Van Hollen Statement on the Special Election in CA-32
DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen released the following statement on the special election primary to represent California's 32nd Congressional District:
"Congratulations to Judy Chu on her victory in today's special election primary to represent California's 32nd District in Congress.
"As a School Board Member, Mayor, State Assemblywoman, and a leader on the California State Board of Equalization, Judy Chu is qualified to advocate for California's middle class families in this economy.
"I am confident she will win the special election runoff in July and will be an outstanding leader in our fight to help President Obama take our country in a New Direction."
The Congressional seat in California's 32nd District was left vacant by the resignation of Congresswoman Hilda Solis who became U.S. Labor Secretary for President Obama.
