LOU CORREA RECEIVES CA SENATE PRESIDENT PRO-TEM KEVIN DE LEÓN’S ENDORSEMENT
Correa Gains Prestigious Backing from California’s State Senate Leader in CA-46 Contest
SANTA ANA, CA— Kicking off the week with a major momentum-building endorsement, today former State Senator Lou Correa scored a big win with the announcement that California’s State Senate President Pro-Tem Kevin de León was supporting his campaign to represent California’s 46th Congressional District seat.
In announcing his support of former State Senator Lou Correa, California State Senate President Pro-Tem Kevin de León remarked:
“If we’re ever going to put a stop to the endless dysfunction in Washington, then California ought to send more common-sense focused and experienced leaders to Congress. Having stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Lou Correa in the State Legislature, I’ve seen him in action. Lou knows how to navigate through tough legislative waters in order to find common ground on big public policy issues. That’s precisely the kind of new leadership that Washington needs, and it’s why I’m proud to stand with my friend Lou Correa in his campaign for Congress.”
Underscoring his force in the contest for the 46th District, former State Senator Lou Correa has recently been locking down key support, rolling out the following wave of endorsements:
- Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair and Congresswoman Linda Sánchez
- Congresswoman & former California Assembly Speaker Karen Bass
- California’s Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson
- California State Treasurer John Chiang
- Building Our Leadership Diversity (BOLD) PAC
Correa served in the California State Senate, representing the 34th District, from 2006- 2014 and served the cities of Anaheim, Buena Park, Fullerton, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, Stanton and Westminster. Prior to the Senate, he served on the Orange County Board of Supervisors representing the 1st District. Before his time on the Board, Correa served in the California State Assembly representing the 69th District.
