17 Jul Ron Birnbaum Impresses With Josh Newman Endorsement, Huge Fundraising Haul In AD-51 Bid
Momentum is in Ron’s favor as he scores decisive wins in the crucial first fundraising round of the campaign.
LOS ANGELES, CA – Physician and veteran Dr. Ron Birnbaum garnered the endorsement of State Senator Josh Newman in his bid to replace Congressman Jimmy Gomez in the upcoming special election for California’s 51st State Assembly District.
Josh Newman, a bold Democrat, who represents the Southland’s 29th Senate District, announced his support by saying:
“I am pleased to endorse Dr. Ron Birnbaum in his campaign to represent the citizens of California’s 51st Assembly District. From his service in the United States Navy to his current work as a physician serving patients in Los Angeles, so many of whom have been devastated by our broken healthcare system, Ron has already proven himself a genuine public servant. Sacramento needs more dedicated, straight-shooting people like Ron who will listen, ask thoughtful questions, and then work tirelessly on behalf of real people to find solutions to California’s many pressing challenges. I would welcome Ron as a colleague in the Assembly, fighting with energy and integrity for good jobs, education, the environment, affordable housing, and the needs of the communities in the 51st district and all of California.”
Today’s endorsement follows Ron Birnbaum’s release of his financial statement after the first filing deadline, where he successfully raised over $182,000 for his campaign. The fundraising haul now puts Birnbaum’s campaign in the lead, cementing his claim as a strong candidate that the community believes will be a fierce advocate for passing universal healthcare, securing jobs and defending undocumented workers from unprecedented attacks.
