IRVINE, CA – Teamsters Joint Council 42 announced their endorsement of Democrat Dave Min’s candidacy for the 45th Congressional District. Min is running to unseat two-term Republican incumbent Mimi Walters (R-Laguna Niguel), who has a 98.3% Trump score and was a key vote and supporter for the disastrous GOP tax bill.
Randy Cammack, President of the Joint Council, and Raymond Whitmer, Political Screening Chairman, released the following statement:
“We are proud to support Dave Min’s campaign for Congress. We are impressed by the tremendous job Dave has done advocating for working families over his career and since announcing his candidacy in April. We know that when Dave is elected to Congress, he will be a champion for working families who will fight to strengthen our economy, create good paying jobs, fight for real tax reform that benefits the middle class instead of billionaires and foreign investors, and fix our healthcare system so that it works for everyone.”
The Teamsters are the first labor union to endorse in the race for the 45th. Teamsters Joint Council 42 represents 23 Teamsters Union Locals located in Southern California, Southern Nevada, Guam, Saipan and Hawaii. Nearly 250,000 working Teamsters and retirees are affiliated with the Joint Council.
“I am so honored and grateful to have the support of the Teamsters and their families. Teamsters are the backbone of our economy. They are our freight drivers, sanitation workers, airline mechanics and school bus drivers. I share their values of hard work and their commitment to grassroots organizing and community engagement,” Dave Min said. “I promise that when I am elected to Congress, I will do my best to represent those values and will work tirelessly to restore the foundations of economic opportunity for all Orange County working families.”
