THE ISSUES

In the face of rancor, dysfunction, and instability in the White House and Washington D.C., California continues to embrace diversity, grow our economy and promote opportunity for all.

Democrats hold 27 of the state’s 40 Senate seats, a two-thirds super-majority. Our party’s electoral success reflects California’s shared values of optimism, inclusion and innovation.
