KATIE PORTER EARNS FIRST ENVIRONMENTAL ENDORSEMENT IN CA-45 FROM OCEAN CHAMPIONS
Ocean Champions Endorses Katie Porter for Congress
Irvine — Leading congressional candidate Katie Porter today announced the endorsement of Ocean Champions, the only political organization dedicated to building champions for ocean conservation in Congress. Katie’s environmental priorities stand in stark contrast to her Republican opponent Mimi Walters who recently signed a letter to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to open up the California coastline to drilling.
“I am proud to have the support of Ocean Champions because fighting for clean and healthy oceans is a top priority for me, the 45th district community, and all of Orange County,” said Katie Porter. “In Congress, I’ll stand with Ocean Champions as a voice for our oceans; I will fight Trump’s disastrous offshore drilling plan, protect Orange County’s beautiful coast, and defend clean air and water standards.”
Katie earned early endorsements from Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren and was the first House challenger to receive the endorsement from EMILY’s List.
Katie Porter is a UC Irvine Professor of Law, mother of three, and consumer advocate who has spent decades taking on the big banks that hurt middle-class families – and winning. Now, she’s taking that fight against the powerful special interests to Washington.
