"It's now time to elect a progressive to close the deal here in the 39th. I grew up here and am a lifelong Democrat. This election is the most important of our lifetime. Next Congress may decide whether to impeach a President, respond to Trump's dangerous foreign policy and fight for Americans hurt by Trump's tax reform and attacks on health care."
“Ed already votes with Trump 97% of the time,” said Democratic challenger Sam Jammal. “I don’t know how he distances himself from Trump with his voting record and now spouse working for the guy. Best of luck to him on explaining how he will serve us, not The Donald.”
“Sam represents the American dream with a distinct climate flair. The son of working class immigrants, he’s worked in both government and the private sector to support the clean energy revolution, from solar power to electric vehicles. We’re excited about Sam, and so are his future constituents—our in-district members overwhelmingly voted for Sam in our member survey about the primary.”
"Today is a serious blow to the America I grew up in. I entered the campaign with the firm belief that - while we have our differences in how to get there - whether you are a Republican or Democrat, you cared about the future and making sure we maintain who we are as Americans in a changing economy."
"As a resident of neighboring Fullerton, who spent much of my youth working in Brea and currently frequents numerous local establishments throughout the City, I am concerned about how defending such a clearly unconstitutional ordinance will waste taxpayer dollars and draw negative publicity to this great city."
"We may remember today as the day innovation in America began its slow death. It's not the first time government has chosen the big guys over innovators - but this is a big hit. Once again politics is catering to well-subsidized incumbents over the upstart."
