“Thanks to our passionate members, we are pleased to support the campaigns of congressional candidates Mike Levin and Katie Porter,” said WAVE president Joanna Weiss. “It is difficult to imagine a more important election in our lifetimes, and we are collectively taking critical action to impact the results. Beyond our financial contributions, we are encouraging our members to donate their time and energy to volunteering on campaigns in their respective districts. From past experience, we know that the ground game is what wins races.”
Mike Levin, an environmental attorney, advanced to what is widely regarded as one of the most competitive elections in the country against a field of 15 other candidates in the California primary on June 5. He faces Republican Diane Harkey in November. Katie Porter, a law professor, advanced to the midterm election after a hotly contested race against three other Democratic candidates in the June primary. She will face Republican incumbent Mimi Walters in the fall election.
