LAGUNA BEACH, CA – Continuing to strengthen the support from Democratic Party leaders for his Congressional campaign, today, Dr. Hans Keirstead received the endorsement of fellow scientist and business entrepreneur, Congressman Bill Foster (IL-11).
Making his endorsement public, Rep. Bill Foster stated:
“As a scientist myself, I know Dr. Hans Keirstead possesses a fact-based, analytical approach to problem solving because he has used it his entire career to create groundbreaking medical treatments that have saved countless lives.
I also see firsthand how the rhetoric from both Donald Trump and Dana Rohrabacher divides the country and impedes practical solutions for healthcare, job opportunities, and climate change that would help the American people.
Washington needs someone whose priority is solutions not politics. I’m proud to stand with Dr. Hans Keirstead and wholeheartedly support his campaign for the 48th Congressional District.”
Rep. Foster’s announcement comes after Keirstead received the endorsement of Rep. Jerry McNerney (CA-9) and shows his growing support among the Democratic Party’s elected officials.
Dr. Hans Keirstead: A husband, father, scientist and Orange County business leader, Dr. Hans Keirstead is one of the world’s leading innovators in stem cell research and medical treatments. Hans has led therapy breakthroughs for late-stage cancers, multiple sclerosis, ALS, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal cord injury, and retinal diseases. Hans has launched multiple successful medical research companies in Orange County and is currently CEO at AIVITA Biomedical, where he is focusing on developing a cancer treatment that is helping 72% of late stage cancer patients to survive, in FDA-approved clinical trials.
California’s 48th District has been represented by Dana Rohrabacher for three decades. Congressman Rohrabacher’s ties to suspected Russian intelligence officials have garnered national attention. Hillary Clinton carried the district in 2016. Democratic registration in the 48th has increased steadily over the past several cycles.
