CA-50: Ammar Campa-Najjar (D)
Ammar Campa-Najjar was born in East San Diego County, the son of a Christian working-class mother who raised him with help from family and neighbors. From his first job as a church janitor to serving in the White House, he has devoted his life to service.
Campa-Najjar is running to give back to his mother’s generation, and to all those seeking to live and retire with dignity. As a business owner, he knows the burdens we face. As a Labor Department official, Campa-Najjar has served working families.
He says we all have a role to play in restoring America’s core values: responsibility from all; opportunity for all. That’s why in Washington, he worked with Republicans and Democrats to advance critical programs, including apprenticeship jobs that pay double the average American’s income.
So while some in Washington vote to take health care away, undermine Social Security and Medicare, and attack women’s rights, Campa-Najjar pledges to stand up for families and work with members of both parties for common sense solutions.
