Los Angeles – California Governor Jerry Brown has endorsed Senator Dianne Feinstein’s campaign for reelection. Governor Brown joins Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Barbara Boxer, US House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and 22 members of Congress, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, Secretary of State Alex Padilla, State Controller Betty Yee, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, United Farmworkers of America, International Association of Firefighters, Teamsters Joint Council District 7 and many other leaders in endorsing Senator Feinstein’s reelection.

Governor Brown said: “More than ever, we need Dianne Feinstein's steady leadership in the US Senate -- she's exactly the right person to ensure that Trump is held accountable. Dianne will continue to stand up for immigrants and fight to protect our healthcare and the environment. I'm glad to endorse her for reelection.”

California Senator Dianne Feinstein said: “I want to thank our great Governor Jerry Brown for endorsing my reelection and for his vote of confidence. Gov. Brown is a California original and I’ve long admired his leadership and record of accomplishment throughout his career in public service to our state. His support and friendship means so much to me and I look forward to having him on my team during this campaign.”

Since her election in 1992, Sen. Feinstein has focused on solving problems facing California and our nation. Her accomplishments include legislation increasing vehicle fuel economy standards; preserving the Mojave Desert, Lake Tahoe and our forests; consumer protection, food safety and cyber security; drought relief; securing funding for critical projects; and commonsense gun reform, including the landmark assault weapons ban.

Sen. Feinstein’s career has been one of firsts – she was the first woman President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, the first woman Mayor of San Francisco, the first woman elected Senator of California, the first woman member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the first woman to be ranking member of the Committee. She also was the first woman to chair the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Rules and Administration Committee. Today, she continues to work on critical issues and fight for California’s values.
