Irvine, CA – The NewDemPAC announced that Dave Min, Democratic candidate for Congress in California’s 45th Congressional District, has been added to the coalition’s 2018 Candidate Watch List.  

“The New Democrats stand for finding pragmatic solutions to the issues that working American families face, including making college more affordable for everyone, creating good paying jobs, addressing our eroding infrastructure, and keeping our communities safe,” Min said. “As a father of three young children who cares deeply about the future we are leaving behind for the next generation, these principles align closely with my own values that I hope to bring to Washington, DC.

“Looking ahead, there is a lot of work to be done to re-energize the Democratic Party’s appeal and pick up seats next November. My NewDem colleagues and I will continue to work tirelessly to identify forward-thinking leaders, like Dave, who want to join us in Congress as we reject partisan gridlock and build an economy that leaves no American behind.”
