Latino Victory Fund Endorses Congressional Candidate Nanette Barragán

Washington, DC – Latino Victory Fund is proud to endorse Congressional Candidate Nanette Barragán for California’s 44th Congressional District. This is Latino Victory Fund’s first round of endorsements for the 2016 cycle. Other endorsements include Darren Soto, Pete Gallego and Salud Carbajal. All four Congressional candidates have a proven record of supporting issues that are important to Latinos.

Cristóbal J. Alex, President of Latino Victory Fund said, “We are proud to endorse Nanette Barragán for Congress. Nanette is a proven Latina leader and public servant who has been a champion for our community and has devoted her life to increasing opportunities for others. We look forward to helping get Nanette elected and having her in Congress fighting for our families.”

Former Hermosa Beach Mayor Nanette Barragán is running to fill the open seat currently held by U.S. Rep. Janice Hahn in a majority Latino district in Southern California.

The daughter of immigrants from Mexico, Nanette grew up near Carson, CA, the youngest of 11 kids. Driven by a commitment to helping hardworking families in communities like hers, Nanette has dedicated her career to public service — from serving in the White House for President Clinton working on African American outreach to working for the NAACP to help address racial inequalities in health care.  Nanette remembers watching her mother study for her U.S. citizenship exam and has said her parents taught her to treasure and protect her right to vote and never take it for granted. In 2012, as part of the Obama Voter Protection team, Nanette recruited attorneys from across the country to travel to Florida to ensure that every eligible voter had the opportunity to vote.

Now Nanette is running for Congress to make sure other kids growing up in families like hers have access to the American Dream – the opportunity to find a good-paying job, access to great schools, and safe, healthy communities where you can raise a family.

Nanette Barragán, said “My parents came to this country from Mexico to make a better life for themselves and their children.  Today I have had the privilege of, among other things, working my way through college and law school, successfully taking on special interests to protect our environment, and serving as the first Latina ever elected in Hermosa Beach.  Now, running for Congress to represent the 44th District, I look forward to continuing to make my parents proud and serve our community. Latino Victory Fund does so much to ensure that Latinos are part of our political process, I am proud to receive their endorsement and I look forward to working with them to ensure that everyone in our community has a voice at the table and the opportunity to achieve the American dream.”
