Re: “Guillen, Quirk, and Wiener, and Yes on B, 28, and 29

I have trouble understanding the characterization of Abel Guillen as the "more progressive" candidate than Rob Bonta. Bonta has been dual endorsed by many of the same organizations that Guillen claims support from, including the California League of Conservation Voters and SEIU. Bonta has by far the most endorsements from organized labor, and also the most Democratic Club endorsements of any candidate for Assembly District 18. Lastly, Bonta is exclusively endorsed by the United Farm Workers, one of the most progressive endorsements in the race. It seems that Bonta is the more consistent and proven progressive candidate.

Re: “The 18th Assembly District: This Year's Most Competitive Race

It's important to note that Rob Bonta practically grew up alongside union workers (his mother and father were organizers for the United Farm Workers and worked with Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, and many others) and has also garnered the most union support and union endorsements (including the UFW) of any District 18 candidate. He is the only candidate who has experience as an elected city official, working with diverse communities to take on tough issues. Finally, as the only candidate with a young family, Rob understands, on the most fundamental level, what our working families are going through in these tough times.
