Washington, D.C. – Latino Victory Fund congratulated Robert Garcia for winning the race for California’s 42nd Congressional District. Garcia is the first LGBTQ+ immigrant elected to Congress.
‘Mayor Garcia’s win is a milestone for the LGBTQ+ and immigrant communities. Congress must reflect the communities it represents, and Mayor Garcia’s win means the LGBTQ+ and immigrant communities will have more representation in Congress and a strong advocate on their side. Voters elected Mayor Garcia to represent them in Washington because he’s a proven leader and a hard-working elected official who gets things done for his community. He’ll be an unwavering voice in Congress for progressive policies to improve his district, including protecting voting rights, expanding healthcare access, and creating an economy that works for everyone. Latino Victory is honored to congratulate Mayor Garcia for his historic victory.”
