California Governor Gavin Newsom Endorses Jim Costa for Congress

Today, Congressman Jim Costa’s campaign for re-election announced that California Governor Gavin Newsom has endorsed Congressman Costa.

Governor Newsom said: “Congressman Costa and I have always worked well together for the people of the San Joaquin Valley and California. From investing in the state’s infrastructure to building a much needed medical school, we’re focused on building a better, brighter future for the people of the valley and our great state.”

Gavin Newsom was first elected Governor in 2018 and has helped navigate California through an unprecedented series of crises, including devastating wildfires, an economic downturn, and the worst pandemic in 100 years. Prior to his election as Governor, Newsom served as Lieutenant Governor of California.

Congressman Jim Costa said: “I am incredibly honored to receive the support of Governor Gavin Newsom. I know that together, we can continue ensuring our Valley’s families and all Californians have the tools and resources live in thriving neighborhoods, send their children to safe schools, and have access to clean air and water. I am looking forward to another term in Congress and delivering even more for our Valley.”

The primary will be held on June 7, 2022.
