What People Are Saying
California's working families need a strong voice in the US Senate. That's why I am supporting Loretta Sanchez for US Senate. I have served with her and I know her record - from her courageous vote against the Iraq War, her leadership on immigration reform, and her experience on national security and economic fairness, we can count on Loretta.
Congresswoman Janice Hahn
I’ve known Loretta Sanchez for almost 20 years. I volunteered on her first campaign for the House in 1996, and watched her fight long odds and win against an entrenched Republican Congressman. Since then, she’s won even more victories on Capitol Hill, where she has been a tireless advocate for working families in her district. She’ll bring that same drive, energy, and focus on the issues that really matter to the United States Senate. As a former public school teacher, I trust Loretta Sanchez to do what’s right for our students and schools. I couldn’t be more honored to serve alongside her in the House, and I am proud to support her as she runs for the United States Senate.
Congressman Mark Takano
I have watched the work Loretta Sanchez has done since she was first elected. I have no doubt that she is by far the best qualified candidate in the Senate race--her experience in military and foreign affairs is outstanding. She is just what we need to effectively address problems affecting our nation. I trust Loretta to speak honestly about the issues.

Congresswoman Sanchez's candidacy is an exciting opportunity for Californians to elect their first Latina to the U.S. Senate. Loretta has a proven record of fighting on behalf of working families and advancing the quality of life for Latinos everywhere. I have no doubt that she will be a courageous champion for our communities bringing our country closer to the ideal of equal representation.

Lucille Roybal-Allard had this to say: Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is the most experienced and most qualified person to become California's next U.S. Senator. I have worked with Loretta in Congress for nearly 20 years, and I am fully confident that she will be an effective champion for our state. As a national security expert, Loretta is and will continue to be a valuable voice on the most critical security issues facing our nation and our world. With so many challenges facing our state and our country, the Senate is no place for on-the-job training. Loretta is a seasoned legislator who is ready to effectively serve in the U.S. Senate from day one.

“California veterans and military families need Congresswoman Sanchez in the U.S. Senate. She has been a leading voice for women in the military and a tireless advocate in ensuring that our veterans receive the care and benefits they deserve. Loretta is a thoughtful and experienced legislator who knows how to fight and win for her community’s best interests." Congressman Sam Farr has represented California’s Central Coast for 22 years and is its longest serving Member of Congress. Farr serves on the powerful House Appropriations Committee and is currently the longest serving democrat on the Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs.

Orange, CA – Today, the Loretta Sanchez for U.S. Senate campaign announced the endorsement of the Orange County Employees Association (OCEA) for Loretta Sanchez’s bid to replace retiring Senator Barbara Boxer in the United States Senate, citing her strong and consistent voice for working men and women, and pro-labor voting record. Orange County Employees Association (OCEA) is the largest independent public-employee labor union in Orange County. It represents 18,000 public employees in their collective bargaining with public agencies. Founded in 1937, the organization is directly responsible for many of the benefits negotiated by public employees throughout the County of Orange. "Loretta Sanchez has always been a strong and consistent voice for working people in Orange County,” OCEA General Manager Jennifer Muir said. “With a 93 percent pro-labor legislative scorecard, she is battle tested. And when we asked our elected representatives to condemn union busting legislation, to protect retirement security and to take a stand for fair pay, Congresswoman Sanchez was there.” “I am truly honored to have the endorsement of the Orange County Employees Association,” said Rep. Loretta Sanchez. “I have been proud to stand with my labor brothers and sisters both on the floor of the United States Congress, as well as behind the picket lines. Safe working conditions, livable wages, a secure retirement, the right to organize - these are values I have stood to protect and fight for in the U.S. Congress, and I will continue to do so as a United States Senator.” ### - See more at: http://loretta.org/press-release/orange-county-employees-association-endorses-loretta-sanchez#sthash.1zNb7xDe.dpuf
