2022 General Election Endorsements

Federal Statewide Offices
U.S. Senate (Full Term) - Alex Padilla ᐧ 
U.S. Senate (Partial Term) - Alex Padilla

WHY IS ALEX PADILLA ON THE BALLOT TWICE? When Kamala Harris became Vice President, Governor Gavin Newsom appointed Alex to fill her vacant Senate seat. Alex is running to finish Vice President Harris’ term (November 9, 2022-January 2, 2023), and in a separate election for a new full term beginning on January 3, 2023. Make sure you vote for Alex Padilla in both elections so he can remain in the Senate to continue fighting to defend democracy.
