 11:59 PM

Friends,  I’ve been spending a lot of time talking to voters on the phone and in person.  I hear one thing over and over again: Young Kim is not serving our district in Congress.  I’m so tired of watching her take voters and families for granted.  If you’re also tired of watching Young Kim prioritiz…

The hardest part about running for Congress

Friends, Every day, when I talk to voters on a call, at a local event or even on the street in my neighborhood, I’m reminded of why I’m campaigning for Congress and of my life’s mission:                                            PUBLIC SERVICE.  You may hear a ton of politicians proclaiming to be p…

My daughters should have the same rights I did

Friends, You’re probably getting a ton of emails on abortion rights but I want to emphasize the importance of today. Exactly one year ago, the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade, taking away the reproductive rights of millions of women across America.  I’ll never forget that day. Like so many oth…

I'll never forget what this MAGA extremist told me

Friends, In November 2021, a Jan. 6 insurrectionist showed up to my school board meeting in Tustin. I’ll never forget what he said: “You’re going to have an army attacking you.”MAGA extremists like these have harassed school board members across the country.  Honestly, I feel bad for these people.
