Candidate for U.S. Congress Jay Chen has garnered support from the most progressive elected officials nationwide while using campaign messaging which would suggest otherwise.
Despite running as a moderate Democrat, candidate for California’s Congressional District 45, Jay Chen, has amassed endorsements from far-left leaning public officials.
Among Chen’s far-left endorsers is California State Senator Alex Padilla who has been rated the furthest left senator in U.S. Congress, a supporter of the Green New Deal and other progressive efforts for $15 minimum wage nationwide and tuition-free college.
Chen has also been endorsed by U.S. Senator from Illinois Tammy Duckworth who recently joined a group of senate colleagues to introduce the Abortion is Health Care Everywhere Act which would allow taxpayer funding of overseas abortion. In a similar vein, Chen has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood.
Members of U.S. Congress who have endorsed Jay Chen include self-proclaimed “proud member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus” Rep. Alan Lowenthal, Rep. Gracie Meng who has supported Medicare for All, and firmly partisan Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff.
Other far-left endorsers of Jay Chen include California Attorney General Rob Bonta who “thrilled” the progressive left, California State Controller Betty Yee who has been accused of wasting taxpayer dollars, and organizations like Progressive Turnout Project, the Sierra Club, and more.
Chen’s endorsements appear to match up with the progressive policies he is running on, such as socialized medicine and expanding access to abortion.
The seat which Chen is running for, California’s 45th Congressional District, includes Placentia, Buena Park, Artesia, Cerritos, Cypress, La Palma, Hawaiian Gardens, Los Alamitos, Rossmoor, Fountain Valley, Midway City, Westminster, Garden Grove, and parts of Brea and Fullerton.
After reading through Chen’s endorsements and his “On The Issues,” that leaves the question: is Chen as moderate as he touts himself to be?
