CHC BOLD PAC Endorses Rep. Jim Costa for Re-Election in California’s 21st Congressional District

As part of its commitment to expanding Latino representation in Congress while defending the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, today CHC BOLD PAC is endorsing Representative Jim Costa for re-election to California’s 21st District. BOLD PAC Chairman Ruben Gallego released the following statement on the endorsement:

“Representative Jim Costa has been one of the strongest defenders of immigrants’ rights for decades, supporting comprehensive immigration reform to fix our broken immigration system. From standing up for solutions to address the plight of our DREAMers, to supporting the Farmworker Modernization Act to provide legal status with a path to citizenship for America’s farm workers – some of the hardest working people you will ever meet – Representative Costa is a true champion for our immigrant community, and we are proud to support his reelection.”

“I am proud to receive the support of BOLD PAC. America is a nation of immigrants, from immigrants past to immigrants present, who have shaped our nation from its inception. The story of our immigrant friends and neighbors is the story of the American Dream. Whether it is in rural America, like the district I represent, or in the suburbs and cities, we can trace our success as a nation straight to America’s immigrant history. I will never stop fighting for the rights of all immigrants, the people who make our nation strong and vibrant,” said Representative Jim Costa.

BOLD PAC is dedicated to increasing diversity in the House and Senate by getting more Latinos and Latinas elected. In 2020, BOLD PAC helped elect two new Latino Members to the House -- Congresswoman Teresa Leger Fernandez, the first Latina to represent New Mexico’s 3rd district, and Congressman Ritchie Torres, the first openly LGBTQ+ Afro-Latino. BOLD PAC also helped send two new Latinos to the Senate -- Senators Ben Ray Lujan and Alex Padilla. Additionally, BOLD PAC played an integral role in protecting the Democratic majority by endorsing 117 candidates across the country and contributing $1 million directly to their campaigns. These efforts helped elect and re-elect 45 Members of Congress.
