Hot off the press from the Dunn for Congress campaign:

Santa Ana, Calif. – State Senator Connie Leyva is endorsing Joe Dunn for California’s 46th Congressional District, announced the Dunn campaign.

“Joe Dunn has the strongest record in this race on expanding women’s health care rights,” said State Senator Connie Leyva, who is also a member of the California Legislative Women’s Caucus. “We need his experience in Congress fighting to protect a woman’s right to make her own health care choices.”

Ms. Leyva, now in her second year serving in the California State Senate, was previously the first woman elected as president of the California State Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, representing more than 2.1 million workers throughout the state.

Joe Dunn has thirty years of experience fighting for equality and protecting the rights of consumers, workers, women, and our LGBTQ communities. In particular, Joe Dunn’s work in the legislature on behalf of women’s health care rights earned him a 100% lifetime score from Planned Parenthood.

Joe knows how to hold big corporations and government bureaucracies accountable to Orange County’s middle-class families. He’s empowered communities through the legal system to stop polluters and fought price-gouging drug companies. He investigated Enron and other unethical energy companies manipulating prices.  He took on oil companies ripping off consumers at the gas pump and stood up to gun manufacturers to make our neighborhoods safer.
Joe fought to secure millions of dollars from tobacco companies to be used for local health care services and community clinics. While heading the California Medical Association, Joe worked with physicians to help broaden access to affordable health care for Californians.

Joe lives with his wife, Diane, in their Santa Ana home of nearly twenty years. They have two adult children, Sarah and John. California’s 46th congressional district includes the cities of Anaheim, Garden Grove, Orange, and Santa Ana.
