CHC BOLD PAC Announces Seven More Endorsements

CHC BOLD PAC Announces Seven More Endorsements

The CHC BOLD PAC, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus’ political body, announced that it was throwing its support behind seven candidates. One of them is Xochitl Torres Small who is running for New Mexico’s Second Congressional District open seat, as the current incumbent, Republican Congressman Steve Pearce, makes his run at Governor. They’re also endorsing Steven Horsford in Nevada’s Fourth Congressional District for the seat being vacated by Congressman Rubén Kihuen, who is stepping down amid harassment allegations. In the race for California’s 45th Congressional District, BOLD PAC is throwing its weight behind Dave Min, who is running to unseat Congresswoman Mimi Walters (R)Joe Neguse, running in Colorado’s Second Congressional District, was also among the endorsements this round. Neguse is running to fill the open seat left by Congressman Jared Polis’ (D)gubernatorial run. “BOLD PAC is also proud of the diversity represented in this latest round of endorsements — from race and background to geography and gender — I am confident these individuals will play a pivotal role in helping take back the House,” said BOLD PAC Chair Congressman Tony Cárdenas (D-CA). The group also announced that they were backing fellow Democrats Susie Lee (NV-03), Kathy Manning (NC-13), and Max Rose (NY-11). This brings the number of BOLD PAC endorsements to 21 candidates so far. More here.
