California’s 21st (CA - 21)

Updated: September 17, 2020

Overview

David Valadao is just another corrupt politician and businessman putting his party and his own self-interest ahead of hard-working families.

Summary

Voters in Fresno and Bakersfield need to see and Hispanic voters on the go under 50 need to see:

  • David Valadao votes with Trump 99% of the time, including for Trump’s harmful agenda on health care. Valadao voted with Trump to gut protections for patients with pre-existing conditions, create what AARP called an “age tax” where insurance companies could charge older people five times more than others, and eliminate health coverage for more than 60,000 people in our community.

  • While in Congress, David Valadao made millions from his business — but Valadao was repeatedly sued for fraud and failing to pay over ten million in debts.  Valadao’s business failed to pay taxes and filed for bankruptcy — sticking taxpayers, workers, and small businesses with a thirteen million dollar bill. Worse, after a worker’s arm was cut off at Valadao’s business — due to a dangerous piece of Valadao’s machinery — the state investigated and fined Valadao’s business for failing to protect workers and a jury ruled Valadao’s business was to blame.
