LARA GETS CRUCIAL ENDORSEMENT FROM LA MAYOR ERIC GARCETTI

Backing from Wildly Popular LA Mayor Gives Boost to Ricardo Lara’s Bid for CA Insurance Commissioner

LONG BEACH, CA- Fueling his campaign with a new injection of energy and reinforcing his formidability, today California State Senator Ricardo Lara was endorsed by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

In a released statement announcing the endorsement, Garcetti declared:

“Ricardo Lara has fought vigorously to bring progress and prosperity to the people of California. He's been a fighter for immigrant rights, pushed hard to take on climate change by advancing forward-thinking environmental protections and helped to raise California's statewide minimum wage. These are a few of the reasons why I'm fully confident Ricardo Lara is the best choice to stand up for our state's consumers as our next California Insurance Commissioner. I'm proud to endorse Ricardo Lara."


Today's announcement follows the release of the Senator's new digital video ad, titled, "Embolden," which takes aim at Donald Trump's backwards agenda and the President's comments saying that "California is out of control," by illustrating the sharp contrast between the Oval Office's agenda and that of Lara's.
