DFA enthused by Rep. Mike Levin’s reelection in CA-49
Rep. Mike Levin claimed victory in his reelection race for California’s 49th Congressional district, a former Republican-stronghold.
Rep. Levin fended off multiple Republican challengers this cycle, after he flipped this seat in 2018 with Democracy for America’s support as a part of the group’s strategy to flip the House of Representatives. Democracy for America endorsed Rep. Levin for reelection in 2019.
DFA Chair Charles Chamberlain on Mike Levin’s win in CA-49 Congressional District:
“Rep. Mike Levin’s reelection tonight is cause for celebration, both because one of the most steadfast progressives is heading back to Washington and Levin has once again proven that the inclusive populist coalition of supporters he built two years ago is here to stay.
“From making good on his promise to hold a town hall every single month of his entire term, to fighting to keep folks in their homes as we face a deadly eviction crisis during a pandemic, Rep. Levin has kept a laser-focused eye on the needs of the families who call California’s 49th Home.
“Democracy for America was honored to stand with Rep. Levin in 2018, we were thrilled to endorse him again in this race, and we’re even more excited to continue working with him in the years ahead.” -- Charles Chamberlain, Chair, Democracy for America
