Rudy Salas Added to Competitive DCCC ‘Red to Blue’ Program

Assemblyman Salas is ready to take on David Valadao’s failed record and deliver for Central Valley families

Today, DCCC Chairman Sean Patrick Maloney announced that the DCCC added twelve candidates to the highly competitive Red to Blue program.

On that list is Assemblyman Rudy Salas, who is running to kick Republican David Valadao out of office and be the first Latino to represent California’s newly drawn 22nd district, which is now the most heavily Hispanic congressional district in the state.

Salas earned a spot on the DCCC’s coveted Red to Blue program by surpassing aggressive goals for grassroots engagement, local support, campaign organization, and fundraising. Beyond his record of leadership – like being the only Democrat to vote against a gas tax hike on Central Valley families – and his ability to build a winning campaign infrastructure, Salas has an authentic message and deep ties to the diverse communities he will serve in Congress.

“As the soon-to-be first Latino elected to Congress in the Central Valley, Rudy Salas will give the residents of CA-22 the voice in Washington they deserve. Rudy worked his way from laboring in the fields of Central Valley with his father to the California State Assembly – where he has a proud record of cutting costs and delivering results for working families,” said DCCC spokesperson Maddy Mundy. “Rudy is ready to take on David Valadao and his failed record of voting against Social Security, affordable health care and good-paying jobs for the Central Valley.”

Red to Blue is a highly competitive battle-tested DCCC program that arms top-tier candidates with organizational and fundraising support to help them continue to develop strong campaigns. Through Red to Blue, the DCCC also provides strategic guidance, staff resources, candidate trainings and more.
