June 2, 2018

Los Angeles – Congresswoman Maxine Waters has endorsed Senator Dianne Feinstein’s campaign for reelection.

Congresswoman Waters said: “I’m proud to endorse Dianne Feinstein for reelection to the United States Senate. Senator Feinstein has been instrumental in fighting back against Donald Trump's attacks on the rule of law. As ranking member of the Senate Judiciary committee, she is on the frontlines working to stop Trump's judicial nominees who want to roll back civil rights, voting rights, and the rights of women. We need Dianne in Washington now more than ever to make sure that Donald Trump is held accountable and to combat the radical Republican agenda.”

Senator Feinstein said: “I am honored to receive Congresswoman Waters' endorsement. We have worked closely together in standing up for California values and we will continue to fight back against the targeted attacks on California by Donald Trump and his Republican allies.”

Congresswoman Waters joins President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Governor Jerry Brown, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Barbara Boxer, US House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and 24 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, AFT College Staff Guild Local 1521A, and many state and local leaders across California who have endorsed Senator Feinstein’s reelection.

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; protecting amateur athletes from sexual abuse; 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.
