DELANO, Calif. (KGET) — Delano Mayor Bryan Osorio has filed papers to run for the 21st Congressional District seat in 2022, according to the Federal Elections Commission.
Osorio made the announcement on social media Wednesday afternoon. He also launched his campaign website.
“I will fight for Medicare for All, the Green New Deal and immigration reform,” Osorio said in a tweet.
Osorio joins a long list of candidates in the race, including fellow Democrat Nicole Parra and Republican former Fresno Councilmember Chris Mathys. Former 21st District Congressman TJ Cox has said he will not make a formal decision on candidacy until district lines are re-drawn this fall.
Republican David Valadao reclaimed the 21st Congressional District seat from Cox, who had ousted him in 2018.
