Assemblymember Isaac Bryan announced his endorsement of Christy Holstege for State Assembly today. His support builds on Christy’s momentum – he is the 25th Assemblymember to rally around the desert Democrat – and underscores Christy’s reputation as a dedicated advocate for underserved communities and a trusted champion for civil rights and social justice.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Assemblymember Isaac Bryan,” Holstege stated. “His dedication to social justice and his tireless work for our community align with my own values and vision for a more equitable California. Together, we will work to make meaningful change for all Californians.”
The closely watched seat remains a top pickup priority for California Assembly Democrats after Holstege lost to her GOP opponent by just 85 votes in 2022, in one of the closest races in California legislative history. Christy’s campaign continues to out-raise and out-work her Republican opponent, garnering high-profile endorsements and significant local grassroots support.
In addition to Assemblymember Bryan, Christy is endorsed by Assembly Speaker Robert Rivas (D- Salinas), and Assemblymembers Dawn Addis (D- Morro Bay), Rebecca Bauer-Kahan (D- Orinda), Isaac Bryan (D- Los Angeles), Lisa Calderon (D- Whittier), Juan Carrillo (D- Palmdale), Sabrina Cervantes (D- Riverside), Rick Chavez-Zbur (D- Los Angeles), Laura Friedman (D- Glendale), Jesse Gabriel (D- Palmdale), Corey Jackson (D- Perris), Alex Lee (D- San Jose), Evan Low (D- Sunnyvale), Josh Lowenthal (D- Long Beach), Tina McKinnor (D- Hawthorne), Liz Ortega-Toro (D- San Leandro), Gail Pellerin (D- Santa Cruz), Cottie Petrie-Norris (D- Irvine), Eloise Gómez Reyes (D- Colton), Pilar Schiavo (D- Chatsworth), Avelino Valencia (D- Anaheim), Christopher Ward (D- San Diego), Buffy Wicks (D- Oakland); and Speaker Emeritus Anthony Rendon (D- Lakewood).
