Fullerton, CA – California’s 29th Senate District is home to more registered Democrats than Republicans for the first time since it was created in 2011. The political shift, which has been steady over the past year, has intensified in recent months and is likely to continue as excitement around November’s Presidential Election builds.
In response to the voter registration data, Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León stated:
“Senate District 29 represents an important opportunity for the Democratic Party. We have a great candidate in Josh Newman, who has the creativity, smarts, and drive that we need to win. I also believe that Donald Trump’s presence on the ballot will have a significant impact on the outcome of this election. I am encouraged by the steady gains our party is continuing to make in this region, and I am optimistic about Josh’s campaign.”
